Many of the city's tourist services have been designed to appeal to discerning business travelers, meaning you can expect your trip to Frankfurt to be efficient, comfortable and worry-free.

What to See and Do in Frankfurt
Frankfurt's city center is compact and easily walkable. In fact, a number of free and low-cost walking tours explore the city center every day, with English-speaking guides leading visitors to attractions including Romerberg Square, the Old Opera, the Iron Bridge and Saint Paul's Church. Museum lovers will want to visit the collection of museums along the city's riverbank (including the German Film Museum and the city's Jewish Museum), but sports fanatics will probably prefer taking in a Eintracht Frankfurt match at the Commerzbank-Arena, just south of the city center.
Frankfurt is an excellent home base for day trips throughout the region. Consider renting a car to explore the medieval town of Mainz and the stunning castle in Heidelberg.
