After a leisurely hotel breakfast, take a 15-minute stroll along the riverside to the charming old town. Frankfurt's neo-Gothic cathedral towers over the city centre, and you'll enjoy a panoramic view from its lofty viewing platform. Take in world-class modern and contemporary art at the striking Schirn Kunsthalle nearby or cartoon and comic art at the neighbouring Caricatura museum. Cross the river to visit the Städel Museum, known for its outstanding European art collection.
After lunch head over to Berger Strasse, a 15-minute taxi ride from the hotel, to browse hip fashion and book stores. You can also sample local delicacies at the weekly farmers' market here, held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If you fancy a break, try a traditional cider or coffee and cake at one of the cosy pubs or cafés, and then head back into the city centre to explore Goethestrasse. Lined with designer boutiques and upmarket department stores, it's the perfect place to pick up a few gifts.
After a delicious meal at the hotel's Signatures Veranda Restaurant, ask the concierge to book tickets for a concert at the imposing, 19th-century Alte Oper, an English-language production at the English Theatre or a play at the Frankfurt Schauspielhaus. They’re all just a short distance away. Stroll across the river to sample Frankfurt’s famous traditional apple wine in Sachsenhausen’s pubs, or if you prefer live music and dancing try the Gibson nightclub, only a few minutes from the hotel.
The history of this local almond and marzipan delicacy dates back to the early 19th century. It's named after city councillor Simon Moritz von Bethmann. The three almonds symbolise his three sons.
The viniculture at the hills of the Lohrberg is dating back to the 9th century. Nowadays, the Lohrberger Hang is the last vineyard in Frankfurt. The wine is used and sold at Frankfurt's city hall the "Roemer". Enjoy a magnificent view of Frankfurt and the Rhein/Main region from the wine yard hills.
Founded more than 30 years ago, the English Theatre in Frankfurt is the largest English-speaking theatre in continental Europe. It has become a recognised cultural institution in the greater Rhine-Main region thanks to the consistently high standards of its productions, its international flair and its role as a meeting place for people of all nationalities.
