Frankfurt for most travellers is ordinarily a stop-over destination for onward journeys in to Europe, however once you scratch the surface your will realise that there is more than meets the eye. Let me open your eyes to Frankfurt!
First on my “Frankfurt at its best” list is the Main Tower. A view from the Main Tower of Frankfurt is sure to arouse interest as to what this city has to offer.
Still not impressed by the Frankfurt’s’ Main Tower? Well then, maybe shopping at Zeil Street, or rather the “Fifth Avenue of Germany” will charm you. Zeil Street is the ultimate retail therapy street in Germany. At this shopper’s paradise expect to find world’s top designer stores, luxury articles such as perfume and pieces of art. Zeil Street, services more than 500,000 clients almost every day, with such a clientele, you’re bound to find that one thing you love!
If shopping is not your thing but modern art is more what you’re into, then a tour of the Museum of Modern Art (Museum fur Moderne Kunst), will definitely get you going.
What you may find peculiar about MMK is its triangular shape, hence it is called “piece of cake” by the locals. Don’t be swayed away by the “piece of cake” shape or the not so impressive features of the building outside. The gold is really inside.
Frankfurt is all about history, and the Germans take pride in restoring buildings that reflect their history, which brings us to The Goethe House. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) is one of Germany’s most popular writers, and Frankfurt is his birthplace. His house was destroyed many years ago, however it has been fully restored, and has the original furniture, paintings of the Goethe family & more.
After a long day of touring Frankfurt, take walk along the Palmengarten (Botanical Gardens).
The Botanical Gardens take you away from the rush of the city. A very peaceful place, to get lost in your thoughts and have those travel revelations.
