Frankfurt (Frankfurt am Main)

Frankfurt may well be your entrance port to Germany and Europe; millions of people pass through the Frankfurt airport every year. An old city, Frankfurt has hosted the Romans and Charlemagne. It's also a cultural center as well, with many museums, half of them conveniently lined up along the Main river, but don't explode trying to see all the Frankfurt museums with your kids, pick a few and spend time in each one.
    Old City (Altstadt)
    Eissporthalle Frankfurt – Slip over to the Ice Rink with two arenas and an in-line track kids (and adults) can skate heart out or take in a hockey game.
    Tip: Wednesday's admission is free to many of the city's museums, but they're closed Mondays.
      Wherever you stay or what you want to see, getting around Frankfurt is easy. Stop in at the Frankfurt Tourism Office, either in Old Town or at main train station, and pick up the Frankfurt Card which gives you an unlimited pass for public transportation and half off the entrance fee to museums.

Fun food

      It's just what you'd think - frankfurters of course!
      Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse will give you more choices than you may want, everything from upscale restaurants to fish markets (with cafes and delicatessens in-between).


      Frankfurt is famous for toy makers: Das Spielzimmer has handmade dolls and Hannah Kley wonderful wooden toys. Founded in 1746, Hochster Porzellan, the famous porcelain, can be bought in the company store on Berliner Strasse. The factory itself is in nearby Hochst (ask about tours).
