Frankfurt is gearing up to welcome GCC holidaymakers during the summer season and the upcoming Eid holidays, with a new and exciting historical site in the city centre.
Standing within arm’s reach of the famous Römer square is the ‘new old town’, which was destroyed in an air raid during World War II and has undergone years of reconstruction.
The ‘new old town’ features some 15 historical townhouses that have been rebuilt in their typical style, while 20 new buildings have been erected in the DomRömer Quarter. The new district makes for the perfect meeting place, offering visitors an eclectic variety of shops, restaurants, museums and residential flats.
With its reconstruction finalised, preparations are underway for the district’s official inauguration, which will be held this coming September.
As well as its many touristic attractions, the vibrant German city is home to premium hotels, taste-bud tantalising restaurants, cafes and trendy pop-up beach clubs, as well as fabulous retail opportunites and luxury experiences to satisfy even the most discerning traveller.
Frankfurt is renowed for being a centre for business and finance. That said, the city has been ranked as the second most frequented German destination by GCC tourists after Munich, and welcomed 211,720 overnight stays from GCC nationals last year.
The GCC market also represents Frankfurt’s third largest non-European source market, following China and the UAE, and is one of the top 20 source markets for German tourism.
