WHAT WE LOVE

The German city of Frankfurt is a beacon of modernity. Upon arrival, you’ll see looming buildings scraping the clouds. Despite it’s prevalent urban veneer, it has still retained a good chunk of its historic architecture like the Römer City Hall and the magnificent Gothic marvel, the Frankfurt Cathedral. It was also the hometown of literary luminary Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who is mostly known for writing “Faust”. Whether you’re visiting this city to go shopping, to admire its incredible structures, or check out some museums, Frankfurt won’t disappoint. If you’re looking for a more quaint environment away from the hustle and bustle of metropolises, you can visit the humble university town of Heidelberg situated by the Neckar River and surrounded by a verdant forest. There, you can go for strolls along the streets of its Old Town and soak up its history, walk up to Heidelberg Castle and enjoy views of the town from a nice vantage point, revel in the tranquil atmosphere of the river, and immerse yourself in the culture of the local students to discover hip trends.
