Cheap Flights to Frankfurt

Frankfurt overview

Frankfurt, the city in central Germany, has an illustrious past. Long, long, long before airlines offered cheap flights to Frankfurt, the Romans and Charlemagne held court in the city, kings and emperors of the Holy Roman Empire were crowned there and German democracy "born" there in 1848. 

Like other major German cities - Munich and Berlin for example - Frankfurt was bombed heavily during World War II. Small parts of its original Old Town still stand however and, again, like many other German cities, a methodical restoration programme has ensured that Frankfurt's medieval buildings remain. 

Frankfurt's reputation today is as a banking and business capital. It is Germany's financial centre, with more than 300 banks based there, as well as a stock exchange, German Federal Bank and the European Central Bank. This money-minded city has an artistic heart however. It spends more on the arts each year than any other city in Europe. 

Savvy travellers can save some money by remembering that hotels' weekend rates are competitive. Once the business travellers have gone home, tourists can move in to enjoy this fascinating city at their leisure.
