Frankfurt Holidays

Today, Frankfurt functions as the financial backbone of Germany and Continental Europe, facilitating commerce, trade, and transportation throughout the world. Frankfurt can be bewildering to the eye, with massive modern skyscrapers juxtaposed with medieval architecture as old as the 12th century. For a taste of gothic and 15th century architecture, ...

take a stroll in Frankfurt's old town -- Römerberg -- past the Ostzeile, a half-timbered 15th reconstruction, and Alte Nikolaikirche, an early Gothic church built in 1290. Like museums? The Museumsufer district, clustered on both sides of the Main River, educates folks in Jewish history, Roman art, film and anthropology. (Walk the river on Saturdays for Frankfurt's famed flea market.) How about books? Frankfurt hosts the largest book fair in the world every October with publishers from around the world. Decompress from all this heady stuff at a nightclub (located in former bomb shelters and breweries) or one of Frankfurt's large array of hotels, from rural castles to city center skyscrapers.

Frankfurt is a lively and busy city. Efficient in design and has the beautiful botanical gardens. The Senckenberg Museum is worth a visit for dinosaurs. And for shopping the very busy Zeil where you can find the best deals

Brilliant and vibrant place. There are some less desirable areas around the main train station so be mindful and careful. But in general well worth a visit

The financial city goes hand in hand with old town, Römer are one point of interest, and some parks near Berger strasse.


Frankfurt is a financial center in Germany. A lot of the older architecture was destroyed in WWII, but there is a smaller altstadt or old city. There are some really creative buildings. The city has several museums, and most are clustered on the south bank of the Mainz river that runs through the city. Lots of good restaurants as well.

This city really depends on when you visit as there isn't a huge amount to do and it can be labelled as a bit soulless compared to some other more exciting German cities. However, come in December when the Christmas markets are in full swing and you will find that there is plenty to keep you occupied. The markets are excellent and photogenic, the Zoo is excellent and there are some great restaurants.

Old tower and nice area near train station and also open air. Look cool when it sunny and sitting out with chill beer

Stayed here on a one night stop over back from Edinburgh. Has a good feel to it but unfortunately I was here on a Tuesday night in mid January when not many people go out and especially since the Christmas season is over and everyone is resting. The skyline is beautiful at night and there are plenty of things to see. The people I met were very friendly. I has a blue collar feel to it which I like. A good honest working mans city.

Most people know Frankfurt because of its international airport, but it's city is worth spending a day or two in when you're flying through. Stroll beside the River Main and check out the Römerberg while you're in town.

There is a lot to see in Frankfurt. Thrill in the midst of ancient towers and modern skyscrapers, walk along the Main River, visit the Palm Garden, parks and even visit the Zoo. See a lot on your very first day with a Hop On Hop Off bus tour (City Tour Frankfurt) -$18 for all day – ride the circuit with a professionally recorded narration synced to the busses movement – ride it again – and hop off to explore, hop back on for the next stop. Then, if you are mobile (and with Germany’s train system, everybody is) explore Hesse on your way towards Fulda.
