Frankfurt, Germany, is widely known as the country's financial center. At the same time, you'll also find centuries of history and tradition to savor when you visit. Select one of the many cultural tours, or set out on your own with a Frankfurt car rental. Stroll amongst Monets and Rembrandts at the Staedel Museum, then relax amidst the luxury and tranquility of the well-manicured gardens in the back.
Medieval to Modern
The Frankfurt Airport is just seven miles southwest of downtown Frankfurt. At Frankfurter Romer, experience classic medieval homes and brightly-colored buildings that contrast with the towering skyscrapers found in the financial district. There, go to the Main Tower, where you can enjoy 360-degree views from an observation deck more than 600 feet above the ground. Stand close to the waist-high plexiglas walls, and you might experience a bit of vertigo. After a busy day sightseeing, seek refuge in the serenity of the Palmengarten, a surprisingly large park featuring botanical gardens, lakes, and indoor displays of exotic flora where you can savor the sweet fragrances of the rose garden. Arrange for one of the cheap car rentals in Frankfurt, and take off for the nearby Taunus mountain area and visit the Meisterturm in Hofheim. Its "Master Tower" is beautifully situated in the town woods. Climb the 172 steps and you'll be rewarded with a truly breathtaking view. Enjoy a frothy brew in the festive beer garden before returning to Frankfurt.
