Frankfurt is one Germany’s most important cities and a major conference and business centre. But although Frankfurt hotels are generally business-oriented, staff can always point visitors to major sightseeing attractions in the city.
If you’re staying in a city centre hotel in Frankfurt, it’s easy for you to visit the beautiful medieval Römer, the former city hall. For a complete contrast, head to the Main Tower skyscraper where, if you have a head for heights, you can climb 56 floors for spectacular views of the cityscape. Culture vultures will want to visit Goethehaus Frankfurt, the former home of Germany’s national poet, which has retained its 18th-century furnishings in marvellous baroque style.
Across the Iron Bridge on the south side of Frankfurt is Sachsenhausen, the city’s medieval Old Town where a favourite activity is to drink traditional apple wine at one of the many old-fashioned cafes. Here is where budget travellers will find a relaxing time and a great array of attractions conveniently near our affordable accommodation.
Frankfurt has numerous churches spanning centuries and architectural styles, from the Romanesque to the baroque, as well as the remains of a former Jewish ghetto with an informative museum. Whichever Frankfurt hotel you stay in, you’re never far from a place of interest.
