Frankfurt Destination Guide

Fly Direct to Frankfurt

Get your trip to Frankfurt off to a perfect start and enjoy close airport parking with short walks to the terminal. You’ll also love the relaxed atmosphere at Shannon - no congestion and no hassle guaranteed!  

Whether you plan to holiday in the city and the local region or connect onwards to cities across the globe from the Lufthansa Hub there, you’ll find the journey hassle-free. 

Frankfurt, a central German city is just two hours from Shannon, is the financial capital of Europe and home to the European Central Bank but there’s lots more going on in this vibrant European city. 

When you land 

Expect to pay around €5 to get from the airport to the main station or Hauptbahnhof and you’ll be there in about 12 minutes or so with trains departing several times an hour. 

Where to stay 

From luxury, boutique, and budget hotels to hundreds of rentals listed on Airbnb, Frankfurt has accommodation for every budget. For something different and quirky in a unique German style, try 25hours Hotel by Levi's whose 76 rooms are in different shades of blue, inspired by the range of denim washes which have been in fashion over the years.  

Explore 

There are plenty of guided tours with a choice of hop-on, hop-off bus tours, river cruises or Frankfurt’s famous Apple Wine Express streetcar. You’ll find plenty of walking tours and you can while away many hours visiting Frankfurt’s museums and historical monuments including Goethe House and the Städel Museum.  

Although Frankfurt is renowned for its many beautiful parks and green spaces, Frankfurt Zoo is one of the top visitor attractions with a family ticket costing just €25. 

Shopping, Food & Wine 

The Zeil, Frankfurt’s pedestrian shopping street is ranked as one of Germany’s most profitable shopping areas, and is home to the big German department stores like Karstadt, Galeria Kaufhof and Peek & Cloppenburg. 

Ethnic restaurants sit side by side with local options where you’ll find their staple dishes like Frankfurter green sauce (Grüne Soße) which is served with potatoes and boiled eggs, or with Tafelspitz (prime cooked beef), or fish.
