Families and Children

The big city for little visitors

Frankfurt is a great place to spend time with children. We have compiled a number of family-friendly activities for you that are sure to keep your little ones entertained. A view of the Main metropolis from high above is just one of the many highlights on offer, with two options available to you: You may either take the lift to the rooftop observation platform of the MAIN TOWER, or climb the stairs to the spire of the Frankfurt Cathedral in the old town. The views from each of these locations are truly breathtaking. If your children are interested in a bit of youth culture, why not attend a children’s theatre performance or visit one of the city’s many child-friendly museums? Yet another option is to pay a visit to one of the city’s many parks, gardens or forest playgrounds, where your little ones may roam to their hearts’ content.

Being human. The beginnings of our culture


Archäologisches Museum Frankfurt im Karmeliterkloster (Archaeological Museum in the Carmelite Monastery)

When we look at the long history of human development, it becomes clear how many different developments have contributed to our humanity over millions of years. They made us into a culturally determined and exceedingly diverse species that today populates the entire earth. In order to understand the path of humanity up to the present day, one has to dive deep into past times.
