Frankfurt am Main is the fifth grandest city in Germany and the biggest one in the state of Hesse. This global hub of commerce is one of the most diverse places in Europe, with more than a quarter of its 2.2 million population being foreign nationals! With a million of its people having a migrant background, Frankfurt is as colorful and diverse as its citizens!

An alpha city and a top player in many areas such as commerce, tourism, and education, Frankfurt attracts millions of tourists every year.

However, Frankfurt wasn’t always such a hub of brilliance and fun. In fact, it used to be all swampy and unpleasant! The settlement, started by Romans, remained obscure and unknown for hundreds of years. Everything changed with the magnificent and powerful Charlemagne decided to build himself a royal court there! Many deliberations, councils, canons, and laws were discussed and established there. Charlemagne’s family grew so fond of the place that his son made the palace bigger. It is not a surprise that Franks loved Frankfurt – after all, they liked it enough to name it after themselves. Soon enough, Frankfurt became the central seat of power of Eastern Francia. This is also where kings of Germany, such as Frederic Barbarossa, were elected.

It didn’t end there, though! Frankfurt expanded, even more, becoming the Free Imperial City of Frankfurt.

When the printing press was invented in Mainz, the nearby Frankfurt greatly benefited from it. Education and fine arts exploded, and Frankfurt started hosting the most important book fair in Germany. In fact, it still does, so make sure to visit the Frankfurt Book Fair when you can! World-famous German poet and writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born and raised in Frankfurt. Thanks to this, you will find many institutions and buildings dedicated to him in Frankfurt – including a university and a museum.

The darkest period of Frankfurt history is fresh and recent, just from before World War II. The infamous and terrifying Kristallnacht took place in Frankfurt, destroying its beautiful Synagogues and ruining countless lives. During the War, Frankfurt was relentlessly bombed. The entirety of Old City was destroyed during one of the attacks.

However, since then, Frankfurt got from its knees and is prospering and booming again, inviting you to visit and witness its wonders! And there is much to see. The Römerberg – Aldstadt, Old Town – was faithfully reconstructed and amazes countless visitors with its wide diversity of architectural styles. The Historical Museum of Frankfurt is a must-see!

However, if one really wants to delve deep into art, culture, and history in Frankfurt, they MUST visit the Museumsufer, the Museum District. These internationally famous 16 museums gather history and wonders from both Germany and the entire world alike. Archeology, Icons, Film, Architecture, Sculpture – Frankfurt has a Museum for each of these, and often more than one!

Those who enjoy nature more than architecture definitely will love the Palm Garden, the biggest and grandest botanic garden in the country!

I highly recommend this company. The car for 6 people was waiting for us even before the scheduled time. The drivers were super nice and the car ( minibus) clean and comfortable. Good price too and you can pay in cash or credit card if you order via website.
