The 5th largest city in Germany, Frankfurt (or Frankfurt am Main) is a centre for transport and manufacturing, and has played a major role in the history of the country. The city is filled with museums, monuments, theatres, hotels and shopping opportunities; and there are remnants of harsh bombing from World War II throughout the streets.
Today, the city is vibrant and modern, with historical sites alongside skyscrapers and bustling city centre. If you want to experience the city in full, the Main Tower is a 650 feet high building which has a platform open to tourists so you can see the views of the city.
Other highlights in Frankfurt include the Kaiserdom (Cathedral), Städel Institute of Art with the Municipal Gallery, the Römerberg which is the historic heart and home to City Hall, the Paulskirche which is the cradle of German democracy, and Goethe House – the birthplace of writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
