Kronberg im Taunus
Stay on the move to discover new things
Frankfurt is not the first German city that springs to mind for a visit. The image is of the unattractive Manhattan-style bank quarter but the city actually has some charming areas, as I discovered when I hired a bike.

Following the Lieder in Frankfurt
Franktfurt may have a reputation, like many German cities, for being boring. But can you try too hard to be edgy?
Turning Mainhattan into an isle of joy
The city that lent its name to every New Yorker’s favorite street food seems a bit in love with New York. It has even been called “Mainhatten” from being on the Main River and its many skyscrapers.
Where to find your very own glühwein mug
Few countries do Christmas as well as Germany, from where we get so many of the season's customs. Even modern Frankfurt has its districts where you can imbibe the right mood of nostalgia.
