Frankfurt
Travel Guide

Visit the business hub of Germany and delight in Gothic architecture, spectacular art collections and the taste of sweet apple wine.

Enjoy the historic atmosphere and spectacular cityscape of Frankfurt. As one of Europe’s wealthiest cities, it is home to the European Central Bank and boasts the distinction of having Germany’s only skyscrapers. Photograph the stunning skyline that is its best-known landmark. Explore its world-class museums and sample sweet apple wine.

This city hides a great deal of history behind its sleek, modern buildings. Visit the Old Town (Altstadt) for a taste of life in Frankfurt before it became the financial hub for the European Union. Though heavy bombing during World War II damaged the area, most buildings have been faithfully restored to their former look.

Among the Old Town’s best attractions you’ll find the exquisite Römer, Frankfurt’s town hall since the 15th century. Wherever you are, try and spot the ever-present gothic clock tower of the ancient Frankfurt Cathedral.

Head to the Museumsufer (Museum Embankment) to find a collection of world-class museums. This area, situated along the south side of the Main River in the Sachsenhausen district, is home to more than 10 historic institutions. Among the museums are the German Museum of Architecture, the Senckenberg (a natural history museum), and the Städel, where you can see an expansive collection of art dating back to the 14th century.

On the other side of the river, immerse yourself in one of the best collections of post-World War II artworks in the world at the Museum of Modern Art.

Try one of Frankfurt’s delicious local culinary treats. Sample Frankfurt’s famous Handkäse mit Musik, a tart cheese served with onions, or Grüne Soße, a tangy green sauce typically served with eggs and potatoes. The Ebbelwoi, apple wine, is a must for any food gourmand. Find these succulent Frankfurt specialties in Sachsenhausen.

Take advantage of Frankfurt’s efficient subway systems, the S-Bahn and the U-Bahn, to get anywhere in or around the city. Drivers should park at the outer stations and use the subway, as inner-city parking, although plentiful, can fill up quickly.
