Museum embankment and Städel
The Frankfurt museum embankment (Museumsufer) is one of the most important locations for museums in Germany and Europe. Through this unique cultural experience on both sides of the Main, the city enjoys an excellent reputation among art lovers. On the southern bank side alone, nine exhibition buildings are lined up one after the other.
The Städel museum nearby is one of Frankfurt’s top attractions. Admire art from the 14th century to the present day, including famous works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Dürer and Beckmann.
Book one of our special Cultural Weekend Packages and enjoy free museum entry.
The city’s glitziest shopping street lies between the Alte Oper and Rossmarkt. Find the best local German designers as well as famous labels including Prada, Hermes and Chanel.
Kleinmarkthalle - local city hall
Enjoy a glass of wine accompanied with oysters or tapas in this beautiful market hall filled with fruits, vegetables, chocolates, cheeses, breads, meats and fish from around the world (closed on Sundays).
Cathedral and St. Paul's Church
Strictly speaking, it is not a cathedral at all, since it was never a bishop’s church. Nonetheless, the Gothic St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral is one of the few to receive the designation “Imperial Cathedral” (Kaiserdom).
The Paulsplatz is dominated by the red sandstone St. Paul´s Church (Paulskirche). As the seat of the first German national assembly (1848/49), it is the symbol of German democracy. Commemorative plaques on its façade recall famous politicians and honorary citizens of the city; on its north side a monument reminds us of the victims of National Socialism.
