Tailor-made Trips to Frankfurt
Frankfurt is a true metropolis. Rebuilt after the war, the skyline is hi-tech, high-rise and innovative. With the Stock Exchange and the European Central Bank located here, the city is the financial capital of Germany and after Brexit is tipped to rival London as Europe's financial centre.
Visit during December and it is the historic quarter of the city around Romerberg which takes centre stage as it holds one of the largest Christmas Markets in Germany. The scenic surroundings and festive atmosphere makes this an extra special time to see what the city has to offer.
Alongside it's financial heart, the city spends more on the arts than any other city in Europe and has the best range of museums in the country after Berlin. This makes Frankfurt the ideal school trip destination for Business and Economics students and also those studying Art and Design.

Reasons to Visit
The Römerberg is Frankfurt’s old central square. Ornately gabled half-timbered buildings, reconstructed after WWII, give an idea of how beautiful the city’s medieval core once was. In the square's centre is the Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen ; in 1612, at the coronation of Matthias, the fountain ran with wine. This area makes a lovely contrast to modern high rise skyline of the city.
Frankfurt’s historical old town is brightly illuminated by thousands of fairy lights reflecting off the windows of the square’s traditional half-timbered houses. With the scent of baked apples, chestnuts, gingerbread and mulled wine the Frankfurt Christmas Market will give your students the opportunity to experience a traditional European Christmas market.
Frankfurt's skyline wouldn't be the same without the Main Tower, one of the tallest and most distinctive high-rises in town. A great place to get a feel for ‘Mainhattan’ is 200m above street level, on the observation platform reached by lift in a mere 45 seconds. Be prepared for airport-type security. It closes during thunderstorms.
Main River Cruise
Enjoy Frankfurt's stunning skyline aboard a cruise ship on the Main River. The beautiful old houses opposite the city on the Museumsufer, the cathedral and historical museum, the skyscrapers and the green river banks. You will see all this from a tour on the river. The onboard audio commentary in English tells you about history and the highlights you pass long the cruise.
The Jewish Museum in the Rothschild Palais in Frankfurt presents the historical development and the social and religious life of Jewish communities in Frankfurt from the 12th to the 20th century. Two exhibitions are available, one looks at the development of the Jewish community and the second presents the history of the Jews in Germany.
Day Trip to Heidelberg
Heidelberg castle is the centrepiece of all the famous views of this town. The castle is made up of various magnificent buildings dating from different periods. Despite its ruined condition, enough of its original splendour remains to make it well worth a visit.
Schwetzingen Castle and Gardens
The origins of Schwetzingen Palace lie in a small knightly water palace and extend over an eventful history up to its greatest period of courtly splendour under the government of Elector Carl Theodor (1724-1799). The then summer residence lies in the midst of a complex of palace gardens unequalled in all of Europe.
This is Frankfurt's most prestigious gallery and houses an impressive collection of German and Dutch Masters.
Museum of Communication
