Have more time? Want to experience Frankfurt? Although FRA Frankfurt Airport is located outside of the city centre, the train gets you into the city centre quickly and efficiently. There's lots to see and experience, so take advantage of any extra time to see what you can.


Römerberg


Römerberg is the old centre of Frankfurt. It features various buildings and a church from the 14th and 15th century (the buildings were mostly destroyed during World War II but completely rebuilt afterwards). The Römer itself is the town hall of Frankfurt. Cafés and shops can be found at the square itself and in the vicinity. Next to the cathedral, at the Archäologische Garten, you can see the remains of the Roman settlements that gave this place its name. At the Römer, you can also visit the Alte Nikolaikirche (12th century church, current form since the 15th century). Walking towards the Main river, you can also see the Rententurm (Wharfinger's Tower), an old 15th century fortified tower in late Gothic style, which is connected to the Saalhof, an old 12th century castle building that was later modernized but never completely destroyed.


Museumsufer


More than 10 museums are clustered in a district called Museumsufer. To get there, take the subway to Schweizer Platz (southern bank) or Willy-Brandt-Platz (northern bank), then walk towards the Main river. You can see the downtown skyscrapers when you leave the station Schweizer Platz, that's the direction you have to take. If you want to visit more than just one or two, the MuseumsuferCard costs EUR 75 and gets you into 33 museums in Frankfurt for a whole year. Note: Museums are generally closed on Mondays (there are exceptions).


Mainhattan – the Frankfurt Skyline


Frankfurt has some of the tallest buildings in Europe. The skyline is the reason why Frankfurt is sometimes called by the nickname Mainhattan. When you approach the city from the airport via the subway, stay to the right side of the train. Just before the train approaches the Frankfurt central station it enters a big curve, and from here you will have a nice first glance of the skyline. For further views of the skyline try the Main river bridges; the eastern bridges offer the best view. Take a walk from Schweizer Platz northwards for another good view of the skyscrapers. The Main Tower (Subway station Willy-Brandt-Platz or S-Bahn-station Taunusanlage) is the only high-rise that is open to the public: for EUR 5, you can take the elevator to the viewing platform at a height of 200 meters.


As always, make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to FRA Frankfurt Airport and clear security in time for your connecting flight. Enjoy your transit city rather than whiling away the time leaning up against your luggage in the departures lounge.
