Flights to 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!

You'll realize that the Tiger Restaurant is something very special upon entering: The walls are decorated with posters from the world of performing artists, as well as relevant wall paintings. Delve into this world of high-flying dreams. The food in this international gourmet restaurant is just as great as the variety show in the house. Enjoy the light, French cooking that follows the seasons. Taste a shellfish cream soup with shrimp balls, peas and mint, after that a tranche of deer's back with celery nut crust and barberry sauce and as a dessert toffee brittle bar with compote and pear sorbet. This doesn't only sound delicious, it is, and it is confirmed by the star, which the international hotel and restaurant guide Michelin has been awarding since 1997. The menu is excellent, the wine selection, too, and the service team around the chef and sommelier Miguel Martin top class. Tip: Enjoy a menu in the Tiger Restaurant and a late show of the excellent artists and acrobats.

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.

Never before has eco fashion, also beyond the eco scene, been as hip as it is today. There are more and more shops that fit this category. Organicc is a special one among them: Owner Gerd Palmer only sells clothes and accessories that were produced under fair working conditions. Moreover, they should be made of organic or recycled materials. The cotton for the clothes is grown in an environmentally friendly way, and the switch to different cultivation methods is supported financially. Child labour or the exploitation of workers are a taboo. For Palmer, eco is not a hip trend that you can turn into gold, but an attitude towards life. Designers such as Katherine E Hamnett, Bono's label EDUN or Ivana Basilotta are part of the collection, as are shoes by Terra Plana!. The selection of wearable and modern street ware is great, and on top of that you'll get the feeling of having shopped responsibly for free.
