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.

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.

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.

Bartholomäus Dom

If you want to see the top sights of the city, you won't get passed the cathedral. During the Middle Ages the Frankfurt Kaiserdom (Imperial Cathedral) was where German kings were elected, and later the crowning church of Holy Roman emperors. It evolved from the Salvatorkirche that was endowed by Ludwig II. in 852, and rebuilt in 1953 after severe damage had occurred during World War II. Today it harbours valuable altars and tombs of the late Gothic era. Of course, most of the time it's quite calm and contemplative here, however, different events, changing exhibitions and church services on Sundays bring life into the old walls. If you don't want to stay inside for too long, a visit will still be worth your time. You can climb the cathedral's tower and enjoy a beautiful view of the city. And the final surprise: Admission is free!
