Teach, Learn, Share

What to do in Frankfurt?
Well some people might say it is possible to gain within one day a general understanding of the city and its sightseeing spots. However others enjoy here a far longer time, a brief introduction:

Old historical town (including “Römer-berg”, “Paulskirche”, “Kaiserdom”, “Eiserner Steg”, “Historical Museum”, “Saalgasse”)

Frankfurt is rich of museums, such as:

- GoetheMuseum

- Städel (paintings)

- Schirn or MMK (both modern art)

- 2 x Jewish Museum

- DialogMuseum (reservation required)

Senckenberg (Natural museum)

 => => Plz note special offer the MuseumsuferCard which gives you entrance in up to 34 museums 2 days long for 18 EUR

Further places of interest:

- Maintower => this skyscraper offers a public viewing platform on the roof top (6,50 EUR)

- Stock market (please note you will need to make reservation one day in advance)

- Palmengarten, comfortable in winter cause of the heated up glas houses, pretty in summer due to the growing flowers outside

Frankfurt is a great place for shopping, from the big shopping street “Zeil” up to the more luxurious shoppging street “Goethestrasse” there are options for all tastes and wallets.

Sightseeing tours:
By walking with tourguide, or individual by sightseeing bus hopp on hopp off, or taking a boat trip up and down the main river

And don’t miss the Frankfurter nightlife, from alternative to high class, from small bars up to 5 floors discos, After work parties, Live music venues, Salsa dancing and special theme parties like Bollywood or K-Pop….

Or relax at one of the parks:

- Along the Main river

- The green belt (surrounding the city center)

- Grüneburgpark (with a small Korean Garden)

- Bethmannpark (with small Chinese Garden)

Frankfurt has also Germanys biggest exhibition center, hosting the world wide number one book fair and europes biggest car show as well as a number of further exhibitions, check the calender at “Frankfurter Messe”

And in Frankfurt are throughout the year a number of special events, full of attractions, shows and live music

Check what is playing:

- “Alte Oper” + “Oper Frankfurter” (both opera houses)

- The English Theatre

Or watch a live game of the local team:

- Eintracht Frankfurt (soccer, first German league)

- Fraport Skyliners (Basketball, first German league)

Besides the city center, there are further districts of Frankfurt easy to reach and worth to see, such as:

- Alt Sachsenhausen, known for a number of traditional German Restaurants as well as nightlife area packed of Frankfurter Apple wine Pubs

- Frankfurt-Höchst, has also an old historical town and there is the second oldest porcelain manufacturing of Germany

- Sachsenhausen, going up the little hill of Frankfurt, you will reach at the top of the Frankfurter forest the 43 meters high wooden Goetheturm tower, which provides a free view over the whole city

And if you have covered Frankfurt itself you can go for day trips of places close by, examples:

- Heidelberg (lovely city), by bus 1 hour one way / 10 EUR round trip
