Frankfurt

Frankfurt

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. Your journey should not be a bank breaking affair. Stress doesn't make a good Holiday, but comfort does. Your flight will take you to the main airport that is 12 km (7.5 mi) from the city. Your first destination should be the Römerberg which is the old town centre of the city. Here you can see remains of old Roman settlements. 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. If you're looking for music and entertainment there is the Commerzbank-Arena, Balboa Event Location and the Jazzkeller. If you like castles there is Wartburg Castle where Martin Luther translated the Bible. Martin Luther was famous for disagreeing with the Catholic Church on indulgences. Luther then turned on the Pope and with his followers broke with the Catholic Church. This city is a timeless one. If you go here you will see how western civilization perfected the city-social-state and would go on to climb the skies of the future. If you come here you are very much a time traveller for this ancient city is very pristine from its historical beginnings to its modernist progression. Book flights to Frankfurt, FRA.

Palmengarten
Roses, stone, heath and rhododendron garden, long walking paths lined by tropical plants and then a romantic waterfall. If you need some downtime from the stress in the city, if you want to take a deep breath, and be one with nature, the Palmengarten (palm garden) is right for you. With 22 hectares this is the biggest palm garden in Germany, and if you manage to go with the calm flow, you'll feel like in paradise. Aside from beautifully designed walking paths, a boat rental at the pond as well as shady green areas with reclining chairs, the different exhibition spaces such as the palm house, the petal or the subantarctic house invite you to discover botanical diversity. With an entry-fee of only 5 euros for adults, the green oasis is a reasonably-priced option for relaxing and revitalizing in the middle of the city.

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.

MyZeil
The building itself is already worth a visit. The Italian star architect Massimiliano Fuksas set his hand to the design. His innovative plan looked as follows: he took the aerial image of a dried-out course of a river and used it as the basis for his groun d plan. In this way a building without any edges came into existence - round, curved and bent. Above a glass roof lies down like a rapid stream in waves.   And what's under the roof? On six floors there are jeans and casual wear by Guess, G-star, Hilfiger Denim, Replay and Pepe, as well as lace lingerie by Princess Tam Tam and Passionata, additionally there's functional clothing by The North Face and Columbia or surf clothing by Chiemsee or Quicksilver. A 47 metre long express escalator takes you directly to the culinary boulevard where various international cuisines are on the menu.
