Things to do in Frankfurt

Translated to the “Museum Embankment,” the Museumsufer is made up of a cluster of 12 museums dedicated to film, art, history, and other interesting topics. You might decide to go to the Museum of World Heritages, the Icon Museum, the Städel Art Museum, the German Architecture Museum, or all of the above.
Wander around the Römerberg
One of the most gorgeous areas in Frankfurt is the Old Town, a public square with gorgeous, quintessentially German buildings. Some popular components of this area include the Justice Fountain, which is located in the centre, the Old Town Hall, and the Historical Museum. During the holiday season, the Christmas market that makes up this square is quite a spectacle.
Marvel at St. Bartholomew's Cathedral
This breathtaking cathedral was built between the 13th and 15th centuries out of red sandstone and in the Gothic style. In the 16th to 18th centuries, this was considered the Imperial Cathedral, where emperors were coronated. Tourists can enter St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral and climb to the top of the highest tower, which offers a gorgeous view of Frankfurt.
Goethe House and Museum
One of the most prominent German writers, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, comes from Frankfurt. Tourists can view the Goethe family’s home, where he lived between his birth in 1749 and 1765. The ornate dining room and Goethe’s writing room, where he wrote many of his earliest works, are two spots that cannot be missed. Next to the house is the Goethe Museum, a gallery that shows art from Goethe’s time, mostly of the late baroque and romantic styles.
Frankfurt’s medieval wall does not stand the way it did at the time for multiple reasons: old age and the modernisation of defense systems. However, the 10-storey tower, which guarded the northern wall, was spared of demolition and instead became a monument. This tower is the oldest unaltered landmark in Frankfurt, as it was constructed at the beginning of the 15th century. Currently, visitors cannot enter unless they reserve a table at the high-class restaurant inside, but viewing the outside makes this detour worthwhile.
