Frankfurt's financial district's glitzy skyline will wow you. Look beyond its skyscrapers and you'll be surprised by Sachsenhausen's cosy wine taverns and the half-timbered house fronts of 16th-century Rmerberg Square. Come again for the wealth of museums lining Museumsufer (Museum Embankment) or the exclusive shops of fashion-minded Goethestrasse.
The River Main flows through Frankfurt from east to west. Just north of it, in the city's cobble-stoned historic centre, you'll find the red-brick Paulskirche church, where the foundations for German democracy were laid in 1848. The city-centre Goethe House, where Germany's number-one literary star was born is also worth a visit. Rest tired feet in small cafes where, in the 1960s, students fiercely debated revolutionary matters. The financial district sprawls westwards, while things get cosier south of the river, where the narrow streets of traditional Sachsenhausen nestle.
Start your day with a walk across Eiserner Steg Bridge for the best skyline views. The rattling Ebbelwei Express tram takes you past the towering Kaiserdom cathedral while you sip the local Ebbelwei apple wine. Marvel at the meticulously restored Patrician house fronts of Rmerberg Square, then take the lift to the 54th floor of the ultra-modern Main Tower. At night, choose between the hearty fare of Sachsenhausen's quaint taverns and the gourmet dishes served at the elegant restaurants near Frankfurt's grand Opera.
Visit Museumsufer embankment, where the German Film Museum leads the impressive line-up, or discover literary genius in the reconstructed rooms of Goethe House. Schirn Kunsthalle is Frankfurt's leading venue for innovative temporary exhibitions. The beautifully landscaped Grneburgpark is great for a relaxed stroll, while exotic plants grow in the palm-filled Palmengarten next door. Explore the restaurant-lined streets of bohemian Bornheim, or check out the experimental restaurants further afield, such as in industrial Fechenheim.
