For one thing, Frankfurt sponsors the arts with more money than any other European city. You can find many of these along the Main River in the Museumsufer District. Here the exhibits range from architecture to film to the city’s Jewish history. Other attractions include the city zoo and the beautiful Palmengarten, Frankfurt’s botanical garden.
After you’ve seen some art, fauna and flora, you’ll probably want some food and drink. For all the staid businessmen, the city’s bar and club scene is among the best in Europe. In particular, you’ll want to check out the King Kamehameha Club. Why a German music venue is named for a famed Hawaiian monarch is anyone’s guess, but the club is a top stop for local, national and international acts.
