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

The Roman Forum
4.6/5
517 Reviews
Square
The Roman Forum is located in the center of Old Frankfurt. It is also the city of old city hall. The square was built in the Middle Ages and destroyed during WWII. After the war, it was almost completely reconstructed. Now it's the only Middle-Age style street left in Frankfurt and stands in stark contrast to the other modern buildings in the city. The Roman Forum is a can't-miss sightseeing destination. Nearly all of the top attractions in Frankfurt are nearby, including City Hall, the museum, the church, etc. For many travelers, the Roman Forum is a great place to come and learn about Frankfurt's culture.
Frankfurt Cathedral
4.6/5
345 Reviews
Church
Frankfurt Cathedral is located in the Roman Quarter, adjacent to the Roman Forum. It was once destroyed by a fire, and it is now in front of people. The towering curved dome in the church is majestic, and the four large pillars form the shape of a "crown" at the top. Although the large glass windows are not magnificently decorated, the good lighting makes the interior of the church more holy and bright.
Main
4.6/5
255 Reviews
River
The Main River is the mother river of Frankfurt, adding a tenderness to this modern metropolis, famous for its financial industry, exhibitions and transportation. On both sides of the river, you can walk and exercise. There are also open-air cafes on the river. There are various types of bridges on the river. The famous one is the Iron Bridge. This neo-Gothic pedestrian bridge, built in 1869, is on the Main River. Important landmarks.
Goethe House
4.5/5
324 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.
