Frankfurt is Germany's financial hub, home to the European Central Bank. This riverside city offers a variety of cultural and historical attractions scattered between its financial institutions and shops.

Your first stop should be Old Town, along the river Main. Once the center of the city, the Old Town district is now the site of the Römer, or city hall, along a row of picturesque timber houses. Stop in Kleinmarkthalle, a bustling indoor market, to grab a sausage for a snack before wandering through some of Old Town's museums: Saalgasse, Dommuseum, and Museum für Moderne Kunst (Museum MMK) will get you started. Two of Frankfurt's most prominent churches, St. Bartholomew Cathedral and St. Nicholas Church, are also in the area.

Food is always delightful in Frankfurt. Several Michelin-star restaurants will entice you, including Restaurant Lafleur, Restaurant Gustav, Restaurant Villa Merton, and Carmelo Greco. If you prefer more affordable dining and lively nightlife, head to the Bahnhofsviertel neighborhood near the city's train station.

The train station in Bahnhofsviertel serves national and international rail lines for Deutsche Bahn, DB Intercity, FlixTrain, vlexx, and Railjet. You can also reach Frankfurt easily on bus carriers like FlixBus and Sindbad. Plus, flying in and out of Frankfurt is a breeze, as the airport is one of the largest in Germany and the main hub for the Lufthansa airline.

Konstanz is a city in southern Germany along the Swiss border. The Rhine River splits the city in half right before it feeds into Lake Constance, and this scenic setting makes Konstanz a popular leisure town in Germany. The historic Old Town quarter, unscathed by bombs in World War II, is remarkably preserved, with heavy Swiss influence. The Niederburg district is particularly alluring for visitors, as it is the oldest part of Konstanz. Some of the buildings here were built over 700 years ago. On Friday nights, enjoy live music, and shops open late for a welcoming and festive atmosphere in this area.

Don't miss a tour of Konstanz Cathedral, a structure whose construction spanned the years between 1100 and 1854. Climb its tower for breathtaking views of Lake Constance. Of course, other great activities are boating or kayaking on Lake Constance. The peaceful and scenic lake offers plenty of Instagrammable moments.

The nearest airports to Konstanz are Zurich Airport, Friedrichshafen Airport, and Stuttgart Airport. Both German and Swiss trains arrive at Konstanz Hauptbahnhof, so connecting to both countries' national rail networks is easy.
