Things to do in Frankfurt

About Frankfurt

“Mainhatten” – the name that the inhabitants of Frankfurt like to call their striking skyline, is apparent as soon as you approach the city on your bus. But as you look more closely, you will notice that the city is an interesting combination between modern architecture and historical buildings. The banking city, with the large pedestrian zone ‘Frankfurter Zeil,’ currently has a population of over 690,000 inhabitants, making it the largest city in Hessen. The large exhibition center is probably one of the main reasons to make a bus trip to Frankfurt. However, less well known and hidden in the city is the center of the worldwide internet exchange. Another popular destination for bus travelers is the impressive city airport, which lies just outside of the city but is easily accessible via public transport.

Places of Interest in Frankfurt

Embark on a trip to Frankfurt and experience a richness of attractions. In the old town of Frankfurt there are many preserved buildings that are worth visiting, such as the St. Bartholomäus Cathedral. In front of the Cathedral lie the archaeological gardens with excavations from the Roman and Carolingian periods. For bus travelers who are interested in the Roman period, a visit here is an absolute must. Areas like these show how Frankfurt is a city with historical depth, as well as being famous for the striking skylines, what Frankfurt is most well known for. One of the oldest and longest standing buildings of Frankfurt is the Römer - the picturesque building holds a beautifully landscaped space between the main pedestrian zone of Frankfurt – the “Zeil” – and the train station. This is one of the biggest contrasts between the modern and the old Frankfurt; showing the diversity from the historical buildings of Frankfurt to the towering skyscrapers of “Mainhatten.” These are, as soon as your bus arrives in Frankfurt, not to be overlooked. Next to the “Deutsche Bank Twin Towers,” stands the “Messeturm.” Almost like a gigantic pencil, this building protrudes from the ground and welcomes our bus travelers and tourists alike into its 20 meter high entrance hall. In order to enjoy a breathtaking view of the skyscraping city, we recommend a trip up to the top of the Eschenheim Tower. This tower was once a medieval city gate in Frankfurt but now stands as one of its most outstanding landmarks. The now demolished Henninger Tower was named after the annual cycle race “Rund um den Henninger-Turm,” sometimes called “The Frankfurt Grand Prix,” (1962-2008) and unfortunately can no longer be visited by bus travelers.

Culture and History of Frankfurt

The Museum Embankment is a cluster of various museums, which was developed in 1973. Today upon arriving with your bus to Frankfurt, you can visit all 34 museums with a “museum ticket,” entitling you to a large saving on buying individual museum tickets. For families with children a visit to the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History should definitely be on your to do list. An evening in Frankfurt offers a large choice of cultural possibilities; with extensive theater programs, opera houses and concert halls. The operas in Frankfurt are known worldwide and several times have received the title of “opera of the year.” Those who prefer more Boulevard Theatre would enjoy a visit to the Fritz Rémond Theater, or an excursion down the “Neue Mainzer Straße.”

Nightlife in Frankfurt

Frankfurt also offers a vibrant night life with a versatile list of events. Well known clubs such as the traditional rock club “Batschklapp” which opened in 1976, is a popular location. In The jazz cellar of Frankfurt there is a comfortable, feel-good atmosphere similar to that on your bus. The “King Kamehameha Club” offers a wide range of music styles; from house and dance to Hip Hop, Rock and Pop and of course R&B, everyone’s music taste will be fulfilled.

Interesting Facts about Frankfurt

The Main Guard (“Hauptwache”) is the central square of downtown Frankfurt. Only a few S-Bahn stops from the main train station, here the real urban life is uncovered. From the Main Guard you can go directly to the main shopping street – the “Zeil.” Here are all the major stores and boutiques, meaning that every shopaholic will find what they desire; by itself the shopping district is a good enough reason for a bus trip to Frankfurt. For those less enthusiastic about shopping, and more interested about sport, then Frankfurt is in any case definitely the right place. Whether it’s football, ice hockey, basketball or trampolining – Frankfurt is also known for its many different sports clubs. Accordingly, there are of course many sport events that take place throughout the year. So make sure you check out what’s on when you book your bus travel to ensure that you don’t miss out. The “Frankfurt Marathon” attracts thousands of tourists every year and of course participants, as does ‘Hessen tanzt’ the biggest dance competition in the world.

Surrounding Areas of Frankfurt

The focal point of German airspace: Frankfurt’s airport is by far the biggest in Germany and Europe, in third place behind the Paris Charle de Gaulle and London Heathrow. After traveling by bus to Frankfurt, it is worth to just sit and watch the airplanes waiting to takeoff or landing. If you are less interested by aircraft engineering, then you can utilize Frankfurt’s shopping and culture instead. Frankfurt’s airport is only a few minutes away from the S-Bahn lines or is easily achievable with a bus from the train station.
