Frankfurt, known as Europe’s largest financial center, is a vibrant city, a melting pot of cultures, languages and lifestyles.
Frankfurt is a fun city to visit at any time of the year. Although many visitors choose to go there during the summer months, Frankfurt is a thriving place in the winter as well with its endless array of shops, restaurants, museums and cafés. Frankfurt is a great starting point if you wish to explore Germany further, notably the southern and central parts. When in Frankfurt, remember to visit neighboring Wiesbaden and Heidelberg. Wiesbaden stands on the banks of the Rhein just west of Frankfurt, full of old castles and old manors as well as some sprawling, lush botanical parks and Germany’s best known casino.
