The City of Frankfurt Am Main is located in the province of Hesse, and is in constant competition with London to be the financial capital of Europe. The surrounding lands, filled with ancient castles, wooden towns and dark forests to make it the perfect setting for the Brothers Grimm fairy stories, contrast entirely with the modern city's skyscrapers, bank buildings and power structures. The historic Old Town is much more familiar to visitors of other German and European cities, with more traditional architecture, more rustic restaurants, lively nightlife and vibrant club scene. With over thirty museums – twenty of which make up the Museums Riverbank on the River Main – two major botanical gardens, the Alte Oper concert hall, world-class shopping and dining opportunities, and the original Frankenstein Castle making up just a fraction of the attractions to be found in Frankfurt, there's little wonder why it's home to more than 4.3 million visitors every year.
Sachsenhausen – The city's enchanting Old Town was originally founded in 1193 as Frankfurt's bridgehead, and now remains a popular destination thanks to the Museumsufer, where the majority of the museums line the river banks next to the city's largest flea market, the district's renown nightlife, with more than two dozen bars and taverns, and it traditional Ciderhouses that produce their own 'Apfelwein' or Apple wine, which by law must be the cheapest alcohol on sale in any bar. Much of Sachsenhausen-Süd, or South Sachsenhausen, is made up of the Frankfurt City Forest, which can be a welcome and beautiful area of tranquillity in the bustling city.
Bad Homburg vor der Höh – The nearby town of Bad Homburg is among the most affluent in Germany, and is the residential location of choice for the wealthier citizens of Frankfurt. Thus it boasts the finest in restaurants, hotels, golf courses and tennis clubs, spas and a famous casino.
Rüdesheim am Rhein – A UNESCO World heritage site, Rüdesheim is a small wine-making town, just west of Frankfurt, that is filled castles, halls and buildings from a bygone era. The tradition of a town 'Wine Queen' and her princesses is still practised here, where they represent the town among the surrounding wine communities, and the summer festival of their coronation is a highlight of the year.
