Frankfurt

Filled with shiny glass and steel skyscrapers, Frankfurt am Main is often called Mainhattan by locals due to its spiky skyline and urban edge.

Continental Europe’s main financial centre has an international reputation for being rather faceless, but under the surface Frankfurt remains an ancient, cultured place dating back to Roman times. Among the 40 odd museums that line its riverside, the 200 year old Städel is one of Germany’s top four old master collections, while the city’s small old town gives Frankfurt a convincingly antique core despite only being fully reconstructed in the 1980s. Beyond the city centre’s glitter, the lanes of the Sachsenhausen area are full of old pubs serving apfelwein (local cider), while the gritty Ostend Docklands have some of Germany’s best nightlife after Berlin. Frankfurt’s hinterland is worth exploring too. The forested Taunus Mountains, a favourite location for bankers’ villas, have views across the city, while the nearby spa town of Wiesbaden has kept its pre-war elegance.

Festive fun in Frankfurt.

Festive fun in Frankfurt

The traditional Christmas markets of Frankfurt provide a charming contrast to its striking, modern cityscape. Treat yourself to a magical break, as over 600 years of history lives on in one of the oldest German markets. Take in the beautifully decorated stalls as you soak up the festive atmosphere and wonderful aroma of baked apples, roasted nuts, gingerbread and local glühwein. 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 trumpet fanfares from the balcony of St Nicholas’s church. Stay at the nearby Le Meridien Parkhotel Frankfurt to enjoy the market in style.
