Frankfurt am Main – Not just a typical banking city

As the most international metropolis in Germany, Frankfurt meets the needs of everybody due to its unique combination of tradition and modernity. This city has so much more to offer than just skyscrapers and bankers!

It’s a place that loves to party. So let’s start the journey and discover my most favourite festivals amongst skyscrapers and the Old Town, throughout the year!

Main Embankment Festival
An attraction for the young and the old, where numerous international food stalls are situated on both sides of the Main riverbank. Multiple entertaining stage programmes ensure a great atmosphere! An important advice: Don’t miss the big fireworks on the last day of this festival which is truly impressive!

Apple Wine Festival
Try out Frankfurt’s most traditional beverage, the Apple Wine or how Hessian’s call it “Äppelwoi”, made of different apple varieties. Apart from entertainment stage music, visitors can also find a selection of apple wine on sale as a perfect souvenir.

Frankfurt Christmas Market
Here, located in Frankfurt’s Old Town “Römer“, you can expect a wide range of food stalls with typical German drinks and dishes. The stalls are elaborately decorated. Various arts and crafts stalls as well as multiple carousels for kids create a place of pleasure and arouse  the pre-christmas mood!
