Frankfurt may not be one of Germany’s biggest cities, but it’s definitely a giant when it comes to banking. Look deeper and you’ll find a study in contrasts: Shiny skyscrapers tower over medieval-style buildings and the stock exchange bustles around cozy cafes. Wotif’s flights to Frankfurt are just the beginning of uncovering all that this oft-overlooked German city has to offer.
Germany is the king of express trains, so it’s no surprise that getting to the city centre is a breeze after your flight to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) lands. Hop on the S-Bahn and you’ll be downtown before you can finish that marzipan pastry you bought. From there, the Metro can get you to the main attractions, and taxis are plentiful.
Early birds will have no trouble finding an open coffee shop. To recharge with a view, head to Romerplatz and sip your liquid caffeine in a medieval square.
If you’re a shopaholic, plan to arrive in the afternoon, drop your stuff at your Frankfurt accommodation and head straight to Hauptwache. Skipping the daylight altogether? Nighttime arrivals will have one of the best skyline views from the 200m Main Tower observation platform.
One of Germany’s most famous locals once wrote “I need to have coffee, coffee”. Bach can’t be wrong, so make like a Frankfurter (the Frankfurt resident, not a hot dog) with a kaffee on the southern banks of the Main River. For something stronger, you’ll fit right in with a stein of apfelwein cider. Want the complete beer tour? Book Berlin holiday packages and fly an hour north to sip crisp Berliner Weisse straight from the source.
