Frankfurt

Frankfurt
To most, Frankfurt is an airport, because here many flights connect from north to south, east to west and continent to continent. To other people it is the destination of business flights, because here the biggest banks in Germany have their headquarters, overshadowed by the European Central Bank. The biggest book fair in the world brings authors and publishers together every year, which is fitting for a city that was the birthplace of Germany’s most famous writer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. His birthplace is a famous tourist spot during the book fair and after.

The most beautiful and quaint place is the Römer, Frankfurt’s city hall, one of the most beautiful and oldest town halls in Germany. The Saint Bartholomew’s Imperial Cathedral was the coronation site of German emperors. On the other hand of history is the St. Paul’s Church, where the first German Parliament tried to establish Democracy in 1848. The Old Opera House is another highlight, situated directly across the modern central building of the Goethe University. In the evening, the small lanes of the Sachsenhausen quarter invite you for a taste of “Ebbelwoi“, the Frankfurt version of Cider. Frankfurt is also known as a centre of electronic dance music, so dance the night away to the sounds of famous DJs in the clubs of the city. Have fun in Frankfurt!

What to see in Frankfurt

What to see in Frankfurt
Der Goetheturm
Look up once with awe, tie your shoes, take a deep breath and go for it... 196 steps are ahead of you. But they are worth the effort! And then? Look down in awe, shake out your legs and take a deep breath...The 43 metre high Goethe Tower is the highest wooden tower in Germany. Its foundation is located 147 metres above sea level, 54 metres higher than the Main, and that's definitely impressive. The reward of the trip up: A beautiful view of the skyline, the Stadtwald forest, the entire Rhein-Main area, plus the feeling to be above all that. Afterwards the paths in the Stadtwald around the tower invite you for a stroll in the woods, and if you are here with kids, you'll have to make a stop at the Waldspielpark playground with its giant slide, paddling pools and adventurous rides.

Fleming's Deluxe
The Fleming's Deluxe Hotel offers pure luxury in the middle of Frankfurt city centre, just a few meters away from the stock exchange, the Alte Oper and the Zeil shopping street. The luxurious service attracts celebrities of all kinds: German Chancellor Angela Merkel and singer Anastacia were guests here - albeit not together.  The listed building was tastefully renovated. Expensive fabrics and exclusive materials in warm, earthen colours were stylishly combined with elements of modern elegance. The colours bordeaux and amber dominate the interior, creating a comfy atmosphere. Don't miss taking a ride with the paternoster. This rare type of lift takes you directly to the Fleming's Club on the seventh floor of the hotel. The view from up here is breathtaking, and is crowned by juicy grill and seafood specialities, light creations from the wok and one of the many top wines. By the way, the service personnel will polish your shoes, before the chauffeur invites you to a city tour. The price is equivalent to the luxury: Doubles start at 256,- euros a night.

Orfeo's Erben
When Orfeo's Erben (heirs) was opened in January 1999, as a successor of one of the most renowned art house cinemas in Germany, nobody had an idea that Andreas Lucas and Harry Dehnhardt had hit on an excellent concept: They made the Orfeo's into a unique, public cinema restaurant, which is unrivalled in Germany. Both sides of the business are a great deal. In the smallest THX cinema in Germany you see movies, trailers and the latest production of aspiring German film-makers. The open bar and restaurant area has also got many fans. Who's surprised? The atmosphere is great, and the food, too. Trade Fair visitors, neighbours, regulars, and movie lovers are repeat customers here. You find delicious international dishes on the menu: Crunchy salads with a sophisticated dressing, pasta, fish and meat. If you are lucky you get one of the sought-after tables next to the screening room - then you can enjoy your food with a good movie.
