The flea market at Schaumainkai is held on Saturdays from 9-2.

Re: flea market

The fleamarket used to be on Schaumainkai all Saturday mornings, but since about a year or two this has changed. It's now held on Schaumainkai every two Saturdays, and in the Saturdays in between it's held on Lindleystrasse, near Osthafen.
To get there, you have to take the tram #11 to Osthafenplatz or Schwerdlerstrasse and then turn right. It's a one minute walk to the fleamarket.

The dates for the fleamarket are known until April 2010, if you're coming to Frankfurt in this period, I can tell you when the fleamarket will be there. Tomorrow it's held at Lindleystrasse.

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

Ambiente

by Scandic

This was a totally new world to me... Exhibition with anything that you can imagine. I saw so funny fridges there, and fascinat toys that I wanted to be a child again. There where hundreds of exhibitors and all of them wanted me to be interested them goods. Unfortunately I wasn't a buyer, I was just a freepassager;)

But if you visit in Frankfurt while Ambiente, try to catch a ticket to go there. It's an marvellous experience. With 600 participating suppliers – and a constantly increasing tendency - nmedia is not only the oldest but also the biggest business-to-business marketplace of the industries lifestyle, giftware, living, promotional articles and toys and games in Europe. In addition, nmedia.de is the first in its industry in Europe to connect the inventory control and ERP systems of buyers and suppliers via the marketplace and to offer an integrated solution for online ordering.

Public Art - Lessing Memorial

by yooperprof

I haven't been able to discover any personal connection between Gotthold Ephraim Lessing and the city of Frankfurt, but it's nice that this great author is remembered here.

Lessing (1729-1781) was one of the most important figures of the German Enlightenment, a philosopher, poet and playwright, a staunch Liberal, and a believer in social and religious freedoms. He was certainly one of Goethe's inspirations, and so it's appropriate that Lessing's statue is not a long walk away from Goethe's house here.

Packing List

by acemj

Make sure you bring plenty of film to capture the beauty of the city. Pictured is the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew. Camera equipment isn't cheap here, some come prepared. Don't plan to buy it all here.

Mainz

by antistar

About 30 minutes away from Frankfurt by S-Bahn is the beautiful and relaxed city of Mainz. The city has a long history, going all the way back to Roman times, as well as witnessing the birth and life of one of the world's most influential people: Johannes Gutenberg. Gutenberg, of course, was the inventor of the printing press, a device which revolutionised human thinking by allowing for an explosive spread of ideas across the world.

Mainz celebrates Gutenberg with the fantastic Gutenberg museum, which contains the original Gutenberg Bible. This amazing book cost the city millions to bring back from a foreign collector, and now sits in a vault behind tight security consisting of closed-circuit cameras, lasers, and hawk eyed and super serious guards.

The museum is worth a trip on its own, but Mainz has more to offer, including one of Germany's finest Cathedrals. It's also a great place to start the Rhine river tour.

Frankfurt skyline and trade fair from the west

by Nemorino

Here's part of the Frankfurt skyline from an unusual vantage point, namely from the Emser Bridge going over and through the grounds of the Frankfurt Trade Fair.

Since an airplane has recently flown past, it looks as though the Messeturm is a huge pencil that has just drawn a long white line across the sky.

Other tall buildings from left to right: Pollux, Trianon, Frankfurt B?ro Center, City-Hause (the darkest-looking one), Westendstra?e 1, Commerzbank Tower, Silver Tower.

The fat silvery building in the foreground on the left side of the picture is exhibition hall number 3 (Messehalle 3) of the Frankfurt Trade Fair. This huge hall is reputed to be the widest spanning and largest column-free space in Europe. It was built in seventeen months from March 2002 to July 2003, and was first used for a trade fair in August 2003.

I was able to observe the day-by-day construction progress of this building because I used to cycle over the Emser Bridge every day on my way to work. I have also been inside Hall 3 during the Frankfurt Book Fair. It is indeed huge however you look at it, from inside or out.

Second photo: Inside the big new exhibition hall # 3 during the Frankfurt Book Fair 2005.

Third photo: On the patio at the upper level of exhibition hall # 3 on a foggy day during the Book Fair.
