FRANKFURT

Frankfurt is the largest city in the German state of Hesse, and is considered is the business and financial centre of Germany. The city is known for its modern skyline. It has some of the highest, most avant-garde skyscrapers of Europe next to well maintained old buildings. The downtown area, especially Römer square and the museums at the River Main, draw millions of tourists every year. On the other hand, many off the beaten track neighbourhoods, such as Bockenheim, Bornheim, Nordend and Sachsenhausen, with their intact beautiful 19th century streets and parks are often overlooked by visitors.

Römerberg is the old centre of Frankfurt. It features various buildings and a church from the 14th and 15th century. The Römer itself is the town hall of Frankfurt. Next to the cathedral, at the Archäologische Garten, you can see the remains of the Roman settlements that gave this place its name. At the Römer, you can also visit the Alte Nikolaikirche. Walking towards the Main river, you can also see the Rententurm, an old 15th century fortified tower in late Gothic style, which is connected to the Saalhof, an old 12th century castle building that was later modernized but never completely destroyed.

Frankfurt has some of the tallest buildings in Europe, and the tallest in Germany. Its skyline is unique for the country as the high-rises are concentrated in a relatively small downtown area, giving Frankfurt the looks of a metropolis.

The Zeil is the main shopping street in Frankfurt and in fact one of the most frequented shopping streets in Europe. Head to the Goethestraße for upscale shopping.

There are of course restaurants all over Frankfurt. One notable area for dining may be what is locally known as the Fressgass (a literal translation would be "munching alley"). The correct name of this street is Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse. As the nickname implies, the Fressgass features many cafes, restaurant, and deli food stores. Typical specialities from the hessian region are "Handkäs mit Musik" - a cheese from curdled milk, the "Frankfurter Grüne Sauce" - 7-9 fresh herbs mixed - and at Christmas time the "Bethmännchen" formed from Marzipan and almonds. This is eaten together with Apfelwein.
