Frankfurt Holidays Overview


Frankfurt is Germany's financial and business centre known for its busy airport and futuristic skyline. The city hosts some of the most important and largest tradeshows in the world. In Frankfurt, modern skyscrapers coexist with well maintained ancient buildings.

The city centre is the main tourist attraction in the city but neighbourhoods like Bornheim, and Bockenheim are equally beautiful with their many parks and well maintained homes. Frankfurt has beautiful landmark, including perhaps the most well known, Römerberg. Saint Bartholomew's Cathedral is another important landmark. The gothic building dates back to the 14th century. Saint Paul's Church is a national historic monument of great political importance since it had been the seat of the very first democratic parliament in Germany.

Frankfurt has over 30 museums, many of which have gained international prominence. Some of the most important museums in Frankfurt are the German Architecture Museum, German Film Museum and Nature Museum Seckenberg.

Frankfurt has a strong performing arts scene. Frankfurt Opera is Germany's leading opera and one of the most important in Europe. Schauspiel Frankfurt is another important theatre located in the city's financial district.

The city has a diverse range of clubs, pubs, bars and restaurants. Many pubs and clubs are located in the Ostend district and city centre. Larger concentrations of nightlife centres can also be found in Bockenheim, Bornheim, Nordend and Sachsenhausen. For shopping, the most popular locations are Zeil and Goethestraße.
