Goethe House, the former home of famous German author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, is in Frankfurt city centre. For the full experience, take a guided tour of the 3-storey house where this literary luminary was born in 1749. See the writing room where he worked on novels, plays and poems, and check out his toy puppet theatre. The museum next door displays German art from Goethe’s lifetime.
Take the kids for a family day out to Frankfurt Zoo, a 30-minute drive from the hotel. The naturalistic enclosures are home to big cats, giraffes, rhinos and birds of prey, plus many other exotic species. Here’s your chance to get up close to turtles, crocodiles and penguins during regular daily feeding times. Pay a visit to the rare tree kangaroos, and then let the kids loose in the playground.

Don't Go Home Without
Pay a visit to the city’s medieval square, the Römerberg, with its cobbled pavements and colourful half-timbered houses. Don’t miss the Kaiserdom nearby, Frankfurt’s ornate and imposing Gothic cathedral built of red sandstone. This centuries-old landmark was reconstructed after a fire in the 1860s. Climb 324 steps to the top of the church’s tower for stunning views of the city.
