About Frankfurt

Frankfurt am Main is the fifth-largest city in Germany. Germans sometimes refer to Frankfurt as "Mainhattan", a portmanteau of the local Main River and Manhattan. The banks of the Main River are, on one side, surrounded by a forest of skyscrapers and, on the other side, surrounded by the historical old town. There is a stark contrast between the two, yet also a sense of perfect harmony. Altstadt, the historical old town was more or less completely destroyed in World War II. However, it was rebuilt afterwards and has since been restored to it's former beauty. You can go to the Former Residence of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to explore the author's life. From the banks of the Main River, to the Eiserner Steg (the steel footbridge that crosses the Main), to the Museumsufer (the museum district), you will be able to feel and appreciate a rich cultural atmosphere. Frankfurt is Germany’s—and all of Europe's—most important financial center. The big blue Euro symbol at the entrance of the Eurotower and the bronze bull and bear figures at the door of the stock exchange are frequently seen in media reports on financial developments.

Popular Attractions in Frankfurt

Goethe House
4.5/5
318 Reviews
Famous Residences
The Goethe House was adjacent to the Goethe Museum. In 1749, the famous German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born here and spent his youth here. The former residence was as old as the German dwellings. It was not eye-catching. The building was almost completely destroyed during World War II. After the war, people restored the original appearance of the former residence. Precious furniture, artistic artifacts, valuable ornaments, books, portraits, and manuscripts that were carefully moved elsewhere during the war were all transferred back after the war, and they are now resting in a position that once belonged to them.
Iron Footbridge

233 Reviews

Located in Frankfurt, Germany, Iron Footbridge is a steel-framed footbridge that crosses the River Main and connects Frankfurt's south and north shores. This neo-Gothic-style iron bridge was built in 1869 and has been rebuilt many times until 1993. The guardrail on the bridge is covered with iron locks, and visitors come and hang their wishes here.
