What to do when in Frankfurt

A visit to the Gothic-fronted Römerplatz is one that has to be done, even if it's just for the thrill of seeing a slice of medieval Germany standing up to the bullying mirror-shaded tower blocks all around. The Museum of Modern Art is a bizarre shaped work of art in itself, and will have you as intrigued on the outside as you are artistically challenged within. Then there are the curveballs. A visit to the Struwwelpeter Museum will introduce you to Shockheaded Peter, a nightmarish figure in the German psyche that you might want to wish away. Alternatively, you can stroll onto the Eiserner Steg, Frankfurt's stalwart bridge over the Maine. When you look back at the skyline of skyscrapers it might just click as to why they call this city 'Mainhattan'.
