Frankfurt

The most stunning thing about Frankfurt is its skyline, which is visible for miles. Things you have to see on a visit to the city include the Roemer, St Paul's church and Frankfurt Cathedral. If churches aren't your scene, then there is a plethora of other things to do, including the river Main, the gardens of Nice, the zoo, botanical gardens and the porcelain factory. The other thing that Frankfurt is famous for is its apple wine, which is a must try! If you're only in Frankfurt for a short time, why not try the "hop on hop off" tourist bus which will allow to see all the sights on offer and pick what you're most interested in. Of course, there is also an abundance of shopping and dining opportunities, so why not fly with Austrian Airlines to Frankfurt and discover this wonderful city for yourself?

SHOPPING in Frankfurt:

Organicc

 Organicc

Never before has eco fashion, also beyond the eco scene, been as hip as it is today. There are more and more shops that fit this category. Organicc is a special one among them: Owner Gerd Palmer only sells clothes and accessories that were produced under fair working conditions. Moreover, they should be made of organic or recycled materials. The cotton for the clothes is grown in an environmentally friendly way, and the switch to different cultivation methods is supported financially. Child labour or the exploitation of workers are a taboo. For Palmer, eco is not a hip trend that you can turn into gold, but an attitude towards life. Designers such as Katherine E Hamnett, Bono's label EDUN or Ivana Basilotta are part of the collection, as are shoes by Terra Plana!. The selection of wearable and modern street ware is great, and on top of that you'll get the feeling of having shopped responsibly for free.

MyZeil

 MyZeil

The building itself is already worth a visit. The Italian star architect Massimiliano Fuksas set his hand to the design. His innovative plan looked as follows: he took the aerial image of a dried-out course of a river and used it as the basis for his groun d plan. In this way a building without any edges came into existence - round, curved and bent. Above a glass roof lies down like a rapid stream in waves.   And what's under the roof? On six floors there are jeans and casual wear by Guess, G-star, Hilfiger Denim, Replay and Pepe, as well as lace lingerie by Princess Tam Tam and Passionata, additionally there's functional clothing by The North Face and Columbia or surf clothing by Chiemsee or Quicksilver. A 47 metre long express escalator takes you directly to the culinary boulevard where various international cuisines are on the menu.

Kleidermarkt

 Kleidermarkt

This hip second-hand shop is located at the popular shopping mile Zeil-Konstablerwache. If you don't find any bargains here, where will you? The secret recipe: A lot of time. If you have enough of it and are in the mood for rummaging, you'll surely find something. There are some new clothes and a great selection of second-hand fashion, including bell-bottoms and ruffled blouses from the 1960s or the most recent fashion. Look closely, there are many labels such as Nike, Adidas or Lacoste. A tip for those who are searching for even steeper bargains: Every Wednesday there are four Happy Hours. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. you'll get another 20% discount on everything - a great deal considering that it's already unbeatably cheap.

EAT in Frankfurt:

EDMW

 EDMW

The name EDMW stands for EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN of the Ang Lee movie. The topic? Asian cuisine arts and human relationships. The name says it all.

If you want to taste it all, choose the Tapas - a perfect cross-section of the edible Asia. DRINK is part of the programme, too.

This doesn't only sound delicious, it is, and it is confirmed by the star, which the international hotel and restaurant guide Michelin has been awarding since 1997. The menu is excellent, the wine selection, too, and the service team around the chef and sommelier Miguel Martin top class. Tip: Enjoy a menu in the Tiger Restaurant and a late show of the excellent artists and acrobats.

Orfeo's Erben

 Orfeo's Erben

When Orfeo's Erben (heirs) was opened in January 1999, as a successor of one of the most renowned art house cinemas in Germany, nobody had an idea that Andreas Lucas and Harry Dehnhardt had hit on an excellent concept: They made the Orfeo's into a unique, public cinema restaurant, which is unrivalled in Germany. Both sides of the business are a great deal. In the smallest THX cinema in Germany you see movies, trailers and the latest production of aspiring German film-makers. The open bar and restaurant area has also got many fans. Who's surprised? The atmosphere is great, and the food, too. Trade Fair visitors, neighbours, regulars, and movie lovers are repeat customers here. You find delicious international dishes on the menu: Crunchy salads with a sophisticated dressing, pasta, fish and meat. If you are lucky you get one of the sought-after tables next to the screening room - then you can enjoy your food with a good movie.

SIGHTS in Frankfurt:

Der Goetheturm

 Der Goetheturm

Look up once with awe, tie your shoes, take a deep breath and go for it... 196 steps are ahead of you. But they are worth the effort! And then? Look down in awe, shake out your legs and take a deep breath...The 43 metre high Goethe Tower is the highest wooden tower in Germany. Its foundation is located 147 metres above sea level, 54 metres higher than the Main, and that's definitely impressive. The reward of the trip up: A beautiful view of the skyline, the Stadtwald forest, the entire Rhein-Main area, plus the feeling to be above all that. Afterwards the paths in the Stadtwald around the tower invite you for a stroll in the woods, and if you are here with kids, you'll have to make a stop at the Waldspielpark playground with its giant slide, paddling pools and adventurous rides.

Bartholomäus Dom

 Bartholomäus Dom

If you want to see the top sights of the city, you won't get passed the cathedral. During the Middle Ages the Frankfurt Kaiserdom (Imperial Cathedral) was where German kings were elected, and later the crowning church of Holy Roman emperors. It evolved from the Salvatorkirche that was endowed by Ludwig II. in 852, and rebuilt in 1953 after severe damage had occurred during World War II. Today it harbours valuable altars and tombs of the late Gothic era. Of course, most of the time it's quite calm and contemplative here, however, different events, changing exhibitions and church services on Sundays bring life into the old walls. If you don't want to stay inside for too long, a visit will still be worth your time. You can climb the cathedral's tower and enjoy a beautiful view of the city. And the final surprise: Admission is free!

Palmengarten

 Palmengarten

Roses, stone, heath and rhododendron garden, long walking paths lined by tropical plants and then a romantic waterfall. If you need some downtime from the stress in the city, if you want to take a deep breath, and be one with nature, the Palmengarten (palm garden) is right for you. With 22 hectares this is the biggest palm garden in Germany, and if you manage to go with the calm flow, you'll feel like in paradise. Aside from beautifully designed walking paths, a boat rental at the pond as well as shady green areas with reclining chairs, the different exhibition spaces such as the palm house, the petal or the subantarctic house invite you to discover botanical diversity. With an entry-fee of only 5 euros for adults, the green oasis is a reasonably-priced option for relaxing and revitalizing in the middle of the city.
