Frankfurt, jagged skyscrapers
Capital of finance and business
With a futuristic skyline, 19th century neighbourhoods, skyscrapers and busy airports, Frankfurt stands as a major financial hub in Germany, displaying diversity, contrasts and surprises at every corner. One of the world's most livable city, with several museums and very important fairs, many parks and green areas, this city is not the first option for travelers when in Germany, but it is for sure a good destination.
Of the historic attractions, you should visit the Romerberg, the old centre of the city. Romer is a square surrounded by lovely historic buildings, and there you can visit a 12th century church, the Alte Nikolaikirche, or even have a coffee in the several restaurants and coffee shops in the area. Dom, a 14th century Gothic cathedral, is the main cathedral in the city, and was the place where, for centuries, the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire were crowned.
Many museums in the city are clustered in a district called Museumsufer, and its ticket is valid for all municipal museums for two days. There you can visit the German Architecture Museum, the German Film Museum, the Museum of Regional Historic Art and Culture, the Museum of World Cultures, the Jewish Museum and many many others.
Remember to have a walk along the river Main, where a lot of locals spend some time relaxing, playing frisbee or football. You can have a view if the city from Maintower, one of the skyscrapers that is open to visitors. Have also a walk in the City Forest, the largest inner city forest in Germany, and a big attraction in Frankfurt.
With many things to do and see, this city is all but boring. Visiting Frankfurt may not be your main goal in Germany, but give it a try and you won't regret, it's great!
