In Germany, all roads lead to Frankfurt. Quite literally: with the country’s largest Autobahn interchange, the busiest train station and the biggest airport, Frankfurt is at the centre of it all. (Even Europe’s internet wires come together here.) And every weekday, hundreds of thousands of commuters turn this 750,000-strong city into a true megapolis.
But while the city’s glass, steel and concrete skyscrapers host the European and international HQs of some of the world’s biggest companies, there’s much more to the city than closed-off corporate cathedrals and men in suits. Beneath the surface you’ll be surprised to discover a truly international city that’s home to people from across the globe – with cultural offerings to suit the needs of the many nationalities that live and work here. So from secret acoustic gigs to English theatre to exceptionally good sushi, here’s our pick of the best restaurants, bars, attractions and other things to do in Frankfurt.
