Matches in Frankfurt
Frankfurt Arena capacity: 46,000
The Frankfurt Arena has been a mainstay in the history of elite German sport since it was built in 1925.
Located within walking distance of the German Football Association (DFB) headquarters, the stadium has hosted ice hockey, American football, cycling and even a heavyweight bout won by Muhammad Ali against Karl Mildenberger in 1966!
The ground underwent extensive renovations ahead of the 1974 FIFA World Cup, when it staged the opening ceremony. The arena, home of Eintracht Frankfurt for nearly 100 years, was likewise a venue for EURO '88 and the 2006 World Cup.
The 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup concluded at the stadium, which also hosted the 2002 UEFA Women's Cup final, won by local favourites 1. FFC Frankfurt.

Explore the Museumsufer
Frankfurt is home to several major museums, most lining the banks of the Main. There's the German Architecture Museum, the German Film Museum and the Museum of Applied Arts. If they don't immediately grab you then it is worth checking what exhibitions are on.
Roam the Römer
Frankfurt's medieval city hall, the Römer, has served the civic function for over 600 years. Its balcony is a popular stage for returning German sporting teams to salute their public while the Kaisersall (Emperor Hall) is steeped in more ancient history.
Marvel at Frankfurt's skyline
Frankfurt is home to one Germany's most famous skylines, especially at night when the illuminated high-rise buildings soar into the night sky. Flößerbrücke offers great views but the vista from the rooftop observatory of the Skyline Plaza is breathtaking.
