Best of Frankfurt, Germany | Private jet charter
Frankfurt is one of Germany’s most important financial and economic centres. Located in the centre of Germany on the river Main, Frankfurt offers visitors more than 60 museums to visit, as well as a vibrant bar and restaurant scene. Here are eight of Frankfurt’s great attractions.
At 200m high, Main Tower offers visitors panoramic views over the Altstadt and the Main from its observation deck. Go late and see Frankfurt illuminated after dark. Designed by notable architects Schweger und Meyer, the lift to the viewing deck takes just 45 seconds.
Frankfurt Cathedral is an impressive city landmark, made of red sandstone and originally built in the 13th century in the Gothic style. If you’re feeling fit, climb up its 95m-high tower for superb views over the city.
Head to the Zeil shopping area and you’ll find a massive indoor market with 156 stalls selling quality veggies, meats, cheeses, fruit, bread and much more. This deli-market experience is popular with tourists as well as locals, since it sells a variety of Italian, Turkish and Spanish specialities, reflecting the multicultural nature of Frankfurt. Have a break from sightseeing and sample bratwurst, tapas, panini and oysters at a bar above the main hall.
Frankfurt Old Town – Römerberg
A visual record of Frankfurt’s medieval past, Römerberg is home to cobblestone streets and timber buildings. This popular district between medieval Römer and Cathedral Square certainly has charm. Frankfurt’s historic city hall is here, as well as the 15th-century Old St Nicholas Church. Stop for a fine German beer and pretzels at one of the terrace restaurants.
If the city’s buzz gets too much and you’re yearning for tranquillity, head to the expansive green lawns of Frankfurt’s Grüneburgpark. This 30-hectare park was landscaped in an English style in 1877 on land that once belonged to the Rothschilds. Grüneburgpark is located between the famous Palmengarten and Goethe University.
Lovers of hothouses and botanical plants and trees will want to linger long at Frankfurt’s Palmengarten. Created in 1871, the gardens also include beautiful rose plantings as well as a rock garden and bamboo grove. Children are well catered for with playgrounds and a mini-gauge train. There’s also a pond with boat hire from May to September. In summer Palmengarten plays host to many open-air concerts.
An iconic art gallery, the Stadel Museum boasts a world-class collection of European art including work by Picasso, Cézanne, Dürer, Rembrandt and many more. Contemporary artists such as Francis Bacon and Gerhard Richter are featured in a below-ground gallery.
This group of 12 museums is located mainly on the south side of the river Main and dedicated to art, film, architecture, communication and more. On the last weekend of August the city’s Museumsuferfest is a fantastic cultural event on the embankment, offering later opening hours, outdoor music and dance, and even a dragon boat regatta on the river.
