Let’s be honest, Frankfurt is not famous for its sight-seeing possibilities. Many other German cities offer many more tourist attractions than Frankfurt, but here you should not miss Main Tower, which opened in early 2000. An impressive 240 meters high, it is the fourth highest tower in the city.
MyZeil in Frankfurt, which opened in 2009, quickly became a favorite spot for Frankfurt shoppers. Designed by Studio Fuskas, it features one of the most intriguing designs in the city. Looking at it from the inside, you have the impression of a vortex starting on the bottom floor and ending on the top floor. The glass and steel facade offers a lot of natural daylight, which makes it quite different from classical shopping centers.
If you are looking for a place in Frankfurt that young people usually enjoy, Sausalitos is the perfect spot! And when I say young, I am referring to those 18 to no more than 30. In fact, Sausalitos is great for students.
The atmosphere is pleasant, and the location is actually pretty big, but if you want a quiet night and a few beers, Sausalitos is not for you. It is usually quite crowded and rather noisy with loud dance music. Even though they have many tables, you should make reservations a few days before you plan to visit.
Let’s talk about the best place to get schnitzel and spare ribs in Frankfurt. If you are looking for classic German cuisine, Leib und Seele will hit the spot perfectly. It is probably also one of the busiest restaurants in the center of the city. Located just a few meters opposite the back entrance of Sport Arena in the Zeil area, Leib und Seele is always filled with happy guests, especially in the busy shopping hours. You might have to wait a few minutes for your table, but it’s well worth it. Why not grab a beer at the bar while you’re waiting to be seated?
If you are ever looking for a great place for you and your family to spend the afternoon, the Frankfurt ZOO is the answer. Located conveniently in the center of the city, it is easily accessible by car as well as public transportation. However, parking can be a problem sometimes, especially when the weather is really nice and the Zoo is really crowded. We would recommend taking the underground line U6/U7 and getting out directly at the ZOO station. Another option is tram 14 which will also take you directly to the ZOO. If you are not in a lazy Sunday kind of mood, why not walk from the Zeil area to the Zoo? It will take you less than 15 minutes.
If you love Mediterranean cuisine, you can’t miss this Greek Taverna located in the Fressgasse area in Frankfurt. Forget about the typical dining experience, this place takes things to a whole new level.
You are welcomed by a friendly host who starts things off with a huge range of tapas-like small dishes which are typical for Greece. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but the Tyrosalata (Spicy Feta Dip) and the Dolmadakia (Stuffed Grape Leaves with Rice) are both incredible. After a few Entrees and a few more Greek jokes by the host, you are ready to order your drinks. Our suggestion is to go with the nice house white wine or maybe even try a glass of Greek beer.
How many of you have a gym membership? And how many of you actually use your gym membership?
You see, I understand going to the gym can be quite boring. And I know the feeling when you make 6 repetitions instead of 10.Later, when your friends ask you how was your workout, you get all pumped and you proudly say you have pushed yourself to the limit today.
But you as well as your body know that this is not true. But there is a way where working out can be fun and where you and your body will actually feel the benefits of your workout. The solution is called CrossFit, and there is one in Frankfurt.
Skyline Plaza is the newest trendy Shopping Mall in Frankfurt opened in September 2013. Located just next to the Frankfurt Fair, expect that it could be quite crowded especially on the days when there is a Fair Show. We would not suggest going there by car because the waiting lines to get into the parking space can sometimes be a bit too long. The easiest way to reach Skyline Plaza Frankfurt is to get there by U-Bahn, line U4, and get off at station Frankfurt Messe. From there is only few minutes walk to the shopping mall positioned in the heart of the new Europaviertel.
