"Mainhattan," Germany's glitzy financial heart on the River Main
The birthplace of German democracy, Frankfurt is now more famous for its bankers, and the skyscrapers they have funded. A hub from the very beginning (the name comes from a river ford used by the Franks who went on to conquer France), Frankfurt's airport offers flights to more destinations than any other, and you can seemingly take trains anywhere from here, too. This is one of Germany's most diverse cities, even when its famous trade shows aren't in town, yet next to the skyscrapers you'll find the restored old town that served as the brief capital of a democratic Germany during the failed 1848 revolutions, and remains a reminder of Frankfurt's time as one of the Holy Roman Empire's prime cities.
Route for Frankfurt tour
Head beyond the glitz, and you'll find beautiful, well-preserved 19th century neighborhoods, and even a district with traditional half-timber homes. The recent (2012-2018) New Frankfurt Old Town reconstruction delivers on a lot of people's preconceptions of Germany. Travel further still, and you'll find beautiful hills, and the storied Rhine. Hop aboard a train, and within an hour you can be in Gutenberg's well-preserved hometown of Mainz, the spa city and state capital of Wiesbaden, the Taunus Mountains, storied Heidelberg, and Cologne, with its epic cathedral.

Things to do in Frankfurt

As a predominately modern Western city, the most interesting things to do when in Frankfurt tend to be outside the city limits, save for taking a walking tour of the old town, which is our main recommendation for your time here, which will usually be for one or two nights at the start or end of a trip.
