> centre will be "closed " for this period
No. But you should be able to find good rates with the business hotels for this period.

Shops: closed on Su. 27th Dec. and 1st Jan. and on 31st Dec. from early afternoon on.
On the other days: mayhem (people use their gift vouchers from Christmas, or exchange gifts, etc.)

restaurants: on the 31st evening/night you better reserve

zoo: open every day
http://www.zoo-frankfurt.de/index_e.html

museums: closed on Mondays (28. Dec.) the 31st. Dec. and some also on the 1st Jan. Albeit the policy on this can differ from museum to museum. And mostly this is not yet published on their homepages.
http://www.frankfurt-tourismus.de/cms/tourismussuite/en/culture_leisure_recreation/museums_gallery/

river cruises: none with the exception of a NYE (Silvester) cruise on the 31st December. EUR 109 per person with festive several course menu incl. free drinks (wine, beer, non-alcoholics).

I would consider visiting Munich instead since it's in more of a tourist area. You could make short day trips to Nuremburg and Garmisch-Partenkirchen among many other places. There will be some closures regardless of which destination you pick. Gary

If you base yourself in Frankfurt, Heidelberg and Mainz could be nice day trips. Nuremburg would be a pretty long day trip. Gary

Hi Gary....have had a look at both cities you suggest and both look good....will be spoilt for choice !..Train travel time from Frankfurt to Nuremburg showing as 2 hours direct tho'...roughly same as from Munich [2.17 with 1 change] ...so looks do-able in a day
Thanks again for your help

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

Walk around-i think that's the...

by shalin

Walk around-i think that's the best way to get the feel of a foreign place.(and...er,sorry for repeating it in all my pages!:) Visiting streetside flea markets,eating Bratwurst
(a thick German sausage with some special type of Bread)for lunch,grabbing HUGE bags of some deliciously flavoured popcorn as a snack,and eating dinner really late!(as you can see..food figures everywhere!!:)

It was great fun being in a place,where the language is alien to you(even though most people do speak english!:),and where you have to somehow figure out where to go,and how to get there..lots of excitement!:)

Skyscrapers

by micas_pt

Frankfurt's skyline is dominated by skyscrapers, near its historic center/ downtown unlike some other German and European cities who restrict these constructions around historical areas. Due to its inumerous skyscrapers, and also because Frankfurt is bathed by River Main, it is often called Mainhattan or Chicago am Main.

The reason for Frankfurt's skyscrapers is related to WWII bombings. The historic centre of the city was highly damaged by bombs, and only part of the main landmarks were rebuilt. So, it was easier to approve the construction of high buildings than in other cities whose historic centre was well preserved.

The first skyscrapers date from late 1960s and are still not well accepted by locals.

Frankfurt's Revamped Wellness Spa

by Weissdorn

The Rebstockbad was the absolute swimming pool, the non-plus-ultra for Frankfurt, when it opened in the 1980's, with its wave pool with meandering underwater way connecting the pools, and an outdoor message fountain! Then in the 90's the city of Frankfurt made a grave mistake with respect to it's regular pool fans – they felt sorry for the town's welfare recipients, because they couldn't afford to have a real vacation. So they gave them free passes to the Rebstockbad. It's hard to say this here, because I don't necessarily believe that a person's income determines their amount of respect for other people's property – but there was a direct constellation between the poor quality of the water, the number of thefts and the general condition and amount of noise in the Rebstockbad and number of free passes the welfare department issued.
Finally the pool was becoming so run-down, that the city re-invested in 2003 and reopened the Rebstockbad. Now the Rebstockbad is also known as the “Aloha-Bad” and has been expanded to include the following facilities: Pools include: non-swimmer pool, kiddie pool, wave pool, outdoor pool, diving pool (up to 5 m), water slide (120 m long), The Black Hole water slide (125 m long), and outdoor play ground.

The Sauna area, which costs extra includes a dragon's breath steam room (45°C), the Geisha sanarium (a sanarium is for people who think a sauna is too dry for them – 60°C), the Tokyo Sauna (80°C), the Samurai Sauna (85°C), the Shogun Sauna (90°C), the Kyoto Sauna (95°C), the outdoor Lotus Sauna (95C°), the Bonsai Sauna (100°C), the Snow Chamber (-15°C), the Lotus Pond (outdoors), a whirlpool, a quiet resting room, a glassed-in patio, and a Mongolian Sauna.
For an extra charges you can now receive entrance to the hot whirlpool garden, Turkish steam bath, get a regular or a reflex-zone message. They also have baby-sitting, an indoor restaurant and a sauna health-food bar.

Please remember that beach shoes are required for the sauna area.

Prices
The pool costs 4.00 Euro for the first hour, and 0.50 Euro for every consecutive hour.

The sauna center costs 7.00 Euro for the first hour, and 3.00 Euro for every consecutive hour.

Comical Art (4): Owl with norwegian sweater

by MichaelFalk1969

No big sight, but nice to know: This charming wooden sculpture after a drawing by the late artist F.K. Waechter shows an owl with a norwegian sweater. It can be found in the Stadtwald, along the "Grüngürtelpfad" (hiking/cycling path), high in the trees.

Location: pretty difficult to find. Get out at tram station "Oberschweinstiege", follow the sign "Goetheturm" along the paved road, then follow the sign "Jacobiweiher" to the right. Walk 5 minutes along the lake until you find the bridge. The owl is before the bridge in the trees on the left.
