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.

Der Eiserne Steg
How do pedestrians from the Frankfurt Old Town, the Römerberg, get across the Main to the opposite neighbourhood of Sachsenhausen? Of course, via the Eiserne Steg. Luckily, this important connection has been free-of-charge since 1886. Before it became municipal property, people had to pay for using it. The Eiserne Steg is a neo-Gothic, 170 metres-long pedestrian bridge, the architectural counter piece of the Holbeinsteg. Because of its location, and its characteristic silhouette, the Eiserne Steg has become a beautiful landmark of Frankfurt. From the bridge you also have a great of of the Frankfurt skyline and the Museumsufer. Tip: Every two weeks, directly at the Main shore, at the southern end of the Eiserne Steg, the well-known Frankfurt flea market takes place. You can find things that you definitely won't find anywhere else, and that you didn't even think you would ever need.
