4. Frankfurt am Main
The city was bombed during the war, so as a old city it is of no interest, although a small piece was restored along with the cathedral.
On the other hand, there are:
a decent number of skyscrapers,
a significant number of museums,
a good botanical garden with large greenhouses Palmengarten Link
and a mid-level zoo.

Many Art Nouveau villas on the slopes, typical spa town buildings in the center. But in general, the city did not impress at all. Feel free to skip it.
Funicular up the mountain overlooking the Main. Orthodox church built in 1855 by Duke Adolf I to commemorate his young wife who died in childbirth.
Small Zoo Fasanerie.
