"Mainhattan" – as Frankfurt is playfully called – boasts more than just an impressive skyline. It also captivates visitors with its charm and character. Frankfurt is known for its banking district and international airport as a gateway to the world. However, Frankfurt has many more facets than finance and modern steel palaces.
Cosmopolitan city with a heart
The city center is vibrant and steeped in history: the Cathedral, St. Paul's Church and Frankfurt City Hall – the "Römer" – belong on every visitor's must-see list. Deep down, Frankfurt has a Mediterranean spirit, too. The Palmengarten botanical garden is an oasis of tranquillity and a popular venue for events, and shelters plants and animals from a wide variety of climate zones. Take a closer look, and you'll discover hidden pockets of traditional half-timbered houses, even in downtown Frankfurt. If you don't have much time to tour the Main River metropolis, Steigenberger Airport Hotel is the perfect starting point for exploring this cosmopolitan city with a heart.
