    Guided City Walk

    • Date:  All Month
    • Venue: City Centre

    The weather is still quite good for most of the month, so if it is your first time coming to Frankfurt and you want a nice way to see the sights, a guided walking tour is the way to it.

    September is the last month you can choose between two times for the time; 11am or 2pm.

    Tickets are €15.90, but if you’re getting a Frankfurt Card, you’ll be able to get a concessionary rate. 

    Frankfurt Film Museum

    • Date:  All Month
    • Venue: Frankfurt Film Museum

    This time last year we had the incredible Stanley Kubrick exhibit at the museum. Even though there isn’t a touring exhibit this month, we’d be remiss if we did not mention the Frankfurt Film Museum. A must for movie lovers, the museum takes guests through the history of film in an interactive experience. Even if you’re not that clued in with film history, you’ll learn a lot. 

    Tickets are €15.90, but if you’re getting a Frankfurt Card, you’ll be able to get a concessionary rate.

    How Do People Live?

    • Date:  1st September – 15th September
    • Venue: Historisches Museum Frankfurt

    Whether or not you’re coming to do some sightseeing around the city, you’ll have noticed some of the unique architecture we have in Frankfurt, especially when it comes to our residential buildings.

    September brings us the final two weeks of the highly rated How Do We Live? Exhibit at Frankfurt City Museum. The exhibit looks at housing conditions in the city over the centuries and what the future of living might look like.

    The museum itself is a fantastic place to visit. It’s just a short journey on the metro from Frankfurt(M) Galluswarte near the hotel.

    Rheingau Wine Festival

    • Date:  29th August – 7th September
    • Venue: Freßgass

    Coming back for its 44th instalment, the famous Rheingau Wine Festival takes over some of the most historic parts of Freßgass, seen as the culinary heart of the city. It’s a chance to bid adieu to summer and raise a glass or two for the rest of the year.

    Winemakers from around Rheingau and Wiesbaden all come together to offers hundreds of different wines with something to suit every taste. It’s also a great chance to try some authentic local cuisine as well. 

    The event is free to the public.


    • Date:  5th September
    • Venue: Batschkapp

    Touring around Europe after the release of his critically acclaimed second album Wasteland, Baby!, Hozier is making a midweek stop at Batschkapp for what is sure to be one of the musical highlights of the month.

    Expect to hear hits like Take Me To Church, Someone New and Power.

    Tickets start at €50.

    Autumn Dippemess

    • Date:  7th to 16th September
    • Venue: Ratsweg Fairground

    If you’ve ever wanted to get a real slice of life in Frankfurt and happen to be here at the start of the month, you’re going to love Autumn Dippemess. It’s one of the city’s biggest days out with dozens of stalls with local merchants and one of the biggest funfairs we have throughout the year.

    It’s one of the best traditions we have here, and you’ll have a great time no matter what age you are.

    The festival is free for the public.


    • Date:  11th September to 6th October
    • Venue: Commerzbank Arena

    The biggest misconception most guests to the city have is thinking that Oktoberfest always starts in October, and not September. For anyone visiting in September, you’re in for a treat with this year’s Oktoberfest guaranteed to be bigger than ever.

    Every single day is pretty much one big party where you can be guaranteed an unbeatable atmosphere, live music and large beers.

    Prices can vary depending on the day, but most tickets start at €42.40.

    Lindsey Stirling

    • Date:  12th September
    • Venue: Jahrhunderthalle

    For anyone who ever says classical music can’t be cool, they’ll never have heard of Lindsey Stirling. With over 11 million subscribers on YouTube, she’s one of the most popular musicians online, which is something considering she’s a violinist. 

    This will be her first show at Jahrhunderthalle since 2016 when she played to a sold-out audience.

    Tickets start at €56.40.


    • Date:  28th September
    • Venue: Jahrhunderthalle

    Soundtracking summer this year for millions of people with over 49 million monthly listens on Spotify, Khalid is one of the biggest names in pop right now. So it’s a good thing he’s making a stop on his Free Spirit tour here in Frankfurt.

    It’s going to be one of the biggest gigs of the month with him performing hits like Better & Talk.

    You’ve mentioned the Frankfurt Card a lot. What is it?

    The Frankfurt Card is a travel card made especially for tourists coming to the city for one to 2 days. 

    It allows you unlimited public travel around the city, including from Frankfurt International Airport when you first get here.
