SIGHTS AND CULTURE IN THE MAJOR CITY OF FRANKFURT

Frankfurt is primarily known as a centre for business and banking, but it also has a great deal of cultural and historical sights to offer. Start by visiting Römerberg (Roman Mountain), the beautiful market square in the heart of Frankfurt, which is surrounded by historical buildings, the Historical Museum, the Old St Nicholas Church and half-timbered buildings. A stop at the gorgeous city hall – the "Römer" – is an absolute must.Make your way from Römerberg across the Eisernen Steg – a pedestrian bridge that provides an excellent view of the water and Frankfurt's skyline – to the Museum embankment on the opposite side. Frankfurt’s Museum embankment is one of the most important museum locations in Germany and in Europe. It boasts a diverse offers, from architecture to film and painting. Frankfurt's nearly 60 museums offer a diverse cultural programme to all visitors.

For an arty evening, the Alte Oper (Old Opera), the Oper Frankfurt opera house, the Schauspiel Frankfurt theatre and the Papageno musical theatre feature a variety of performances. The event venues at Festhalle and Jahrhunderthalle regularly host international artists.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION

Treat yourself to a relaxing getaway in the great outdoors during your stay in Neu-Isenburg. Enjoy an outing to the Frankfurt City Forest, located just 3 km from the hotel.Jog, cycle, hike or just talk a walk across the forest. A total of seven ‘Waldspielparks’ - playgrounds in the forest -  provide opportunities for outdoor sports and fun activities for children. In addition to the numerous parks and green areas in Frankfurt, the Rhine-Main region features the rivers Rhine and Main and is bordered by the Taunus, Vogelsberg, Spessart, Odenwald and Hunsrück low mountain ranges. If you are looking for a natural oasis in Frankfurt's city centre, you will be overshelmed by the Palm Garden – one of the largest botanical gardens in Germany.

CUISINE

Have you ever tried the famous Grie Soß (green sauce), Goethe’s favourite dish? Are you already familiar with Handkäs mit Musik ("Hand cheese with music")? Frankfurt's cuisine includes a few specialities that, at first glance, might seem a bit strange to non-Hessen natives. But they are well worth a try. Hop through the Apfelwein (cider) pubs in the Sachsenhausen district and eat your way through Frankfurt’s culinary tradition – which of course also includes the popular Ebbelwoi cider. Whether pure or mixed with sparkling water, Ebbelwoi is a must!

The most famous street with numerous restaurants and delicatessens is the road section between Opernplatz and Börsenstraße, which is affectionately known as Fressgass' (grub lane) by locals. Each year in May, the Fressgass' Fest food festival takes place, followed by the Rheingau Wine Market in August. Both events are among the most popular festivals in Frankfurt.

A visit to the Kleinmarkthalle is also a treat. On weekdays and Saturdays, a market takes place on over 1,500 m2, where you can taste and be inspired by a wealth of regional specialities and fresh produce.
