Things to do in Frankfurt, Germany while taking a CELTA

Frankfurt is an old city located on the River Main. This is the sole reason the full name of the city is Frankfurt am Main. The city has two distinct faces our TEFL trainees enjoy. The breathtaking face with the futuristic skyline made of impressive skyscrapers and glass powerhouses. The second face, which is the historical mix of traditional gothic buildings and cobblestoned streets. During your time off as a CELTA trainee, there is plenty to fill your days and lots to discover in the city and surrounding area.

One of Frankfurt’s top sights is the Kaiserdom cathedral with its red sandstone exterior and popular organ recitals. Another top choice is Romerberg, the city’s central square which gives an idea of how the city would have looked in the medieval era. Romerberg is situated in the heart of the City’s Old Town called Altstadt with a striking center and the famous Fountain of Justice, Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen. The St Bartholomew’s Cathedral is also not to miss with its 95m tall gothic style architecture.

The Stadel Art Museum is a favorite for TEFL trainees who love art. There is an exciting showcase of both contemporary and classical European art from the 14th century. For something more somber, the Wollheim Memorial is a reminder of the Auschwitz III forced labor camp with footage taken by workers being shown.

To go with your meals, try the traditional apple wine called Apfelwein, prominent amongst the locals.
