Book Cheap Flights to Frankfurt, the City of Paradise
Don't just go via Frankfurt Airport on your next trip to Europe. Take time instead to explore the fifth-largest city in Germany.
Frankfurt, situated in south-western Germany, is the largest city in the Hesse province.
From Switzerland and South Germany, Frankfurt has for a long time been a major center for the river, rail and road traffic, north along the Rhine to the Ruhr and north-central Germany along the main river. It still remains the key traffic center to West Germany, and since 1880s it has also acted as a major domestic shipping port. Frankfurt Airport is one of Germany's biggest airports and one of Europe's busiest. The city has long held a special place in German culture, distributed over the two sides of the Main River (hence its official name, Frankfurt am Main).
Frankfurt has long been an significant hub for cultural and tourism events, considered a global city – always in the top ten best cities to live and do business. Its enormous trade show complex, Messe Frankfurt, houses the most important publishing event in the world, the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Frankfurt of the Modern Era
Frankfurt's Old Town was, until World War II, the largest medieval town still intact in Germany, and grew up around the imperial castle. Nevertheless, the old town was largely destroyed by allied bombings in 1944 and later rebuilt with some new offices and other modern buildings. One of the city's best known old buildings is the Römer and two more gabled houses on Römerberg. They are the site of the Holy Roman emperor's coronation ceremonies and now the city hall of Frankfurt. Other historical sites include: the Eschenheimer Tower, 155 feet (47 metres) tall (1400-28); the cathedral of red sandstone dedicated to St. Bartholomew in 1239; and the church of Pauls, where the 1st Franco-National Assembly was convened.
Frankfurt's Major Significance
Since 1240 international fairs have taken place in Frankfurt, and the town today is a leading center for commerce, finance and high technology. A major stock exchange (first set up in 1585) is established. In Frankfurt, the family of Rothschild began to build its international banking empire. The town is also home to the central bank of the European Union. Annual book, car and computer fairs are popular events and many more fairs are held all year long. Car, machinery, chemical products, medicines, fabrics and foodstuffs are produced. Manufacturing. The city's high-grade sausage production (frankfurters) is historically established.
The University of Frankfurt, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, 1914, is one of Germany's largest institutions. The Zoological Garden of Frankfurt am Main City is one of the finest zoos in the world. The Städel Art Institute and Municipal Gallery, the Museum of Natural History of Senkenberg and the Museum of Sculpture of Liebieghaus are some of the other attractions in the city. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's birthplace was burnt down during the Second World War but restored later on. The museum and library is next to it.
Frankfurt 's main location is known as the 'Gateway to Europe,' where travelers also use it as a transit point for other major cities of destination. In recent times, however, there has been another one, referring to the evolving role of the city as an exciting new destination on the Old Continent, Frankfurt.
The country was provided not only by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, his popular novel, but also by important elections and coronations of the kings and emperors of the Roman Empire. This is the location where he is tucked away on a small street of downtown. And, although many sites had to be rebuilt after World War II, history remains an important tourist aspect.
But Frankfurt only paints a part of the image through a historical lens. You need just look at the skyline to get a full picture of what Frankfurt is now — and will become in the next few years. Manhattan is similar to local people (thus the portmanteau of 'Mainhattan').
The architectural combination is interesting, and the new high-rise glass overlooks traditional churches of red-brick. You can also find a large number of turrets stretching their necks higher and higher, suggesting the ongoing metamorphosis of the city.
By voting to break out of the European Union in Britain Frankfurt, home to the European Central Bank headquarters since 1998, many large financial institutions and companies planning to leave London immediately had flagged as a possible relocation choice.
It nevertheless remains an international city in itself, even though it has just 700,000 inhabitants (compared to London's 8,6 million). More than half of the population are now non-German and over 100 languages are spoken every day. In all ways a swift flow of wealth can transform a city, it also helps to develop a diverse art, music and food scene, which is only more attractive for travelers.
The neighborhoods of Frankfurt each have their own character and charm. For those who want to experience the historical and cultural heritage of a town, Sachsenhausen with its cobbled streets and museums. Ostend and Nordend are ideal for a casual stroll with their various cafés and shops, while the old bourgeois neighborhood, Westend, houses Palmergarten, its stunning botanical gardens.
Climate in Frankfurt
The temperate-oceanic climate (köppen), according to the country's trends, is continental to temperate, but it is the warmest major town in Germany.
The average daily temperature, however, ranges from 35 F in January to 68 F in July. The city is known to be gray particularly between October and February. Be prepared for unpredictable weather, as the weather can change several times a day from rain to sun and back. Fortunately, only about 25 cm per year of precipitation, but it is spread all year round.
Between half of May to mid- September is the perfect time to visit. Although you risk the summer rainstorms from June to August, the temperature usually ranges from 68 F (20 F) to 77 F ( 25 F). At Christmas, you should also find Germany's magic – cold can be worth bravely.
Transport in Frankfurt
Germany is known for its transport systems' efficiency , speed and reliability, and Frankfurt is no exception. The Rhine-Main Transport Association (RMV) network is easier to navigate on the underground, tram and bus lines than a car, which is possibly cheaper (most local residents do not have a luxury). Touch-screen ticketing machines typically have an choice in English. Each fare provides access to the subway, tram and bus lines, meaning that they don't have to be checked because the tickets are timestamped. While you have no tourniquet, the controllers may at any time check your ticket – to get caught black riding or to get a dent of 60 Euro in your wallet with a wrong ticket. Don't look for sympathy because you are an outside of yourself — the punishment is applied strictly. For a day trip, in addition to the main railway station, Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof, the state-run railway network Deutsche Bahn is well connected to Frankfurt through many railway stations for longer distances.
The metro network in Frankfurt is composed of the S-Bahn network (nine commuter rail routes) and the subway system (nine road and subway lines). We recommend installing the RMV app on your phone while you can chart your journey on the RMV website or via Google Maps. The app has a navigation feature and directly connects to your chosen credit card. Both these ticket machines can save time – and they only carry credit cards with chips. Only stations or trams – not subway lines – can buy tickets. The app stores all the receipts in one location as a bonus for business travelers reporting expenses.
Prices depend on the amount of locations you visit, but in general, for an adult 's trip to most city sites, 2,75 euros, children are eligible for a discounted fare. Select 'Kurzstrecke' for a short-trip ticket prices of 1,85 euro for adults on a journey of less than two kilometres. The Frankfurt Card at €22 per 24-hour is a true deal for groups up to five, with groups which are able to be printed at home and used for travel from Frankfurt Airport or HBF. The card provides discounts on many big sights. Tip: While bicycles can be taken free of charge on the Frankfurt subway network, they are (and can be rejected) discouraged during peak times.
Buses in Frankfurt
Picks are scarce between 1 am and 4 am, depending on the day of the week, for the S-Bahn and the subway lines. Busses operate however 24 hours a day, and city-wide routes are a convenient and affordable way to swim in town. Many bus stops have a roof overhang and tickets can be purchased on board for protection from the weather. Although folding bikes may be carried on buses, those which do not collapse are discouraged, although during peak hours the rider may allow one to slip by.
Trains in Frankfurt
Would you like to take a trip to a nearby town or take a dip in the summer on one of the pristine German lakes? The 33,300-kilometer modern railway line and a wide network of regional trains running through the surrous regions of Frankfurt every day. The Deutsche Bahn transports about 5.5 million passengers. No tickets are available on the Deutsche Bahn website and, if you buy long-distance tickets earlier, the cheaper will they be. Regional tickets for the day, weekend or day tickets are sold in Germany. See exclusive deals for Germany or beyond, including group prices.
