When you board your SWISS flight from Singapore to Frankfurt, you embark on a journey to one of Germany's most enticing cities.
Frankfurt is known as the financial capital of Europe, as it is not only home to dozens of banks but also to the European Central Bank as well as the German Stock Market. The financial sector stands out from the rest of the city due to its many skyscrapers, resulting in a skyline unrivaled within Germany. Visit the 200 m tall Main Tower to get an overview of the city, and you will see the many facets Frankfurt has to offer.
Along the Main river, you will find the Museumsufer, a conglomeration of world-class museums all within walking distance from one another. Art, history and science exhibits attract people from around the globe and once a year the city organizes a public festival in this area, known as the Mueseumsuferfest, which brings together musicians, artists, culinary diversity as well as a diverse crowd looking for a good time. Other cultural institutions are the award-winning Frankfurt Opera House as well as the Jahrhunderthalle, both of the hosting musical performances, as well as theater throughout the year.
Architecture aficionados will enjoy the headquarters of the European Central Bank, known for its clear style of Deconstructivism, while also marveling at the Gothic design of the Frankfurt Cathedral. The Zeil is a bustling pedestrian shopping mile right in the heart of Frankfurt and boasts high-class boutiques, as well as fashion chains, restaurants, cafes and local shops.
Relax after a long day of sightseeing and cultural activities, while enjoying a local apple cider and eating some traditional dish, such as the stereotypical German Sauerkraut with pork or the vegetarian Grüne Soße, a special sauce made from different herbs and served cold, often in combination with potatoes and fried eggs.
At night Frankfurt's party crowd meets up in the many restaurants, bars and taverns in the trendy district of Sachsenhausen. Book your flight to Frankfurt with SWISS and explore the fascinating city of Frankfurt. One thing is for sure, once you arrive back in Singapore you will have lots of stories to share with your friends and family.
