With so many financial changes happening in Fall, why not visit the always busy Frankfurt Stock Exchange? This could easily be called the financial heart of Germany. Get a glimpse of the bull and the bear- if you don't know what this means, ask someone in the area! (Hint- it has to do with market trends)
3. Explore: Altstadt or Old Town
While you can visit this site all year round, this historical old center that was partially destroyed during WWII is best during Christmas time. The infamous Christmas markets are located centrally where you can buy trinkets and enjoy traditional German food, like bratwurst.
4. Enjoy Glühwein
While you’re at the Christmas markets, don’t forget to try Glühwein, or mulled wine. Temperatures can get nippy during the winter season, so a nice mug of hot wine will warm you up as you explore the Old Town.
