Frankfurt, located on the Main River, is the financial and business capital of Germany. As one of the only European cities with skyscrapers, it definitely gives you more of an urban feel. The contrast between the shiny, giant, glass skyscrapers next to the "Alte Oper" and St. Bartholomeus' Cathedral is extraordinary. Ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world, Frankfurt does not make you feel like a tourist, even if you are one. Visiting is like living: it is not the sites but the experience which remains with you. Having said that, there are some specialities which are not to be missed: Apple Wine (like cider, but not sparkling) and of course Frankfurter Sausages are a must on a trip to Frankfurt. When you fly with Austrian Airlines to Frankfurt, you can experience Germany at its finest: a thriving, but also traditional folk in a modern society.

Germany has many amazing Cathedrals, one of these is the Dom (Saint Bartholomeus' Cathedral) where German Emperors were crowned. If you're looking for a good district for old pubs and museums Sachsenhausen ist the best solution. During the day it is recommended to walk along the river Main, an ancient treasure you will never forget. After a day in the city you can return to your hotel for some rest before going for another fresh experience.
