With a history dating back to Roman times, Frankfurt is still filled with iconic reminders of its past. Today it's a global financial hub, with a thoroughly 21st century skyline, but cultural life still centres around the Altstadt where the city was founded.
Frankfurt is famous for its Christmas market, held at Römerberg Square since the 14th century. Originally a local affair, now this event draws visitors from around the world to sip spicy mulled wine and browse stalls selling traditional ornaments and wooden decorations. Throughout the year, a weekly farmers' market brings local wares and produce to the edge of boutique-lined Zeil, one of Europe’s largest pedestrianised shopping streets.
It's easy to get around with Frankfurt's efficient transit system, which even reaches the Stadtwald, one of Germany's largest urban forests and a must-visit for hikers. If you prefer a more gentle walk, stroll along the river Main, with its banks lined with popular museums, including the Städel, one of Germany's oldest art museums.
