Things to do in Frankfurt

Half-timbered houses from 16th-century Frankfurt line the city's central Römerberg square. Gothic tombstones await at the Kaiserdom cathedral, and avant-garde art at the Schirn Kunsthalle. The Ebbelwei Express tram rattles through Frankfurt's skyscraper-studded financial district. Locals relax in the city's exotic Palmengarten park. Most museums open 10am-5pm and close on Monday.
