Euro & The Banking City Walking Tour
Frankfurt has gained widespread renown as an international traffic and transport hub, finance centre and trade show location. The Main metropolosis lies at the heart of the Rhine-Main region and is one of Europe's most productive and dynamic locations. Its development from a medieval trading centre to its current position as a modern and pulsating finance metropolis is at the core of this themed tour.
Finance, Business & Euro Metropolis Walking Tour
From a medieval trade city to a modern finance metropolis, present-day Frankfurt has gained wide renown as the seat of Germany's most active stock market and the European Central Bank. Sights include the European Central Bank and the German Federal Bank.
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.
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.
