Things to Do in Frankfurt

Located along the Main in Germany, Frankfurt is a bustling city that boasts a rich history, vibrant nightlife, and a medieval feeling people of all ages will enjoy. Because of the city's ideal location, Expedia recommends staying in downtown Frankfurt, if you plan on participating in Frankfurt excursions to cities in surrounding areas.

To get started on your historical journey through Frankfurt, begin by visiting one of the most popular places in the city, the Frankfurt Romans. Used as the city's main hub for official government business since 1405, the Frankfurt Romans offers a unique look at medieval architecture. The current building, like so many other historical sites in the city, has been beautifully preserved throughout the centuries.

One of the most popular Frankfurt tours among both tourists and local citizens alike is The Main tour. This tour takes you down the river past a number of must see gorgeous medieval castles, historical spots and beautiful scenic landmarks. A variety of companies offer both full day and half day river tours.

Among the many attractions in Frankfurt the whole family can enjoy, the Main Tower is a must visit. Being the tallest building in Frankfurt, the Main Tower offers a complete view of the entire city. Expedia recommends a visit to the tower after you've eaten dinner, as the best time to view the entire city is when the lights are on.

Continue your history tour with one of the top tourist spots in Germany, the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew. For over three hundred years, this well-preserved cathedral has been the focal point of many coronations for Roman Catholic emperors since it was built centuries ago.

Because there are so many things to do in Frankfurt, the Big Ebbel is a great focal point to start your day from. Be sure to have a map with you at all times as you will not want to miss all of the great Frankfurt activities and city tours available.
