City of Frankfurt
Frankfurt am Main, the dynamic and international financial and trade fair city with the most imposing skyline in Germany. This is the image that many visitors associate with the Main metropolis. But the city in the heart of Germany and Europe can offer many other facets and contrasting variety. Near to the skyscrapers you can find cosy Ebbelwei pubs and at the heart of the bustling city centre you can find historical sights again and again. Frankfurt is not just proud of its most famous son, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The Kaiserdom (Cathedral) and the Paulskirche, the cradle of German democracy, are also to be found here. Interesting destinations for excursions in and around Frankfurt turn your stay into a great experience and you will love to come back.(source: http://www.frankfurt.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=317596)

Rhine River Tour on Sunday
Frankfurt am Main - the financial centre, the European city, the traffic hub, the smallest metropolis in the world, is a city full of surprises and contrast. When you think of the city on the Main, you thing of the airport, the Paulskirche and the Goethe, the Stock Exchange, the Book Fair and the skyline.With a history that stretches from the Celt, Romans and Franks, up to being the financial powerhouse of today as well as being one of he most diverse cities in Europe. No doubt about it: Frankfurt brings opposites together in the most fruitful way and in a most enjoyable manner, the advantages of a global city with tranquility. A city with a savori-vivre, in whose streets multilingualism is an accepted way of life. Yet often only a few steps seperate global city flair and homey cosiness in Frankfurt.
Did you know that the Rhine is one of the longest and most important river in Europe. It runs for over 1,320 km (766 miles) from its source in the Swiss Alps, issuing from the Rheinwaldhorn Glacier 3,353 m above sea level. The Rhine flows through 6 countries - Switzerland, Principality of Liechenstein, Austria, Germany, France and The Netherlans before flowing into the North Sea at Rotterdam.
For those interested, we will be offering an optional 3.5 hour tour of the Ryne river on Sunday afternoon. This will not be an official part of the program, and those who will like to join this tour will need to register at the registration website or at the hospitality desk at the hotel .
