The city of Frankfurt am Main is the fifth-largest city in Germany. Most people mainly know Frankfurt as the financial heart of Germany. The German stock exchange is located in the center of Frankfurt, as are the Deutsche Bundesbank and headquarters of several major banks. The European Central Bank is also located in Frankfurt, which means that the city is in fact the financial heart of Europe. Frankfurt's businesslike character is reflected in the city's appearance, with skyscrapers dominating the Frankfurt skyline. It is not for nothing that Frankfurt am Main is also called the 'Mainhatten'. This name refers to the River Main and the skyscraper island of Manhattan in New York.
In addition to being an important business city, Frankfurt is also a place where many national and international trade fairs are organized. Messe Frankfurt is the place where about fifty trade fairs are held annually, with a total turnover of no less than 450 million euros on an annual basis. A well-known fair is the annual Frankfurter Buchmesse (the largest book fair in the world). No wonder Frankfurt has a high number of business people traveling to the city. This makes that there is a wide offer of business class tickets to Frankfurt.
Frankfurt Airport is located 12 km southwest of the city. Travelers can use the excellent public transport system to the various districts of the city. The best option is the S-Bahn, the express tram. In 14 minutes you are at Frankfurt Central Station. Buy a ticket from the ticket machines in the station before boarding the train. You can also take a taxi at both terminals. Depending on the traffic, you will be in the center in 20 to 30 minutes. Passengers flying in first class will have the luxury of a private shuttle service.
Transportation in Frankfurt
The most efficient means of public transport in Frankfurt is the U-Bahn, for which you can buy a single ticket or a day or week ticket. Ticket prices vary by zone and distance traveled. If you want to visit interesting places, you can also buy a Frankfurt Card. With this, you benefit from unlimited transport and discounts on entrance fees for city museums, restaurants, and shows. A day ticket costs €9.90.
Since the Middle Ages, the Römerberg has been the main square of Frankfurt. Today, this square, located in the Altstadt, is still an important landmark. The half-timbered houses are on Haus Wertheim after reconstructions of the old half-timbered houses that, like so many buildings in Frankfurt, were destroyed during the Second World War. The Germans have succeeded in perfectly reconstructing the atmosphere of an authentic medieval square. The central building on the square is the Römer, the city hall of Frankfurt. You will also find the Alte Nikolaikirche, the Historical Museum and the Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen here. Close to the square are two more historic buildings: Frankfurt Cathedral and St. Paul's Church.
Three excellent options are offered to enjoy a beautiful view of Frankfurt, one of which is free. You can climb the tower of the Frankfurt Cathedral via more than three hundred steps, after which you have a reasonable view over the old town. The free option is to go to the top floor via the Zeilgalerie indoor shopping center or Kaufhof department store. This offers you a nice view over the modern part of the center of Frankfurt. The best view is from the panoramic roof of the Main Tower, Frankfurt's second tallest skyscraper. The elevator takes you to the 54th floor in no time, after which you can admire all of Frankfurt and the surrounding area from the roof terrace.
Frankfurt am Main has more than thirty museums. The Goethe Museum, the Historical Museum Frankfurt, the Caricature Museum and the Museum of Modern Art are some of Frankfurt's top museums that are directly or indirectly related to the city. Another museum that is really worth a visit is the Naturmuseum Senckenberg. This is the largest natural history museum in Germany.
Among the many new buildings in Frankfurt stands the striking concert hall Alte Oper (Old Opera). The building, which was originally built in 1880, no longer serves as an opera house, where concerts and plays are held. For operas you have to go to the Opern- und Schauspielhaus Frankfurt. This building has been home to the Oper Frankfurt since 1951.
We recommend Restaurant Druckwasserwerk for an elegant business lunch. The building, which previously housed the water company, has been transformed into a cozy restaurant overlooking the banks of the River Main. The innovative dishes make a working lunch just that little bit more exciting.
