Frankfurt, for centuries now, has been an enduring commerce hub for Germany. The word enduring has been used because while Frankfurt has seen prosperous times, it has also been the scene for extreme devastation. Yet, Frankfurt has bounced back to become an international Finance center and home to one of the busiest airports in Europe. However, this city is not just about banking and commerce, it has a beautiful quiet quaint side that you must explore and enjoy.
The first area that you should explore is the old town of Frankfurt - Sachsenhausen. Lose yourself in the narrow cobbled streets of Sachsenhausen with its traditional houses and cozy cafes. After spending a few hours exploring the old town, cross the Iron bridge, also called Eiserner Steg, into the main city. This bridge has been built twice in the past and is famous for the hundreds of love padlocks hanging from the bridge. From the bridge, travel onward to Romerberg, a pretty-as-a-picture medieval square which exudes an old world charm and overflows with restaurants and shops. For centuries this square has seen good days when it was the site for coronations and tournaments and bad days when it was ravaged by firestorms. After further devastation in world war-II, the buildings were lovingly restored to their former glory. No matter Which direction you take in this part of town, you will be met with beautiful buildings like the town hall, spire of Old St. Nicholas Church and rows of iconic half-timbered houses. A landmark close to this area is the Frankfurt Cathedral. This 13th century red sandstone building was built in Romanesque style with a tall Gothic tower visible from kilometres away. Spend an hour or two here taking in the beauty of the old cathedral. At a 10 minute walk from the Cathedral is the famous Goethe Haus. This building is the birthplace of the famous German poet and novelist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The house is decorated with period furniture and paintings, it provides an authentic environment in which Goethe spent his youth. It is also a place where Goethe wrote his famous works Götz von Berlichingen, Faust and The Sorrows of Young Werther.
Tourists who love art can spend happy hours wandering the halls and exhibits at Frankfurt’s popular art museums - Stadel Museum, Liebieghaus and Schirn Kunsthalle. Another popular museum is the Deutsches Architekturmuseum or the German Architecture Museum.
If you want to see a more urban part of Frankfurt, then you must head to Ander Hauptwache. This area is full of shops, glass skyscrapers, modern buildings and is popular for its nightlife. Take a break from all the tiring sightseeing at the beautiful Palmengarten (Frankfurt’s Botanical Gardens) or at Mainkai street.
