GERMANY: Frankfurt has been ranked as one of the 10 most liveable metropolises in Europe and the best in Germany by The Economist, but here's why you should holiday there!
It's Easy To Get Around
As a city with one of the largest airports in Europe and with excellent rail connections, you'll have no problems picking how you'd like to arrive. And one you're in and settled, you can explore on foot or, do what the locals do, and go adventuring by bicycle. Frankfurt's has incredible cycle paths that will allow you to navigate the city with ease.
Green, Glorious Green!
Frankfurt has plenty of parks, gardens, and playgrounds and all are equally inviting. If you're finding it hard to choose, we recommend the exotic “Palmengarten” in the Westend district - complete with palm and greenhouses for those tropical feels. Spanning 29 hectares, the “Grüneburgpark” is our pick for long, inviting walks. And, best of all, both parks are located near the Adina Frankfurt Westend hotel.
Frankfurt is multi-cultural and the locals like it like that. In fact, almost 30% of the almost 800,000 inhabitants come from abroad and the city has a well-earned reputation as an international meeting place. Film buffs, rejoice. Hardly any other German city shows as many films in their original version as Frankfurt does. And with a hectic calendar of international trade fairs, such as the Frankfurt Book Fair and the International Motor Show IAA, you'll likely be rubbing shoulders with visitors from all over the world next time you visit.
The colourful composition of Frankfurt's inhabitants is also reflected in its culinary offerings. In addition to typical Frankfurt specialities - such as their "green sauce" prepared from fresh herbs - you can embark on a culinary journey around the world when you come to town. From African to Argentinean, Turkish or Greek, you will find all kinds of delicacies waiting to be discovered. Insider Tip: Frankfurt is also considered the vegan capital of Germany and has the highest number of vegetarian restaurants and vegan dishes in the whole of Germany.
Whether museums, concert halls, operas, theatre, dance, or design are your thing, Frankfurt is a paradise for culture vultures of all persuasions. On the Museumsufer, for example, you will find the famous “Städel” - one of Germany's most important art museums - among a total of 26 museums. On the opposite side of the river Main, the opera and theatre programs delight international audiences... and if you're in from out-of-town, it's just a short walk from our Adina Frankfurt Neue Oper.
For those that love the outdoors, open-air events such as the Sommerwerft - an international dance and theatre festival in a breathtaking waterfront setting - are perfect in the summertime.
