November Layover Activites

by Sunshine64

My friend and I will have about 12 hours between flights in Frankfurt this week. We are en route to a warm vacation spot, but it will likely be quite cool in Frankfurt, so I'm looking for suggestions on what we should do in Frankfurt that won't have us outside most of the time. Aside from visiting the churches, which I have done before, but my friend has not, what would you recommend?

Thank you in advance

Re: November Layover Activites

Frankfurt has dozens of excellent museums about almost everything. Any special interests? Art, dinosaurs, cinema, telecommunication...?

Re: November Layover Activites

Thanks for the quick response, Kathrin_E!

I was thinking about museums, too. I noticed the communications museum. Do you recommend it? Does it include any interactive exhibits? After having flown for almost 12 hours to get there, I am hoping for something that will keep us awake :)

And I'd also seen some brief info on the sculpture museum, which might be interesting?

What about Christmas Markets?

Re: November Layover Activites

by Kathrin_E

Too early for Christmas markets, they begin the week after Eternity Sunday, end of the church year (Nov 22). Many shops will already have their Christmas decorations up, though.

It has been ages since I visited the communications museum, sorry... they have renewed the whole exhibition in the meantime, so I cannot tell.

Art museums include: Städel, the most renowned collection (mostly paintings from medieval to modern, all the big names) Liebieghaus (sculptures, probably the one you are referring to), MMK (modern/contemporary art in a fascinating architecture), Schirn (temporary exhibitions, depends what's on).
The Städel will be rather busy, even more so from Nov 13 when they open the new Botticelli exhibition. Liebieghaus will be quiet, although their collection is high class, too, but not everyone is into sculpture. Depends on your preferences!

Also to be mentioned: Goethe House, Jewish Museum.

Long list of museums with links on the city's website: http://www.frankfurt.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=5021811 (or have you already found this?)

The Liebieghaus (sculpture museum) has a lovely little cafe with really excellent cakes and coffees. It's on the same side of the river as the Städel, so it's easy to visit both museums.

(sorry, the cafe website seems to be just in German)

If you are there on the 13, there is a Botticelli exhibit at the Stadel Museum. Karl

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

Palmengarten

by mauro_pd

Sorry, this should be a "must see" but I have no space anymore :-)
Palmengarten is a bothanical garden located in FFurt; interiors are recreated (with climatic conditions) to host a lot of different kind of plants and flowers; the outside area is a nice park to relax and walk few minutes from downtown but in a "green" environment.
There is also a restaurant but it was closed during Xmas 2002 break :-(
Recently a wonderful Cafe has opened: Sismayer Cafe' ... try it for cakes and delicious outmeals Flowers and plants !!!!!!!

Sculpture in the cathedral

by christine.j

Tourists usually turn left immediately after entering the cathedral and don't see the sculpture on their right. This sculpture shows Jesus on the cross, together with the two criminals executed with him.One of them looks towards Jesus, the other one does not.
The citizens of Frankfurt commissoned this sculpture in the year 1500 and had one criminal- the one that looks away from Jesus - dressed in the costume of the knights at that time. These knights used to ride to Frankfurt and rob the citizens. They used this sculpture to show their fury and contempt and 500 years later we can still see that.

Heusenstamm

by MichaelFalk1969

Heusenstamm is a small, all in all unspectacular town close to Frankfurt. It is worth the visit nonetheless mainly because of the beautiful church St. Cäcilia, built in 1739 by famous architect Balthasar Neumann (who is also responsible for the Würzburger Residenz palace) for the Duchess of Schönborn. The church is decorated with remarkable ceiling frescoes.

Other interesting sights include the Schönborn Palace (now a restaurant and - partly - town hall), the Torbau (city gate) and a few pretty half-timbered houses in the Old Town quarter.
