Visit Frankfurt and do not miss anything

Things to see

Frankfurt is one of both Germany and Europe's main transport hubs. Its historical quarter was almost completely destroyed during WWII, and the post-war reconstruction virtually erased any Medieval vestiges from its streets. One of the few buildings that survived the bombings was the St. Bartholomew Cathedral, dating back to 825 AD and featuring a 95 m high tower. The cathedral can be visited from April to October.

Commerzbank Tower

This downtown skyscraper (259 m high) was the tallest building in Europe until it was surpassed by the Triumph Palace in Moscow. The building houses the offices of Commerzbank as well as lush winter gardens. If you are a fan of heights, you will enjoy the view from the Main Tower, open year round. The financial district is also home to other famous Frankfurt skyscrapers, such as the Eurotower, the Gallileo, and the Silberturm (Silver Tower).


Römerberg Square to their original Medieval style, showcasing their timber-framed façades. Here, in the heart of Berlin, the city's first market fairs were held back in the 13th Century, setting Frankfurt on its path of being one of the most important European cities for market merchants and visitors. There may very well be a fair going on during your visit (Book Fair, Car Fair, etc.). The Christmas Market held in the square in December is one of the most popular seasonal fairs in the country.
