Frankfurt, like so many German cities, has a rich history that seeps from its historic buildings. It was one of the major centres of the Holy Roman Empire, the place where emperors were crowned. In modern times it has become one of Europe's financial capitals with its own stock exchange. It is also a leading educational hub, home of the renowned Goethe Institute, and a cultural and entertainment experience to be remembered.

Cultural and sporting diversity in Frankfurt
Opera lovers count this western German city as a premier destination, and with good reason. Here you can visit one of the seminal opera houses in Europe, now rebuilt and named Alte Oper Frankfurt (simply "Old Opera"). It was the city's original opera house, where some of the world's most loved operas have debuted since the 1880s. Music and festivals have always been in plentiful supply here, and it's also a utopia for book lovers: the Frankfurt Book Fair has become the world's largest of its kind. Similarly, the Frankfurt Motor Show has achieved world-leading status in its field. For those looking for sports events, Eintracht Frankfurt is the city's main football team. Surprisingly, this is also home to three clubs that play American football in a thriving German professional league!
Exploring the finest venues in Frankfurt
Getting hold of Frankfurt event tickets is a cinch – the real challenge is deciding what to choose in a city that offers so much. Music fans have watched everyone from international superstars like Pink to evergreen local legends at Commerzbank Arena, which is also the venue for Bundesliga football matches. Festhalle Frankfurt offers a more varied experience as a multipurpose indoor arena. Look for comedy shows, spoken word events and big rock concerts. Those seeking more intimate experiences will find many smaller theatres and concert halls in and around the city. Die Fabrik Frankfurt has established a fine reputation for jazz sessions and traditional music performers from across Europe. You can walk around the city with ease and it's well worth a few strolls down its main shopping thoroughfares. For the well-heeled, Goethestraße has almost as many top-end boutiques as New York's 5th Avenue, or spend a few hours at Frankfurt's biggest market, Kleinmarkthalle. This is also an official "green city", so there are plenty of relaxing countrified spaces where you can take a breather before moving on to the next attraction.
