Frankfurt, breathtaking views!

As an economic capital and major financial centre in Europe, Frankfurt is a popular destination among business circles.

However, the German city that has been twinned with Lyon since 1960, also has an appeal for tourist visits. Among the most visited sites are the Städel museum, Goethe House, Saint-Bartholomew’s Cathedral or the Henninger Tower offering a breath-taking view over the city, the Main, the Stadtwald forest and the Taunus Mountains.

5 reasons to visit Frankfurt

Seeking Traces of a Distressing Past

Rebuilt after the war, the central square of the city has preserved some traces of the city’s past. Former fairgrounds, the Römerberg (or Mount of Romans) lies on the foundations of the ancient Roman city. This very lively place (Christmas market, medieval reconstructions ...) is a perfect starting point when visiting the city.

Exploring the Green Lung of the City

Frankfurt also has its Central Park! Its Palmengarten, a veritable oasis of greenery concentrating a good part of the planetary flora, is a garden spread over 22 hectares in the middle of the city. A must-see for botanic enthusiasts and walkers.

Walking in the Footsteps of Goethe

Perfectly reconstructed, Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe's house today is a museum devoted to one of the most brilliant minds of the eighteenth century. The ideal place to soak up the indelible legacy left by the author of Faust to the largest city of Hesse.

Filling up on Modern Art

Frankfurt is home to one of the world's most important contemporary art museums, the Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art, the MMK. Its postmodernist architecture has earned this cultural stronghold (whose rooms hold a collection of nearly 4,500 works) the affectionate nickname "Stückkuchen" (piece of cake).

Enjoying the Ambiance of the Sachsenhausen District

Particularly lively and animated, it concentrates the most typical bars and breweries of the city. The narrow, winding lanes of this district on the left bank of the Main hide more than a hundred establishments where you can taste the local specialties, washed down with a good German beer.
