Staycation: Treating Yourself In Frankfurt
Frankfurt is undoubtedly one of the best cities in Germany to enjoy a staycation in. Whether you approach it like a busy tourist or a holidaymaker hoping for leisure, rest, and relaxation, there’s no shortage of options for treating yourself to the good things in life, locally.
In addition to offering chances to explore Frankfurt, your German staycation offers you perks, such as no visa or passport requirements. There’s also no need to spend money on international flights, so you can spend a little (or a lot!) more than usual on spoiling yourself. Keep reading our staycation guide for suggestions that can help you plan a few wonderful days in the city.
See the sights
Tourists spend a great deal of money to see the sights that you can see on your doorstep. Consider treating yourself to rediscovering the city’s greatest treasures, old and new. Just remember to check for Covid-19 related closures or other restrictions before heading out.
Begun in the 1300s and rebuilt twice, Frankfurt Cathedral hosted the coronation of 10 Holy Roman emperors. Spend a few hours soaking up its fascinating history and peaceful atmosphere. Head to Römerberg for another experience of the city’s mediaeval past. Explore the picturesque square lined with houses, a church, and old municipal buildings. While there, indulge in apfelwein and a pastry at one of the restaurants or bars located in one of the houses.
If you love art, be sure to check out the latest temporary shows at Schirn Kunsthalle. Why stop there? Revisit works by Hieronymus Bosch, Rembrandt, and other masters at Städel Museum.
Prefer spending time outdoors? Think about treating yourself to a slow stroll through Palmengarten or invite a few friends or family members to join you for a picnic in a neighbourhood park.
You don’t have to spend your entire staycation in the city. Why not spend a day touring a few of the wineries near Frankfurt?
Food for body and soul
No self-respecting staycation guide should neglect the feeding of body and soul. Treat yourself to some me-time in one of Frankfurt’s fabulous spas and to delicious meals in a couple of good restaurants.
Let massages and other treatments at Meridian Spa & Fitness revitalise you or let go of your stresses at Sabai Thai Spa.
When it comes to food, let your taste buds do some exploring as well. Choose restaurants and dishes you wouldn’t ordinarily select.
Sample the city’s best seasonal vegetarian cuisine while enjoying views of the River Main at the Michelin-starred Seven Swans. Relish the homemade tarts or other dishes on the acclaimed French-German menu at Emma Metzler or enjoy traditional specialities such as eisbein or cold green sauce at Atschel.
Where to stay in Frankfurt
Who said you need to stay at home when on staycation? Staying at home means there are still beds to be made and dishes to be washed. The comfortable rooms and convenient amenities of Capri by Fraser Frankfurt are a much better option, especially if you’re serious about treating yourself.
