Frankfurt and Hesse

Manhattan on the River Main - or rather "Mainhattan"!

Save to my Account

Skyscrapers dominate Frankfurt like no other city in Germany and few in Europe. This and its location on the river Main has earned it the nickname of “Mainhattan” which sums it up rather nicely. With its giant financial and communications industries, it’s certainly a thrustingly commercial place that dominates the surrounding province of Hesse and as well as a good part of the Rhine region too.

But visitors who do more than pass through Frankfurt will find that first impressions here fool a little. For every skyscraper there are two quaint German red-brick houses; for every ritzy and unaffordable club, two down-to-earth cider taverns. In rebuilding itself after war time destruction Frankfurt may have done much to cultivate the corporate world, but its provincial roots remain strong and provide many little refuges from all its globalizing modernity. And then there’s Frankfurt’s immense spending on the arts to bear in mind; with one of Europe’s biggest budgets you can be sure its museums are excellent and there’s almost always some impressive cultural event going on.

We will start to add Frankfurt itineraries and attractions as soon as we find the perfect destination specialist (if that’s you, please contact us).
