Frankfurt for Fun
Did you know that Frankfurt is the only city in Germany that has big skyscrapers?
Frankfurt's architecture and unique skyline display the city’s old restored buildings, blending beautifully with a significant number of skyscrapers. This is an unusual sight in a European city and Frankfurt is actually home to 14 out of Germany’s 15 skyscrapers. There's some knowledge for ya!
Museums and history
Frankfurt has more than 30 museums of great variety. We especially recommend Liegieghaus, the Museum of Modern Art and Städel, one of the most famous art museums in Germany. Frankfurt is also the birthplace of Johann Wolfgang Goethe so a visit to Goethe-Haus is also in order.
The historic heart of Frankfurt, known as Römerberg, is the center of the city‘s old town. Here you’ll find beautifully restored medieval buildings and the city hall, aka Römer, standing by the historic Paulsplatz square. Close by is the famous Cathedral of St. Bartholomew where you can climb up to the tower for a great view of the city.
If you’re planning on shopping during your vacation in Frankfurt you should head to Zeil, Frankfurt’s central shopping street. The pedestrian-only street, bordered by two large public squares is home to the main shopping chains of the world. For smaller shops and a quieter shopping experience head to Berger Strasse, Frankfurt’s longest shopping street. Food lovers should look for Fressgass (also known as Kalbächer Gasse) a pedestrian street in the city center but also Kaiserstrasse and the bustling food market at Kleinmarkthalle where you can find regional delicacies like the famous “green sauce”.
Get out of town
Close to Frankfurt is Trier, possibly the oldest city in Germany. Trier lies in a valley between low vine-covered hills of red sandstone on the banks of the Mosel River. From Trier, you can drive around the famous Moselle wine region. Moselle is one of Germany’s 13 wine regions and the best known internationally, producing quality wines mostly from Riesling grapes. Wine enthusiasts should not miss the chance to taste Moselle wines in their natural environment. A visit to Trier and the Moselle wine region is perfect for a day trip (or more) out of Frankfurt.
Frankfurt has it all
WOW air flies to Frankfurt all year round. The city's central location within Germany and Europe makes it a major transport hub and Frankfurt Airport (FRA), one of the world‘s busiest international airports, has connections to virtually all corners of the world.
