Lively and colourful
Not far from Frankfurt's main station and the trade fair grounds, Bold Hotel Frankfurt Messe is located in the middle of Frankfurt-Gallus. The former working-class area, whose brick buildings have been blackened by soot, is now an ermerging district with a thriving cultural scene.
A multicultural place with character. And the perfect springboard for your city adventure in Mainhattan. You can reach the city centre within a few minutes and around the hotel you may discover the city off the beaten track on the streets of the newly developed Europaviertel.
Gallus is a place for the independent cultural scene. Popular cultural institutions around the Bold Hotel are the Gallus Theatre and the Frankfurt Lab. Also in the neighbourhood: Frankfurt's number one shopping address, the Skyline Plaza, with a spa & wellness centre, a rooftop garden with an instagramable view and a huge selection of shops.
Just a few minutes away in the polarising Bahnhofsviertel, night owls dance until dawn and foodies sample international specialities in the city's hippest restaurants. Some of the best addresses: Kokumy, Stanley Diamond and Club Michel.
Asian Fusion Kitchen
Every item on the menu, but to share, please! In the middle of Frankfurt's Bahnhofsviertel, you can enjoy authentic Asian fusion cuisine in a Japanese-influenced, minimalist ambience at Kokumy. And, as it is customary in Asia, dishes are served as sharing plates - family-style.
Our tip: the delicious business lunch served in the form of bowls and bao, only for you ;)
Croissants around the corner
Only a brisk two minutes' walk from Bold Frankfurt Messe, fantastic eclairs, crispy bread and fragrant rolls await you in a French-inspired atmosphere. The selection at Croquant leaves hardly anything to be desired, and the coffee gently but immediately gets you ready to rumble again.
Our tip: if you book breakfast at Bold, you'll get a delicious start to the day here.
Feel the food
Genuine "Moroccan'n'roll crossover cuisine" in Frankfurt's Europaviertel. Rachid, aka rashcook serves delicious simplicity with oriental influences morning, noon and night. The taste explosions are always freshly prepared with a lot of passion and served as a way of life. If you want to enjoy food with all your senses, the rashcook table is perfect for you and very close to the Bold Frankfurt Messe.
Our tip: Monday is Veggie Day and Tuesday is Vegan Day! Absolutely good.
Exclusive fine dining
The trendy restaurant with changing hosts and dishes behind an unremarkable façade in the middle of Frankfurt's station district is no longer an insider tip. We love the colourful crowd and being surprised over and over again. In addition, the informal charm of the interior and the team make the supper club a place where you have the feeling of being a guest at a friend's house.
Sharing is sexy
Upscale home cooking combined with Frankfurt’s nonchalance: at Stanley Diamond, newly interpreted classic dishes are served in a stylish environment by casual waiters in sneakers. The main protagonist is fish and the menu is inviting you to mix and match to your taste.
Fancy cocktails & flea market flair
In one of our favourite bars, orders are placed using old dial telephones. Apart from their very own delicious creations, classic Olde Worlde cocktails are served here, too. In summer, it is worth visiting the 150m² roof terrace featuring incredible views.
Make sure to try one of the "Cocktails on tap" from the barrel!
Not quite central, but our favourite when it comes to Hessian home cooking. In Alt-Sachenhausen you can indulge yourself here with delicious green sauce, Handkäs' mit Musik, Frankfurter Schnitzel and Appelränzchen in true Hessian style. To wash the delicacies all down, there's the locally famous "Stöffche", the apple wine or Ebbelwoi. And always the principle: regional at its best! Cheers.
Our tip: at the end, as a digestif, a little Mispelchen simply belongs to it.
Genuinely Fair fashion
A multi-label concept in the sense of sustainability. At first glance, the concept of the store is based on design; in the background, each label is carefully selected and checked to see if it can be included in the assortment based on very strict criteria. At glore you will only find socially justly produced, environmentally friendly, sustainable and vegan fashion for women and men.
For the art lovers
Opened in 1991, the Museum of Modern Art is one of Frankfurt's newest museums and also one of the most important museums of contemporary art in Europe. It is one of the classics of a Frankfurt trip and is worth seeing. The building in which the museum is located is worth a visit in itself.
