In resent times, a lot of European tourist better like to have several shorter, lasting no longer then 4 days, trips, instead of one. Using that option, during our work leave, we will be able to explore a lot more places. Also, it is perfect option for all of us, who aren’t able to take entire week of at work. If you are one of those individuals, and you like to have very pleasant time some place nice, you should visit Frankfurt. This city over the Main river, has a lot to offer to each type of traveler (so do not wait and book a flight!).
Mode of transportation
Even if this place is part of Germany, our western neighbor, it is very far away on west from Polish border. Because of that, if you decide to travel by car or bus, your journey will took at least for five hours. A little faster will be train, cause railway tracks are in good shape in Germany, but this option is only profitable if you are a student with special discount. In that case, the fastest and the cheapest option for you will be airplane. Thanks to small airline companies, which are very common since Poland is in European Union, we can book flight in very reasonable price. But to do so, you need to do it several months before trip, cause this connection is very popular.
Frankfurt is great example of a city, in which ancient history meets with urban style. The newest part of it is filled wit tall scrapers, in which all important corporations have their headquarter. This city is important merchant area, so it is not surprising. You can take a ride in elevator to the top of Commerzbank Tower, the tallest building in the city. The panorama up in there is amazing. If you better like more classical architecture, Frankfurt will please you. You definitely need to take a walk on Romerberg, main square of the city, with city hall in the middle of it. It was totally ruined during World war two’s bombing, but it was rebuild from the very beginning. Also, in this city you will see nice temples of many various religions – Orthodox, Jew, Catholic, protestant and even Muslim.
Even though Frankfurt is not the most popular city in Europe, and even in Germany, it is still worth to be seen, mostly for longer weekend. you will see in there many interesting monuments – Renaissance city hall, Gothic temples, modern skyscrapers and many more. If you like to travel fast and for a song, you should find some nice deal on flights from Poland to Germany, the best is to book it several months ahead. Trip like that will took only two hours.
