Take a trip down memory lane on the Ebbelwei Express. This old tram from the 30s takes you along the best places in Frankfurt. The trip includes salty pretzels, a glass of apple cider and background music from the 30s. Ganz toll!
Kurt-Schumacher-Str. 10, 60311 Frankfurt am Main
This 18th-century bourgeois house reveals the wealth of the Gœthe family. The living room wallpapered in blue and the superb ornate stove with bas-reliefs representing the goddess of Justice and the wedding at Cana are synonymous with a privileged life. The most emotive piece, the great writer’s desk, is on the second floor. Portraits of the poet hang on the walls, as well as a silhouette of Charlotte Buff. She inspired “The Sorrows of Young Werther”, the work that drove hundreds of young people to suicide. In the other part of the house, a museum brings together the works of Gœthe (1749-1832) and organises temporary exhibitions on literary themes.
Großer Hirschgraben 23-25, 60311 Frankfurt am Main
Nicknamed “Tortenstück” (slice of cake), this triangular building houses one of the finest collections of contemporary art in Europe. Here the classics (Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol and Jasper John) hang side by side with the surprising “Tischgesellschaft” by Katharina Fritsch. While American and European art of the 1960s forms the core of the collection, the museum also offers space to young artists and to new forms of art.
Domstraße 10, 60311 Frankfurt am Main
The new Kunsthalle is really worth a visit for lovers of architecture! The building perfectly combines glass and modern materials which are the main elements forming its cylindrical tower. The Schirn Kunsthalle hosts international-scale temporary exhibitions in collaboration with other major museums and the city’s cultural institutions.
Am Römerberg 6a, 60311 Frankfurt
All the trends in European painting since the 14th century are featured in this museum, more commonly known as the Städel. The German masters (Dürer, Holbein etc.) hang alongside their Flemish, Dutch and French contemporaries. Italian art of the 14th century is very well represented. Following the chronological order will lead you to the most highly-regarded artists of the 20th century, both German (via the Blaue Reiter or Die Brücke movements) and foreign (Giacometti, Tapiès, etc.). With one of the best collections in Germany, this museum must certainly be on everyone’s itinerary.
Schaumainkai 63, 60596 Frankfurt am Main
Established in 1849, Fichtekränzi has carved out its place as the first choice among the traditional restaurants of Frankfurt. Today it is considered to be one of the best. In summer the garden is often full, and the entirely wooden interior is a must-see. You can eat really well for not much money at all. And of course they make their own Apfelwein…
Wallstraße 5, 60594 Frankfurt am Main
Restaurant Opera mixes the arts with good food in a Belle Epoque atmosphere and an ideal setting. Located on the top floor of the old opera house, the eponymous restaurant is often frequented by bankers at lunchtime, and in the evening by locals taking in a concert or show in the opera house. In the summer, stop by for a coffee at the very least; the terrace has a superb view of the square and the city buildings! The cuisine, which is German and international, is for its part extremely sophisticated.
Opernplatz 1, 60313 Frankfurt am Main
Diagnosis: You like house and techno music. But you don’t quite know how to dance to it: your limbs seem to have a life of their own and they don’t have any sense of rhythm. Doctor’s orders: Have a great night out at the Cocoon Club in Frankfurt and improve your dance moves. Copying others is allowed.
Dancing Cocoon Club in Frankfurt. Impressive light show and designer interior. Music genres played are House and techno. Open Friday and Saturday evenings.
