Best of Frankfurt

Business, trade fairs and shopping on the one hand, culture, cosiness and traditions on the other.

Programme suggestions

For a few hours or several days

For a short stay, a trip to the Main Tower to marvel at the impressive skyline is worthwhile, followed by a stroll through the historic old town and a visit to the famous Römerberg.

If you have a whole day at your disposal, don't miss a walk along the museum embankment, where the Städel Museum and the German Film Museum are lined up side by side. Complemented by a boat trip on the Main, you can experience Frankfurt from a unique perspective.
