Frankfurt am Main Information
About Frankfurt am Main
Frankfurt am Main is a bustling German city situated in the federal state of Hesse. Arguably the most prominent financial hub in Europe, Frankfurt is home to the headquarters of the European Central Bank, German Federal Bank, and one of the world’s most active and important stock exchanges. Although adorned by sleek skyscrapers and modern structures, Frankfurt also proudly displays its historical roots by preserving portions of its older, less modern neighborhoods and streets.
Things to do in Frankfurt am Main
Frankfurt is known for its lively downtown financial center replete with lofty glass and concrete buildings such as Eurotower and Commerzbank Tower, Europe’s second tallest high-rise. Conversely, Frankfurt also boasts a city district called Altstadt which means “old town.” Altstadt is Frankfurt’s historical center that dates back to the late 700’s. Lined with timber-framed edifices inspired by the architectural style of the Middle Ages, Altstadt arouses a sense of wonder and awe amongst its visitors.
Frankfurt features numerous significant religious landmarks such as the Frankfurt Cathedral, Saint Paul’s Church, and Holy Cross Church. Other notable attractions in Frankfurt consist of Palmengarten, Germany’s largest botanical garden; Zeil, a pedestrian-only shopping street; and an abundance of cultural institutions like the German Architecture Museum called Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the country’s leading opera company Oper Frankfurt.
Day trips from Frankfurt am Main
About half an hour’s drive westward of Frankfurt is Wiesbaden, the capital of Hesse. Wiesbaden is renowned in Europe as a spa town because of its many hot springs. A popular spot in Wiesbaden is the Schloßplatz which means “palace square.” The square has the magnificent Wiesbaden City Palace and parliamentary building Landtag of Hesse. Wiesbaden also boasts multiple architectural marvels built in the neoclassical and baroque styles.
Located eastward from Frankfurt in just under a half an hour’s drive is the historic city of Offenbach am Main. The city survived bombings from Allied Forces during World War II. Distinguished points of interest in Offenbach are the Offenbach Design University, German Leather Museum, and Klingspor Museum which displays calligraphy and typography. Also, since over half of the city’s population is constituted by non-German inhabitants including Turks, Arabs, Greeks, Poles, and Italians, Offenbach has a deliciously diverse culinary scene.
