A perfect weekend in Frankfurt should begin with a Champagne breakfast at one of the most beautiful terraces in the city, the Ehrenhof Terrasse at the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof hotel.

After breakfast, take a stroll around Frankfurt’s city center taking in the great sights, such as the opera house, and sampling the cafés, restaurants and delicatessen shops in nearby Fressgass. Walk on to baroque Hauptwache in the historic Römerberg and marvel at the cathedral. Foodies should visit the Frankfurter Kleinmarkthalle, an indoor market offering the most sought after delicacies of the region – a real gourmet heaven. For the best view of the city visit the terrace of Main Tower, a viewing platform on the building’s 54th floor at an altitude of 660 feet. From here you can see all of the neighboring skyscrapers and far into the Taunus Mountains. Anyone interested in culture should visit at least one of the 30 brilliant museums that range from modern art at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst to the Schirn with its fabulous exhibitions.

In the evening see one of the shows at the award-winning Oper Frankfurt and afterwards have a drink at the nearby 22nd Lounge and Bar, which offers stunning night views over the city.
