Frankfurt (Main) in Germany is rather known for being a business metropolis. High-rising skyscrapers and modern architecture by the river Main is the image you most likely have of the city. However, we found Frankfurt (Main) also to be quite attractive for touristic purposes. Especially the historical old town makes Frankfurt (Main) worth visiting. Here are our top things to do and see in Frankfurt (Main)!
Central Station Frankfurt (Main) is not only one of the most important train stations of Germany with almost half a million passengers in a year.
But also a real architectural highlight dating back to 1888!
If you are searching for a real gem in Frankfurt (Main), it’s Old Town is the place to go!
During WWII, some of its core got destroyed heavily, but got restored.
Römerberg is the center of the old town in front of the town hall since the Medieval Ages.
Due to a great atmosphere, it is a popular tourist attraction as well as being used for events like Christmas Markets!
St. Paul’s Church in Frankfurt (Main) is not a usual church like any other.
St. Paul’s Church covers rather a very high political symbolism as the first freely-elected German legislative was chosen there in 1849.
To be honest, this is not an official name of any street in Frankfurt (Main).
However, there is a street where many museums are located right next to each other. So if you consider visiting a museum, this is the perfect spot to decide spontaneously!
If you are interested in botanic, the Palm Garden Frankfurt (Main) is the ideal location to pay a visit.
Even though there is an entrance fee, a wide range of plants from all over the world may make up for that.
Institutions of the European Union are always a point of interest, at least for me.
So why not catching a glance at the skyscraper in which the European Central Bank is home?
“Eiserner Steg” is one of many bridges which lead across the river Main, yet it is a special one as this one is just for pedestrians.
Not to forget about its impressive and massive appearance!
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe set milestones when it comes to literature. So if you are interested in him or in his work, the Goethe House may be of interest for you. However, this yellow house in which he was born seems to be nondescript. If you walk by, be sure to take a picture of it!
