In addition to its impressive skyline and beautifully restored old town, the so-called "Mainhattan" has a diverse excursion & cultural programme to offer. We present the highlights here.
The Städel Museum is one of the oldest and most renowned museum foundations in Germany.
Visitors can gain an almost complete overview of 700 years of European art history. The collection in Frankfurt am Main comprises around 3,100 paintings, 660 sculptures, over 5,000 photographs and over 100,000 drawings and graphics. Highlights include works by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Sandro Botticelli, Rembrandt van Rijn, Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso.
The Schirn Kunsthalle in the old town of Frankfurt am Main, is located in the heart of Frankfurt and hard to miss. The Schirn was opened in 1986, since then over 200 exhibitions have been presented. Only temporary exhibitions are presented, so regular visits are never boring. As an art gallery, the Schirn also enjoys an international reputation, which it has acquired through various exhibition cooperations with museums such as the Centre Pompidou, the Tate Gallery, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg or the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The collection of the Museum of Modern Art represents over 5,000 contemporary works of art. Meanwhile, there are even two more offshoots in Frankfurt, the Zollamt MMK and the Tower MMK. The MMK has one of the most internationally renowned collections of contemporary art and is thus one of the most important institutions for modern art in Germany.
Important world stars of classical music, such as internationally renowned conductors, soloists, ensembles and orchestras, are regular guests at the Alte Oper Frankfurt. But shows, musicals and festivals are also an integral part of the Alte Oper's calendar of events. In addition to performances by renowned artists from the worlds of pop, rock and world music, the Alte Oper Frankfurt also hosts regular series of events such as the JAZZnights, featuring world jazz stars such as Dave Brubeck, Cassandra Wilson and Chick Corea.
Schauspiel Frankfurt is the largest theater in the Rhine-Main region with the richest tradition and also receives much attention as a high-profile stage throughout Germany. Anselm Weber is the theater's artistic director. Renowned directors such as Mateja Koležnik, Jan Bosse, Felicitas Brucker, David Bösch, Jan-Christoph Gockel, Barbara Bürk, Johanna Wehner, and Roger Vontobel bring a colorful potpourri of classics and contemporary drama to the stage.
The Frankfurt Opera is one of the most important music theaters in Europe. It has been named Opera House of the Year several times (most recently in 2020). The artistic director of the Frankfurt Opera is Bernd Loebe, and there has been a permanent ensemble since 1792. Oper Frankfurt is known for innovative repertoires that traditionally include German premieres and world premieres. The world-famous "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff, for example, was premiered at Oper Frankfurt.
The English Theatre Frankfurt is the largest English-language theater in mainland Europe. Founded in 1979, it is also the third oldest in the DACH region after Vienna's English Theatre (1963) and the English Theatre of Hamburg (1976). The English Theatre Frankfurt serves a wide variety of genres, from comedies and parodies to thrillers and crime stories, dramas and tragedies as well as musicals, so a varied program is guaranteed.
Portikus is a real insider tip in Frankfurt am Main, the rust-colored house stands on an island in the Main and can only be reached via the Alte Brücke. Since its founding in 1987, the house has been dedicated to exhibiting, publishing and discussing young and emerging as well as established artists and their works, and has quickly become an institution for contemporary art in Frankfurt am Main. Guided tours are offered upon request.
Many people know that Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born and grew up in Frankfurt am Main. He spent his childhood and much of his youth living in the house on Großer Hirschgraben until 1775, when he moved to Weimar at the invitation of Hereditary Prince Carl August of Saxony Weimar-Eisenach. In Frankfurt am Main Goethe created some impressive early works, including 'Goetz von Berlichingen', the original version of 'Faust' and 'The Sorrows of Young Werther', which made him world famous. In the original furnished residence, the family life of the Goethes and the Frankfurt of the 18th century come alive, in a unique atmosphere.
Tucked away deep in Frankfurt's posh West End, adjacent to Frankfurt's Palmengarten, you'll find the city's Botanical Garden. Here you can find on more than 8 hectares various flowers, trees, shrubs and plants from different countries of the world. Because of the large number of plants, the garden is also visited by birds and insects that you would not normally expect to find in a large city. Originally created in 1763 as a university garden, it is now open to the public free of charge and is a real paradise for all visitors.
The 22-hectare Palm Garden is home to plants from all over the world, historic trees, grasses and bodies of water, art and culture - the Palm Garden is a place that is unique in Frankfurt am Main. Nearly 13,000 plant species grow in the open and in partly historical greenhouses. Various exhibitions, events and musical performances make the Palmengarten a year-round excursion tip in Frankfurt am Main.
With its exotarium and nocturnal animal house, Frankfurt Zoo is one of the most important in Europe. In the heart of Frankfurt, you can experience more than 500 animal species up close. The protection of nature and species is also reflected in the zoo's motto: Experience animals - preserve nature. For example, visitors can learn about the Manchurian crane, Asian lion or the bearded vulture, which is endangered in Europe.
In the heart of Frankfurt am Main, not far from the famous Berger Strasse, lies Bethmannpark, a highlight for people who love gardens. Relax between flower installations, meadows and old trees, play a round of chess or just enjoy the sun on the countless park benches. Even Goethe is said to have strolled along here and emperors and kings also stayed here. The von Bethmann family acquired the garden around 1783 and redesigned it several times. Secret tip: Hidden behind white walls lies the Chinese Garden - in the middle of Bethmann Park. In 1989, Chinese experts created it with original imports from China: pavilions with curved pagodas, filigree bridges over the japis green pond with water lilies and a lotus rock.
