Vacation rentals in Frankfurt
The Main metropolis offers a wide range of holiday accommodations, from modern apartments and cosy holiday apartments to vacation rentals in the middle of greenery. Anyone who wants to experience the metropolis, also known as Mainhatten, as originally as possible will move into a holiday apartment in the pulsating centre. You will find what you are looking for, especially on the banks of the Main in the city centre near the zoo, in Sachsenhausen-Nord and in the Frankfurt West end near the Palmengarten. Thanks to the closely interlinked bus and S-Bahn network, you can reach every corner of Frankfurt from there within less than 30 minutes. You also benefit from the walking distance to the numerous museums, restaurants and shopping facilities in the city centre.A vacation rental on the outskirts of town
You like it a little quieter? Then you should look around on the search for a vacation home or an apartment in the outskirts of Frankfurt. You will live in the Nordweststadt as well as in the districts Frankfurter Berg, Heddenheim and Niederursel, where you will find your accommodation right at the foot of the picturesque Taunus, which is ideal for hikers, mountain bikers and racing cyclists. In addition, it is only a few hundred metres from your vacation rental to the nearest S-Bahn station, where you can reach the city centre in no time at all. Since many vacation rentals also have their own gardens, a quarter on the outskirts of the city is ideal for families and holidays with dogs.
Holidays in Frankfurt
Travelers and Activities
Thanks to its location in the shade of the Feldberg mountain on the southern foothills of the Taunus, Frankfurt is an ideal holiday region for cyclists who want to try their hand at the crisp climbs and rapid descents. If, on the other hand, you want to take it a little more leisurely, you can take the Main cycle path and combine your active holiday with a variety of cultural sights. Alternatively you change the perspective and explore the idyllic course of the Main by kayak or canoe from the water. The offer is rounded off by a game of golf on the championship course in the Niederrad district. Depending on the season, sports fans can look forward to a visit to the Eintracht Frankfurt stadium, the Skyliners and the DEL team's ice rink.On the way in the pulsating nightlife
Since the American occupation after the Second World War, Frankfurt has been known for its notorious nightlife. The broadly diversified offer ranges from rustic "Äpplerwirtschaften" like the "Aatschel" and the "Fichtekränzi" in the district of Sachsenhausen to elegant clubs like the "Living XXL" in the basement of the European Central Bank. If you like hard techno beats, the U-60311 and the Cocoon Club, which is one of the most impressive techno clubs in the world, are your best bet. A secret tip, however, are the alternative student restaurants in the Bockheim district and the still young bar scene near the Goethe House.
Things to know
Not least because of its status as a trade fair city and its numerous cultural sights, Frankfurt is worth a visit all year round. If you are planning your holiday in Frankfurt during the fair, you should book your vacation rental or apartment as early as possible. Nevertheless, the peak travel season extends from May to September, when on average up to eight hours of sunshine per day are luring the local population and the mercury often breaks the 25 degree mark. Active holidaymakers also make particular use of July, August and September, when the number of rainy days is the lowest.Regular events
Just like in neighbouring Mainz, the event season in Frankfurt begins with the traditional street carnival in February, during which the streets are transformed into a madhouse for costumed fools. The Dippemess, which takes place every autumn and spring, attracts more than two million visitors to the city every year and has been the most famous folk festival in the region since the Middle Ages. Other highlights are the Höchster Schlossfest in July and the Skyscraper Festival. Culture lovers can also look forward to the Night of the Museums in April.
The classic hotdog sausages are also called frankfurters in the USA.
Top 5 travel tips
Anyone who immediately thinks of Frankfurt sausages when mentioning the name Frankfurt is in the right place, because the hearty treat is part of every visit to the Main metropolis. You should also try specialities such as "Frankfurter Grüne Sauße", "Rippchen mit Kraut", "Handkäs mit Musik" and a glass of delicious apple wine (Ebbelwoi) made from seven herbs.Breathtaking view from the Main Tower
Inaugurated in January 2000, the Main Tower is one of the city's tallest buildings with a total height of 240 meters and is also Frankfurt's landmark. Take the elevator to a lofty height and catch a breathtaking view of Frankfurt from a height of 200 metres while you enjoy your lunch in the Main Tower Restaurant.Pure culture on the Museumsufer
In hardly any other place in Germany can you find so many museums in such a small area as along the Frankfurt Museumsufer. Among the 13 museums that you can easily reach from your vacation rental are the German Film Museum, the World Cultures Museum, the German Architecture Museum and the Liebieghaus Sculpture Collection.Be a pilot once
Frankfurt has one of the largest air hubs in the world. But did you know that you can also climb into the cockpit of an Airbus A380 yourself? Make your dream of flying come true and visit the Full Flight Simulator. Climb a detailed replica of the original cockpit and let an experienced flight coach introduce you to the handling of the aircraft, with which you set off on a flight of several hours to a virtual destination of your choice.A visit to Frankfurt Zoo
Young visitors in particular will get their money's worth by taking a detour to Frankfurt Zoo. Get up close with the big five of the African savannah, visit the chimpanzees and explore the largest nocturnal animal house in Europe, where you will encounter numerous nocturnal animals such as bats and aardvarks. While the little ones let the visit to the zoo end in the petting zoo, the older ones relax in the cosy beer garden on the zoo grounds.
