Can you imagine that Frankfurt alone has more skyscrapers than the rest of Germany taken together? 13 buildings of the city have the height of over 150 meters (493 ft), making Frankfurt the third city in Europe in quantity of skyscrapers after the European tall-building leaders, London and Paris.

However, vibrant Frankfurt is obviously famous not only for its high buildings. This German city is a large cultural and scientific center, having lots of museums, two botanical gardens and one of the most renowned universities in Germany and the world, Goethe University.

The major recreation place worth visiting during your Frankfurt tour is its Museumsufer, set along the banks of the River Main and housing the historic art museum Stadel. To tell the truth, Frankfurt experienced serious damages during World War II and hasn't managed to keep lots of historic highlights.
