Frankfurt: Where Green Meets Golf
Considered as the financial epicenter of Europe, Frankfurt is no stranger to international attention. Frankfurt is a city beaming with rich history and culture and with its distinct architecture hinting at both the past and the present, it’s no wonder it attracts millions of tourists every year. ‘Bankfurt’—as its known by many—is a centuries-old trading hub filled with thousands of fun things to do, places to see, and flavours to indulge.
Highlights include the Frankfurt Opera House, which is regarded as one of the best in all of Europe; the Kleinmarkthalle Market, where you can buy typical foods and products from the region; and the Goethe House, where the famous German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once lived.
Visit the historic city center, Altstadt, where the Frankfurt Cathedral is located and walk a short distance to the Kaufhof Gallery. The Gallery offers breathtaking views of the entire city from its rooftop terrace, a favourite amongst tourists and locals alike. Centrally situated within the city, the Gallery is only minutes from the Römerberg square where you can find picturesque medieval buildings and historic markets.
Don’t forget to take a minute to taste some of Frankfurt’s delicious foods and beverages: the Apfelwein —a sweet and refreshing wine made from apples—and the famous Frankfurt sausages are an absolute must during your stay in this German city.
