Interesting facts about Frankfurt:
The trade fair city

Frankfurt isn’t just famous for its modern skyline. The city boasts a rich tapestry of cultural and historical landmarks. Among them is the Römerberg—a popular destination for tourists. Frankfurt is also home to the Goethe House, the birthplace of the renowned German poet. For leisurely excursions into the countryside, the Palm Garden, Botanical Garden, and city forest are perfect options.

But if all you want to do is unwind after a day at the trade fair, Frankfurt has you covered. From hearty specialties to traditional Frankfurt restaurants like Apfelwein Dax, you’ll find no shortage of options. And for a breathtaking view of Frankfurt’s skyline, head to elegant bars like Long Island Summer. Need help planning your itinerary? Our experts are here to assist you. Feel free to reach out to us.

Have you already organised your trade fair visit in Frankfurt and are now wondering if you should extend your trip a little? Spend some time exploring this beautiful city on the River Main. A boat trip, for example, offers you an excellent opportunity to explore the city outside the exhibition halls.

A real insider tip for a special experience is to visit the Nordend district, known for its intimate cafés, bars and restaurants. Besides the great vibe, the international delicacies entice you to spend some time there. But if it’s a bit of culture you’re looking for, you should put the Schauspielhaus Frankfurt or the Opera House on your list. Both are internationally renowned and feature first-class performances in their programmes.

Is this your first visit to Frankfurt? Then you should not miss a visit to the historic district, the “Altstadt”. The Römerberg with its historic buildings and the Kaiserdom St. Bartholomäus (St. Bartholomew Imperial Cathedral) are definitely among the highlights. We can also recommend the Städel Museum for one of Germany’s most renowned art collections, with works by Rembrandt, Monet and Picasso.

Do you need some more suggestions? Feel free to contact us, we have more tips for you. We will gladly plan the location of your hotel to accommodate the travel activities you are planning.

Want to wind down after your day at the fair but you don’t know where to go?

We could offer you some recommendations: for instance, the Frankfurt restaurant Apfelwein Wagner. Famous for its “Ebbelwoi” (apple cider), it offers hearty specialities on its menu. We would in particular recommend the “Frankfurter Grüne Sauce” (Frankfurt Green Sauce) and the “Handkäs mit Musik” (regional cheese with onions and vinaigrette). This restaurant is also a favourite with the locals.

Another traditional Frankfurt restaurant to put on your list is the “Apfelwein Dax”. The furnishing is rustic and traditional, while the menu offers a selection of “Rippchen mit Sauerkraut” (pork cutlets with Sauerkraut) and the “Handkäs mit Musik”.

Vegans and vegetarians are also looked after in Frankfurt, namely at the “Vevay”. Here, innovative and creative dishes are prepared using fresh and seasonal ingredients. An open kitchen and bar provide a modern and trendy ambience. Particular highlights are the “Vevay Bowls”, which combine different types of vegetables, protein elements and dressings.

And if you’re looking for an elegant bar, the Long Island Summer Lounge is a good choice. Here you have a breath-taking view of the Frankfurt skyline while your bartender mixes delicious cocktails and long drinks for you.

Whether by train, plane or car – to make your journey easier, we have compiled all the essential information for you. Our objective is for you to get to your hotel and the trade fair quickly and comfortably. Should you require any further assistance over and above this, our team will be happy to assist you personally.

Would you like to see something of Frankfurt as soon as you arrive? You can also walk to the exhibition grounds from the main station – it takes ten minutes. The Messeturm with its pyramid-shaped top is your landmark.

Arriving by tram and bus:

Would you like to remain flexible and travel to the fair by public transport? The following options are available to you:

  • Are you going by underground (tube)? This is your metro route:

  • Are you going by tram? These are your routes:
