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. For example, you can start by visiting Römerberg, the beautiful marketplace at the heart of Frankfurt, which is surrounded by historical architecture, 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. From Römerberg you can make your way across the Eisernen Steg – a pedestrian bridge that provides an excellent view of the water and the Frankfurt skyline – to the Museum embankment on the opposite side. Frankfurt’s Museum embankment is one of the most important locations for museums in Germany and the whole of Europe. It boasts a diverse range of offerings covering architecture, film and painting. With nearly 60 museums, visitors have access to an incredibly diverse cultural programme.

For an arty evening, the Old Opera House, Oper Frankfurt, Schauspiel Frankfurt and the Papageno Musiktheater feature a variety of performances. The Festhalle and Jahrhunderthalle regularly host international artists.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION

Treat yourself to a restful 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. Here you can jog, ride your bike, hike or take a relaxing walk along the extensive trails. A total of seven ‘Waldspielparks’, forest recreational areas, provide opportunities for outdoor sports and fun kids’ activities. In addition to the numerous parks and green areas in Frankfurt, the Rhine-Main region features the Rhine and Main rivers, and is bordered by the Taunus, Vogelsberg, Spessart, Odenwald and Hunsrück low mountain ranges. If you’re looking for a natural oasis in the centre of Frankfurt, you can get lost in 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? And are you already familiar with ‘Handkäs mit Musik’? Frankfurt cuisine covers a few specialities that might seem a bit strange to non-Hessen natives at first glance. But they’re 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 section of road between Opernplatz and Börsenstrasse, which is affectionately known as Fressgass (food road) by locals. Each year in May, Frankfurters celebrate the Fressgass’ Fest here, while August brings the Rheingau Wine Market. 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 across 1,500 m2, where you can taste and be inspired by a wealth of regional specialities and fresh produce.
