Frankfurt two days

by jzm77

Hello everybody!!!

We will be in Frankfurt for two days. What activities do you recommend? We will arrive on Oct 8 and depart on October the 11. Are there any special events going on?

Thank you all!!!

The bookfair will be just then. Have you booked your hotel yet? That's the time when hotels are raising their prices and still all of Frankfurt is fully booked.
I recommend going to the bookfair. Unless you're in the book business, you can only go there on the weekend. Go early, as it will be very crowded.
If you don't plan to go there and are free on another weekend, I would change plans and come to Frankfurt later. You'll save a lot of money.

To be honest, there is little to see or do in Frankfurt except for a few nice museums along the water. Two days is probably just enough for that city, and I'd head one day to Wiesbaden which is lovely or to Mainz.

It depends what you're into...
I really enjoyed the Senckenberg Museum - lots of excellent dinosaur skeletons (all the favourites) and dinosaur fossils, and plenty of other interesting natural history exhibits - like a whale's heart and a brain scan of a dolphin, as well as displays featuring birds, plants and some interesting mummies.
If you're interested in that sort of thing, it is a great place to spend a day, and easily reached by public transport from the city centre.
The Science and Technology Museum is also interesting.

Or visit the Jewish Museum then walk the perimeter of the Holocaust Memorial and see the thousands of small plaques each representing a citizen of Frankfurt who died in the Holocaust.

You could also catch the train (or possibly a boat) to Mainz, a short distance up (or is it down?) the river, which is quite a pretty old town and also has the Gutenburg printing museum. Or make a day trip even further along the Rhine and visit picturesque Rudesheim. Plenty of places there to have lunch and or a drink before heading back to Frankfurt.

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

J.W. von Goethe University (Poelzig Building)

by yooperprof

Does the term "Frankfurt School of Social Theory" mean anything to you? Are you a fan of such scholar-critics as Adorno, Horkheimer, Habermas, or Benjamin? Are you a leftish sociologist or cultural historian? If the answer is yes, you'll probably be making a pilgrimage to the J.W. von Goethe University campus, the home of the social science and humanities programs of the Citizens University of Frankfurt.

Or you may just like the interesting atmosphere of a leading university - and the striking building which it inhabits.

By some peculiar quirk or perverse irony, the University is housed in this structure called the I.G. Farben Building. (Farben provided the poison gas used as the Auschwitz concentration camp.) But don't confuse the institution with the structure. The University in Frankfurt has always been much associated with Marxism and Leftish thought, even in the 1920s and 30s, so it's not surprising to learn from the University's website that during the Hitler years "almost one third of its academics and many of its students were dismissed for racial and/or political reasons - more than at any other German university."

The University also played a major role in the 1968 student movement in Germany. This structure is regarded as the masterpiece of influential German architect Hans Poelzig (1869-1936). I was a little startled when I first found out that this building was completed all the way back in 1931! It clean lines and simple - yet largescale - organization of forms seems absolutely contemporary! Poelzig created the building to be the administrative offices of the German chemical conglomerate I.G. Farben. After World War II, the building was turned over to American authorities who used it as an administrative and military base all the way until 1995.

Messeturm

by Polly74

Completed in 1991 according to the plans of the American architect Helmut Jahn, this office tower with its 63 floors and the instantly recognisable top has become Frankfurt’s modern city symbol.
The Messeturm was built according to the design principles of the classic American skyscraper style of the 1920s and 1930s. Messeturm

Language

The national...

by gepard

Language

The national language is German, but locals also speak Frankfurterisch - a dialect related to Hessisch. Frankfurters' speech is direct and uncluttered with elaborate phrasing or subtleties, revealing a pragmatic and sometimes sceptical view of life that has no doubt assisted them in the business world. The city's international importance means that most people involved in business and tourism will speak good English. However, a few words of German by visitors are always well received. A good phrase to remember is 'Stöffche petze', which means to drink apple wine - a regional speciality.

Sachenhausen Tower - Out of the Way Beer Garden

by Weissdorn

When you enter Frankfurt from the south from Darmstadt, you will drive by the old southern watch tower for Frankfurt, the Sachsenhaeuserwarte. It is one of four remaining towers in Frankfurt (Eschersheim, Galluswarte, Bockenheimerwarte). This one contains a beer garden, and it's a rather nice touch of local color. The feature Binding beer, obviiously, because the brewery is just down the street. Right now, it's a great place to go for lunch, because from Monday through Friday they have a choice of 3 different 3 course meals for only 10 Euro!

The tower, which was built in 1470/1471 as the southern watchtower for Frankfurt, is a great romantic background for a nice afternoon lunch.

Turm Palast

by Nemorino

This movie theater at the Eschenheimer Tor, one block north of the Hauptwache in the center of Frankfurt, shows films exclusively in English.

It's a good thing they don't depend on me for their survival, because I have only been there once in thirty-four years. That was just recently to see the original English-language version of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911.

There was an American flag hanging behind glass in one of the front windows of the Turm Palast that evening. Several people with clipboards spoke to those who were going in and asked if they were Americans and were registered to vote. (I was already registered, but several others started filling in forms while I was there.)

Speaking of survival, there have been rumors this year that the Turm Palast might have to close down, but last week the local papers reported that the owner of the building has agreed to lower the rent, thus ensuring the continued operation of the cinema for a while longer, at least.

Update: The Turm Palast closed for good at the end of May 2010, much to the consternation of the American opera singers and other ex-pats in Frankfurt.
