Hot-dog, summer in the city

save 10% on your stay

Frankfurt am Main is best known as Germany’s business capital (it’s been hosting international trade fairs since the Middle Ages) and this role means its appeal is often overlooked by regular visitors. Summer sees Frankfurt’s citizens flock to its parks, riverside spots and rooftop spaces. Long Island Summer Lounge is one such sun deck, atop a car park fitted out with a pool, potted palms and deckchairs. With a glass of riesling in hand – or a hot-dog, in this, the home of the frankfurter – summertime loungers can survey the city skyline, which often feels more North American than European with its high-rise architecture. Despite the city’s more recent nickname, Mainhattan, it’s not about to forget its heritage, with many projects complete or under way to rebuild historic houses in the old centre lost in WWII. One annual tradition is the Apfelwein Festival, from 12-21 August, where tastings of local cider take place among live music performances and theatre in the local dialect. Later in August, the Museumsuferfest brings in crowds for discounted entry to museums, along with open-air art exhibitions, handicraft markets and world food stalls. Finish off with a drink at Maincafé’s riverside tables, as the sun sets behind ‘Mainhattan’.
