Budget design hotels in Frankfurt – your Motel One
Are you interested in observing the “bull vs. bear” fight for yourself? The ups and downs of the DAX are the centre of attention at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. These glass towers house Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank and the European Central Bank, whose striking, new building towers over the Ostend district.
The city at the centre of the Rhine-Main area also owes its economic success to its international airport, which you can reach effortlessly from our Motel One Frankfurt-Airport. By the way: Germany’s largest airport is well worth a visit even if you aren't about to take off. A tour of the facilities allows you to view the jumbo jets up close.
You may think that Frankfurt is all about stock indices, skyscrapers and big business. But there's more. Hesse's largest city has a rich historical heritage and a great deal of culture to offer – and don't forget about “Äppelwoi”, the beloved local apple wine. The latter might be a factor in the surprisingly laid-back attitude of Frankfurt's inhabitants. Do feel free to enjoy Sachsenhausen until the wee hours and sample the glory that is Äppelwoi: we will happily welcome you to our design hotel even late at night.
The Römer, the town hall, St Paul's Church – highlights of a true metropolis
If you can tear your eyes away from the glittering skyline, you will be rewarded with a plethora of impressive sights. For example:
- the Römer, which doubles as the town hall and symbol of the city
- the renowned Städel Museum at the Museumsufer
- the fascinating exhibitions at the Schirn Kunsthalle
- the historic St Paul's Cathedral
- the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History
- the Palmengarten and the Frankfurt Botanics
- and, of course, Goethe House, the family residence of Goethe.
Frankfurt is also home to one of Germany's largest universities, named after the city's most famous son: Johann Wolfgang Goethe University. Its presence injects a generous dose of the student lifestyle into Germany's financial capital – this is especially visible in the Westend, Gallusviertel and Bockenheim districts. While others are already busy completing business deals over lunch, the young people of these areas are still relaxing in cafés and enjoying their breakfast.
