Discover Frankfurt after your German course

The city of Frankfurt am Main is ideal for learning German at our language school. Frankfurt is world-famous for its historical sites such as Goethe's birthplace, the Frankfurt Town Hall "Römer", the Imperial Cathedral and St. Paul's Church.

The city center with its picturesque half-timbered houses has a medieval flair.

New Old Town

New and old, aren't they opposites? Correct! But since Frankfurt's old town was completely destroyed in the Second World War, it was rebuilt in the style of the Renaissance, hence the term "new old town".

You can visit many historical sights in a small area: The "Römer" is the town hall and landmark of the city, on the other side of the Römerberg is St. Paul's Church. It is a symbol of democracy, as this is where Germany's first freely elected parliament met in 1848: the National Assembly.

Frankfurt Skyline

When we hear Frankfurt, we automatically think of its skyline. A skyline like the one you can find in Frankfurt is something we only know from big cities like New York, Dubai or Hong Kong. That's why the city is also known as "Mainhattan", in reference to the New York district and the River Main, which flows through Frankfurt.

Another nickname for the city is "Bankfurt". The many high-rise buildings are home to numerous banks.

European Central Bank

The European Central Bank (ECB) is also based in Frankfurt. If you want to find out more about the role and tasks of the ECB, you can visit the Skytower.

Get off the S-Bahn or U-Bahn at Ostbahnhof and then walk a few minutes towards the water. From here you also have a great view of the Frankfurt skyline.

Main & Eiserner Steg

The Main is one of the longest rivers in Germany. It flows through Frankfurt, giving the city its nickname "am Main". After your German course, you can stroll along it and watch the ships pass by.

The famous steel and concrete Eiserner Steg pedestrian bridge connects the Old Town with the Sachsenhausen district. Tip: The Iron Footbridge is a very popular photo spot, as you have a breathtaking view of the Frankfurt skyline from here.

Sachsenhausen & the Ebbelwoi

In Frankfurt, people drink "Ebbelwoi"! It's Hessian and means apple wine. If you fancy a taste, you'll find plenty of opportunities in Sachsenhausen, the apple wine district. Here, everything revolves around the Hessian national drink - it is available pure, sour with mineral water or sweet with lemonade. The Ebbelwoi is always served in a traditional jug, the "Bembel".

If you want to try another local specialty, you can order sour wine and Frankfurt Green Sauce at the Gemalten Haus, a traditional cider tavern.

Palm Garden

Around 13,000 different plant species from all over the world can be admired in the Palmengarten. Covering 22 hectares, this botanical garden is one of the largest in Germany. It is open all year round and therefore looks a little different every season.

In addition to plants, there are also regular exhibitions, themed tours and music events. You can also find animals in the butterfly house.
