What to do in Frankfurt

Spend a day at Frankfurt Zoo

Frankfurt Zoo is recognised as one of the most important in Europe – not just because of its exotic inhabitants, but for the conservation work it carries out each year. The facility itself is an oasis of lush green in the middle of the city, and visitors get to see animals as varied as wolves, tigers, lions, giraffes, penguins, snakes and crocodiles. Sunday is piranha-feeding day.

See the Römer

The Römer family originally owned this medieval building, which is one of Frankfurt’s most recognisable landmarks. The family sold it to the city in 1405, whereupon it became Frankfurt’s rathaus (city hall).

Pay a visit to Goethe’s place

Goethe, one of Germany’s most revered literary sons, was born in this 18th century house, where he lived until 1775. It was here Goethe wrote The Sorrows of Young Werther and began work on Faust. The house has now been made into a museum in his honour, and you can still see Goethe's original writing desk and his library on the top floor.
