Known all over the globe for its striking skyline, international and financial significance and love for trade shows and fairs, Frankfurt has so much to offer as a city break destination. The financial and business capital of, not only Germany, but the whole of Continental Europe, this cosmopolitan city is a popular choice for congress meetings and conferences with many international organisations. As a long-standing symbol of the city, the German Stock Exchange, first opened in 1585, has since provided a highly popular attraction for visitors and residents alike, who come to see up-close the iconic building and the mechanics of modern day trading. Other noteworthy buildings in the city include the Central Bank of Germany, the European Central Bank and the Messe exhibition centre, all of which contribute to the distinct shape cut out in the sky with their soaring, modern constructions.

As well as a city driven by work and power, Frankfurt has also retained an essence of Old Europe and enjoys the comforts and curiosities of its long and complex history and culture. Römer Square in the city centre is enclosed by a series of delightful, historic buildings dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries, and the neighbourhoods of Nordend, Bockenheim, Bornheim and Sachsenhausen are filled with beautifully kept 19th century streets and green parks and gardens. Culture lovers may be surprised to discover the existence of such a wide variety and number of museums, galleries and theatres which showcase work from both world-famous artists and performers as well as members of the up-and-coming contemporary culture scene. The internationally-renowned opera house is core to Frankfurt’s identity and housed in one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, on the edge of a charming square with bubbling fountains and open-air cafes.
Wining and dining are two very good reasons to visit Frankfurt, with its wide selection of local cuisine including the city’s signature dish, Handkäs mit Musik, meaning ‘Cheese with Music’, and an abundance of wine and cocktail bars and traditional beer gardens. During the summer months there are a series of festivals celebrating the local cuisine, such as the Fressgass Fest which sees a mass of pop-up food and beer stalls and live music events take to the streets with a party atmosphere.
