Top 10 things to in Frankfurt

Situated on Germany's scenic River Main, Frankfurt's soaring skyline has earned it the nickame "Mainhattan." But beneath the sleek skyscrapers lies a trove of historic and cultural treasures. Here are ten of the "Main" attractions! (No more puns, we promise!)

Schirn Gallery

Located in the city's historic center, the Schirn hosts only temporary exhibitions, making it a favorite attraction for Frankfurt's returning visitors, as well as new ones!

Naturmuseum Senckenberg

Go for the extensive fossil and geological exhibits if you like, but the attractive dioramas and imposing dinosaur skeletons make it one of the best places to visit with kids!

Main Tower

The cylindrical Main Tower is an icon of the Frankfurt cityscape. Reserve a table at its 53rd-storey restaurant to admire the views over dinner and cocktails.


Massimiliano Fuksas' spectacular glass architecture makes Frankfurt's premier shopping mall as much a sightseeing attraction as a mecca for great deals and leading brands.

Festhalle Frankfurt

Once the largest domed building in Europe, the entertainment venue and convention center continues to impress sightseers today. Check the program for upcoming concerts and events!

Frankfurt Opera House

Frankfurt's cultural prominence is at least partly down to its outstanding modern opera house. It's one of the best in Europe, so book early for the best value seats!

Alte Oper Frankfurt

Built in 1880, the city's old opera house was an architectural and acoustic triumph! It was partly destroyed in World War II, but extensive restorations saw it reopen in 1981.

The former Forest Stadium is home to the city's biggest sporting events and concerts. It's hosted talents from the Brazilian football team to Bruce Springsteen! Who will you see?


Plan a picnic at one of Europe's most spectacular botanical gardens. Don't panic if it rains – just head to the impressive tropicarium and you'll soon forget about it!

Frankfurt Zoo

Frankfurt's historic zoo remains one of the world's most important, with 500 species roaming the various enclosures. If you leave wanting more, check out the city's Opel Zoo, too!

Planning Your Frankfurt Visit

When to go?

How many days?

Frankfurt is perfect for sightseeing over 2 or 3 days, but it's worth checking what's on offer at its many cultural institutions. You may want to stay a little longer for its stage performances and museums!

Amazing trip and our tour guide and bus driver were the best.

They picked us up from our hotel lobby right on time and took us to our meeting point. The tour guide was very informative and also quite humorous as well. We had since lunch, wine tasting, and the boat cruise down the Rhein river was absolutely wonderful.

informative guide with a nice sense of humor.

We had a small group. The guide gave us plenty of time to take pictures and walk around on our own. He gave us some tips and great historical facts. His sense of humor was fun and refreshing.
