Frankfurt Information

Frankfurt is the fifth largest German city and recognised for its airport Frankfurt am Main, that is the busiest airport in Germany and the common landing place for the majority of international tourists.

Apart from being the gateway for tourism, Frankfurt is the financial centre of Germany, home to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the European Central Bank. Frankfurt is one of the few cities in Germany that has a significant number of skyscrapers and the city hosts the Frankfurt trade fair (Frankfurter Messe) that is the third largest trade fair in the world and established around 1150 AD.

Although the city has an emerging modern look and feel to it, Frankfurt is a place with immense history. The city dates back to the very first centaury of the Roman times and was the place where German kings and emperors were elected and crowned between 855-1792

Frankfurt has many historical attractions and museums throughout the city. One of the most visited historical places is Römer and Römerberg that is the oldest and most beautiful part of the city. The Frankfurt museum embankment on both sides of the Main River is a must stop as you will find all the museums in close proximity and you could spend your entire holiday trying to see them all.

For music and culture a great place to see is the Old Opera House (Alte Oper). Although the opera house was destroyed in the war, it was completely rebuilt to its former glory and is the scene of some very fine musical performances all year round.

The nature lover will enjoy a stroll in Stadtwalt (City forest) in the south of Frankfurt. This is Germany’s largest inner city forest with over 48 square kilometres of nature to explore.

For the partygoer Frankfurt really first come alive after dark. There are hundreds of places to choose from catering for all tastes of entertainment. Some of the best places include Moon 13 for electronic and house music, Jazzkekker for Jazz music, Batschkapp for rock music and King Kamehaneha Club for the posh where you need to dress to impress.
