Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The fifth-largest city in Germany, Frankfurt am Main has a population of just under 750,000 people, although over 2 million people live within the urban area. A high-powered finance and business hub, the city literally glints with a mixture of glass, concrete and steel skyscrapers.
It is home to one of the largest stock exchanges in the world, together with the new headquarters of the European Central Bank. It also plays host to some of the world’s most important trade fairs so, as you can imagine, it’s a mecca for business people from around the globe.
However, far from being a faceless business city, Frankfurt also has a traditional and charming side to explore. There’s still plenty of half-timbered buildings in the Altstadt, and you’ll find plenty of outdoor cafes to whittle away your time.
Plus, there’s a fantastic selection of museums, beautiful parks and gardens, tranquil river paths, and some very good shopping. Add to this a lively and vibrant nightlife and it’s got everything that a modern city could need.
Not only is Frankfurt Airport the third largest in Europe, but it’s also the region’s biggest employer. Each year, over 57 million passengers make their way through the airport on route to the city.

You won’t miss the city’s most iconic modern structure, Main Tower and the 200-metre-high observation platform is a great place to take in a bird’s eye view of the city. There’s no need to climb any steps, as the lift will whisk you up there in just 45 seconds.
Amongst all the tower blocks you’ll find the 95-metre-high Gothic tower of Frankfurt’s red-sandstone cathedral. Work began on the Kaiserdom in the 13th century, although it’s been re-built twice since – once after a fire in 1867 and after the bombings of 1944 left it completely burnt out.
To get a feel of the old Frankfurt, head to Römerberg, the city’s old central square and you’ll be treated to typical half-timbered buildings which, though they were reconstructed following the Second World War, will give you a good idea of how the medieval city looked prior to its destruction.
It’s also home to Frankfurt’s famous Christmas Market in December, and the very photogenic Römer or old town hall. Consisting of three gabled houses from the 15th century, the town hall is now the office of the mayor of Frankfurt and you can even get married there.
You’ll also find an excellent selection of museums in Frankfurt, including the Städel Museum, a world-renowned art gallery with a wonderful collection of European art. In here you’ll find work from masters such as Rubens, Renoir, Picasso, Cézanne and Rembrandt together with more contemporary works from Francis Bacon.
Frankfurt’s Natural History Museum, Senckenberg, is well worth a visit if only to see the life-size parade of dinosaurs that guard the front. Inside you’ll discover a wide range of exhibits and, if you’re from one of the cities joined with Frankfurt, you’ll get free entry.
Other places of interest include the IG-Farbenhaus. Built in 1931, the building was taken over by the Nazis during WWII to produce Zyklon-B, which was used to kill the Jews in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. The Jewish Cemetery is also worth a visit as a reminder of the Holocaust. And don’t forget the Stock Exchange Building. Built in 1843, it’s impressive to say the least.
