What to do in
Frankfurt ?

Like many German cities, Frankfurt suffered serious damage during WWII. It was able to get back on its feet, becoming the financial centre of the FRG, then of reunified Germany, building several skyscrapers to house the jewels of the national economy. This prosperity allowed Frankfurt to undertake major renovation work to recover some of its pre-war charm. Old quarters and some of the most beautiful streets were thus resurrected so that visitors could experience its charming and lasting beauty - beauty that inspired Germany’s greatest writer, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, and is sure to do the same for you.



  • Frankfurt, a city of art and art de vivre

    A weekend in Frankfurt might sound strange at first when you start talking to your children about it, but once you’re there, it’s truly delightful. Between selfies at the top of a skyscraper, encounters with dinosaurs, a tête-à-tête with tigers and a round of mini-golf, this city has everything you need for successful family holiday.
    But a romantic getaway or trip with friends will allow you to get an even better taste of Frankfurt hospitality. Because this German city has a speciality that can’t be shared with small children: the night! While it's hard at work during the day, Frankfurt lets down its hair as night falls. The fun usually starts with a drink. Frankfurt has many wine bars that combine the chic with the vintage, in both ambiance and wine. Or perhaps you prefer their traditional taverns where you can order beer or a glass of their classic apfelwein (a cider regionally referred to as ebbelwoi).
    After this starter, continue your evening out in a trendy or upscale restaurant (depending on your mood!) before finishing the night in a music-filled cocktail bar. Frankfurt is the place to be for music lovers: from bel canto to electro, jazz to techno (popularised here by DJs in the 80s), it’s become a legendary part of European club culture.

  • The top 10 things to do in Frankfurt

    • Go back in time - centuries even! - by strolling through Römerberg, Frankfurt’s historic district. Cobblestone streets, a Gothic church, timber-framed houses: here, it’s the Middle Ages.
    • Get above it all by heading up to the top of the Main Tower, at 200 metres up, and to the rooftop of the Zeilgalerie, a shopping centre opposite the business district and its skyscrapers.
    • Then keep going up. This time to the top of the bell tower of the Imperial Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew. 324 steps take you up 95 metres for an incredible view.
    • Walk down the Museumsufer, the Boulevard of Museums. The right bank of the Main is home to the main city museums, including the Städel with its 3,100 paintings by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Monet, Goya, Picasso and more.
    • Continue your culture tour with the MMK, Museum für Modern Kunst. This modern art museum has pieces by Warhol, Lichtenstein and Beuys, a prominent German contemporary artist.
    • Celebrate the memory of Frankfurt’s most famous citizen: Goethe. Fully restored after the war, his house is one of the must-sees of any trip to the city.
    • Go to Jurassic Park - or more precisely to the Naturmuseum Senckenberg, Frankfurt’s natural history museum. It houses the most impressive collection of large dinosaur fossils in Europe. Here you’ll see triceratops, diplodocus, parasaurolophus, and many more.
    • Feed your need for nature at the Palmengarten, a botanical garden with 6,000 different species, and the Frankfurt Zoo which has more than 500.
    • Pick your poison: currywurst, bratwusrt or weißwurst? Each is a delicious Frankfurt speciality sausage. The first is made with curry, the second is roasted, and the third is with parsley and lemon.
    • Experience Frankfurt by night with a glass of apfelwein in the charming Sachsenhausen district and a night of jazz at Jazzkeller, the most famous club in the city which has played host to Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Chet Baker, just to name a few.
