Frankfurt/Main Germany

Frankfurt am Main is a lively metropolis in Germany that celebrates a fascinating mix of history and modernity as well as commerce and culture. Situated on the banks of River Main, the city has a striking skyline that you can admire while on a cruise or when visiting exhibitions along Frankfurt’s museum embankment, Museumsufer.

Doused in art and history, this city is home to several museums. On your visit to Frankfurt am Main, you can dive deeper into various aspects of the city’s past by exploring the interactive German Film Museum, the Naturmuseum Senckenberg dedicated to natural history and the Goethe House – birthplace of a renowned German writer.

The architecture of this German city ties contemporary designs together with historical reconstructions from the post-war era. On your Frankfurt trip, you’ll find the Commerzbank Tower standing tall in complete contrast to the half-timbered houses in the old town of Altstadt. The other highlights of the city include the Gothic-style Frankfurt Cathedral and the imposing concert hall of Alte Oper.

The city offers plenty of retail options ranging from international luxury stores to local designer boutiques. You can stroll along the pedestrian promenade of Zeil lined with high-street brands and a shopping centre. For fresh foods, wine and Frankfurt’s famous ‘green sauce’, the market hall of Kleinmarkthalle is worth a visit.
