Holidays in Frankfurt

With over 40 museums in town, Frankfurt city breaks are ideal for art lovers. From the Städel museum’s large old master collection to the tiny Museum of Applied Art, the city’s riverside is studded with galleries, complemented by the embankment’s Saturday flea market.

Elsewhere, Frankfurt’s mix of modern towers with an old town of slanting, half-timbered houses gives it one of Europe’s most striking cityscapes – only London comes close to its jarring contrasts. And while business powers Frankfurt, it doesn’t always dominate it. The intact late 19th century streets of the Nordend neighbourhood still have an alternative, bohemian feel despite gentrification, while the Ostend areas clubs show Frankfurt’s place at the centre of Germany’s electronic music scene.

Festive fun in Frankfurt

The traditional Christmas markets of Frankfurt provide a charming contrast to its striking, modern cityscape. If you visit between 25 November and 22 December you’ll be treated to a magical sight, as over 600 years of history lives on in one of the oldest German markets. Take in the sight of the beautifully decorated stalls as you soak up the festive atmosphere and wonderful aroma of baked apples, roasted nuts, gingerbread and mulled wine, known locally as gluhwein. The backdrop of the Römerberg market place and St Paul’s church create a wonderful setting, which is complimented by a 30-metre, illuminated Christmas tree and delightful trumpet fanfares from the balcony of old St Nicholas’s church.
