Beauty surrounds us this week in the Free City of Frankfurt where excitement mounts in anticipation of Ambiente 2018 – the world’s leading international trade fair for the consumer goods industry. We are honoured to have travelled to this amazing city, a global hub for commerce, culture, education, tourism and transportation.
There is so much to behold in this city, steeped in cultural history and diversity. Where do we even begin! A simple stroll through the area ignites a passion for the beauty that is found on every corner. Here are some of the highlights! The Dom-Römer-Project: Also known as Neue Frankfurter Altstadt, the Dom-Römer-Project refers to a major urban development project in the old town of Frankfurt am Main. The newly built area is historically important, among other things by the coronation of the Roman-German kings and emperors along the street Alter Markt.
The café bar in Kunstverein: Located directly next door to the Frankfurter Kunstverein’s exhibition spaces, the café bar in Kunstverein perfectly combines the world of culture and gastronomy. The spacious cafe boasts an interior surface of 150 m², a ceiling height of 4 meters, large windows, and an expansive terrace which is simply beautiful!
Iimori Patisserie: The antique furnishings, opulent wallpapers, and filigreed chandeliers create a very special coffeehouse atmosphere that you simply must experience for yourself. Japanese, French, and German elements come together in this crossover bakery where fresh, natural ingredients are transformed into unique and flavourful treats!
Margarete: International hospitality with Frankfurt roots: The Margarete restaurant is situated in the historic centre of Frankfurt. A young Frankfurt restaurant but already a classic for German new cuisine, international standards and a Mediterranean touch.
Bitter & Zart Chocalaterie: Bitter & Zart, near the Frankfurt cathedral, is worth a meander off the Römerplatz, either to shop for chocolate treasures or to linger over a cake and coffee.
Last Century Modern: “Last Century Modern” is not a typical gallery, museum or art venue. It is located very close to many little galleries and the Museum of Modern Art on Braubachstraße but in itself, is a quirky little shop worth the visit.
Branco Azul: Find many hidden treasures within this bespoke store in Frankfurt with authentic home decor, textiles and more!
Galerie Braubachstrasse 9: No visit to Frankfurt would be complete without a stop at one of the exquisite galleries in the area!
Historisches Museum: The German Historial Museum is a place of enlightenment and understanding of the shared history of Germans and Europeans.
