Flights - Frankfurt

By: David Collins

When we think of Frankfurt, we think of finance. After all, the city is home to the headquarters of the European Central bank and a multitude of financial establishments.

But there's more to the bustling city than meets the eye, and ideal for those looking to book cheap flights and experience the arts. Whether you're looking to take in the sights of the museums, take a river cruise or take a hike within the country's largest in-city forest, Frankfurt is certainly a city to consider for a short break.

Large areas of the city have been rebuilt since the Second World War, however the architecture of the city has managed to keep some of the medieval history whilst being rebuilt - and remains some of the most striking in Europe, with a mix of medieval architecture amongst the high-rise skyscrapers of the financial district.

Frankfurt houses a wide variety of museums and art centres, so there's something for everyone in this bustling city. Frankfurt is also credited as being one of the birthplaces of house music in the early 90's - which is still reflected today in the bustling clubs around the city.

For something a little more serene, Frankfurt also houses two botanical gardens and a number tours that let you explore the surrounding wilderness. Boat trips on the river Rhine are also popular amongst tourists, and allow you to take in the splendour of the many historical buildings on the banks of the Rhine.

With an eclectic mix of history and the arts, Frankfurt has become home to many festivals and international trade fairs - with many tourists taking advantage of cheap flights in order to experience these events - including the Frankfurt Motor Show and the Frankfurt Book Fair (the largest of its kind in the world)

There are a number of festivals in the city which attract visitors from outside. One of the major events is the Museums Riverbank Festival (Museumsuferfest) - which attracts over 3 million visitors over 3 days with live bands, craft stalls and a wide range of food from all over the world - with a spectacular firework display at the end of the festival.

Frankfurt flights touch down at two airports in the city - Frankfurt International and Frankfurt Hahn Airport - both of which are a bus or train journey away from the main city centre.
