The thriving industrial metropolis of Frankfurt, Germany's fifth-largest city and Goethe's hometown, is the gateway for many travellers visiting Germany. Frankfurt is famous for its numerous trade fairs throughout the year, the most popular being the Auto Show and the Book Fair. Today, the city is both a business and financial centre boasting Germany's most spectacular skyline, as well as a worthy tourist destination with its own charm.

You need at least a few days to explore the attractions of the Altstadt, old town, of Frankfurt on foot. This area was heavily bombed during World War II, but has been extensively restored. The attractions here include the Goethe Haus - birthplace of Germany's greatest writer. The Dom, which has been fully reconstructed post-world war II, was the electoral site for the kings of the Holy Roman Empire in 1356. The Schaumankai or Museumsufer, boasts a collection of first class museums; and the Römer, Frankfurt's municipal square, is surrounded by beautiful historic half-timbered buildings.

Don't miss a sampling of Frankfurt's delicacy 'Ebbelwei' - a very potent apple cider. This can best be done onboard the Ebbelwei-Express tram, which offers a one-hour trip passing by many of Frankfurt's historic sights while providing Ebbelwei, pretzels and live music.

The areas surrounding Frankfurt can easily be explored by car. On the outskirts of Frankfurt lie the Taunus Mountains, a favourite residential area for the wealthy. Explore the castle ruins in Königstein, enjoy the spa and shopping in Bad Homburg and stroll around the cobbled streets of Kronberg. Farther afield are the larger cities of Wiesbaden and Mainz, which are easily reached via the Autobahn from Frankfurt and are worth a visit.

Frankfurt is beautifully located along the banks of the Main River, where visitors can stroll or take a boat ride up to the wine country in Rüdesheim and taste the excellent wines produced in this region. Frankfurt was named after the shallow 'furt' or ford, where the Franks were able to cross the river.

Known as the transportation hub of Germany, Frankfurt boasts many convenient travel options. Most international flights to Europe, as well as to Asia and the East Coast of the US pass through Frankfurt Airport. Also, the centrally located railway station, dating back to the 19th century is the busiest in Europe, providing comfortable and efficient connections through Germany and farther afield. The travel options are abundant and suit any budget and schedule.
