Frankfurt

In Germany all roads lead to Frankfurt: it is where the major autobahn’s and railways connect as well as being home to the second largest airport in Europe, so it is the perfect place to start or end any Central European excursion. Visitors tend to gloss over Frankfurt not realising that it is home to some of Europe’s finest museums, many of which are clustered around the banks of the Main. If you have a particular interest it’s highly probable Frankfurt has a museum for you: architecture, film, communication, art, cultures, nature and even leather - they can all be found here. In fact, the whole city is one big living museum!
