What to know about Frankfurt

Frankfurt is Germany's fifth-largest city and is most commonly renowned for its vibrant cultural scene. Conveniently, flights don't take all that long and you don’t have to worry about adjusting to time zones either. The time in Frankfurt is just one hour ahead of the UK, making it easy to adjust.

Whether for business or pleasure, there’s plenty for you to see and experience in this bustling city. The metropolis has a distinct cosmopolitan vibe but the streets are adorned with various galleries, museums and architectural beauties. On top of this, there are historical sites like the Senckenberg Natural History Museum and the iconic Goethe House, which was the former home of German author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

If you're exploring Frankfurt in the warmer months, you'll see the city's green and open parkland in all its glory. A must-see spot is Palmengarten, which boasts vast botanical gardens and is a great place to unwind.

However, if you're partial to sampling the local cuisine on your holidays abroad, you should head straight for Frankfurt's iconic Kleinmarkthalle. This covered market has been going for decades and now has over 150 independent stalls selling local cheeses and meats. One of the best dishes on offer is Fleischwurst, a tasty sausage in a roll topped with mustard or Frankfurt's renowned 'green sauce', made from sour cream, egg and seven herbs.

For the keen shoppers among you, it's worth noting that Frankfurt is the perfect location to shop 'til you drop. The Zeil is your go-to hub for mainstream retailers, while Bornheim's Berger Strasse is the ideal place if boutiques and indie stores are more in your bag.

Here is a tip for you: booking your flight and hotel at the same time and not separately can make you save up to 40%. Take advantage of a flight + hotel package in Frankfurt to your destination and save time searching for hotels separately. If you have already purchased your flight and you’re only looking for a hotel, you can find it here.

What to do in Frankfurt in 3 days

You might only be in town for a short business trip and if this is the case, you won’t be able to fully discover Frankfurt in 1 day, but you can certainly cram in a lot of must-see attractions. Alternatively, if you’re a Frankfurt first-timer and not sure about how to get the most from your trip in only a few days, you’re in luck. We’ve put together an itinerary for a long weekend break, which covers all the main attractions and experiences in the city. Feel free to take inspiration!

Day 1: Visit the Städel Museum and sample locally brewed cider

Day 2: Explore Frankfurt’s parks and Old Town before hitting Bornheim’s bars

In order to discover the beautiful landscapes of the surroundings, you can always rent a car in Frankfurt and travel the open road.
