Best things to do and see in Frankfurt

Frankfurt is one of the most important cities in Germany and is considered the financial capital of the European Union, housing the European Central Bank. It is located in the center of the country and its streets are bathed by the Main River. In fact, its name as such would be Frankfurt am Main in honor of the river that runs through the city, providing truly impressive landscapes. In addition, it has been the city that I have seen near the famous writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (one of the essential places to visit is precisely the Goethe House Museum). As happened in other German locations, World War II left its mark on the city, having to be rebuilt later. In the Altstadt (Old Town)
You can see the best example with the Römerberg square which is the place that hosts all Christmas markets.

If you want to make a route to visit the main places and points of interest in Frankfurt, you can take a look at the recorders that make the local guides under the free walking tour format. In addition to taking all the culture and history related to the monuments, buildings and streets that are recorded during the tour, they also give valuable advice on where to go, how to get around the city or what areas to visit beyond the historic center. As a starting point, you can start by visiting the town hall (Römer), a medieval building located in Altstadt, and then dropping by the botanical garden of Palmeras that has large greenhouses. In the most financial area is the Main Tower or the Main Tower, one of the skyscrapers of the city that offers panoramic views at 200 meters high, to go after the Gothic-style city cathedral (Collegiate Church of St. Bartholomew ) or at the most cultural level, Alte Oper is the opera that offers jazz concerts, the best pieces of Mozart or the best plays. With regard to the museums of the city, you can find the best banks of the river: Städel, Liebieghaus, Giersch or Portikus are the most prominent.

One way to get around the city is to use the colorful Ebbelwei Express. It is a tram that opened in 1977, although it is only active on weekends and holidays. In the case of taking a free tour in Frankfurt and getting on this tram line, you can enjoy a glass of cider enlivened with music and the best views of the city. If your adventurous spirit continues to demand more destinations, in cities like Berlin, Paris or Brussels we also find guided tours with the best local gurus.
