Frankfurt is one of the most charming cities that Germany has in store. Amazing attractions are scattered all around it, and its Old Town happens to be home to some of the very best. Here are three magical spots that you shouldn’t miss if you want to immerse yourself in Frankfurt’s rich history and culture.


Römerberg is pretty much synonymous with Frankfurt’s Old Town and it’s one of the most beautiful historic squares in Germany. Its 15th-century timber houses look straight out of a fairy tale, and you should check them out during one of many events hosted here, including one of Europe’s very best Christmas markets.

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt

Frankfurt is home to more art museums and galleries than we can count, but none of them compares to Schirn Kunsthalle. You should put it on your bucket list if you’re a fan of contemporary art. In addition to having an impressive permanent collection, it regularly hosts temporary exhibitions paying homage to modern masters.

Frankfurt Cathedral

Fans of Gothic architecture will fall head over heels with Frankfurt. This city is home to many examples of this architectural style, starting with this 15th-century cathedral. You should also make sure to check out its Renaissance frescoes and climb to the top tower for some amazing city views.
