One of the best things to do in Frankfurt is actually at the stadium – why not walk in the footsteps of your favourite players and go behind the scenes! You get to visit places most fans will never get to see such as the press areas, the VIP boxes/hospitality areas, as well as descending down into the changing rooms themselves, as well as waking down the tunnel and checking out the dugout! For just €10 you can’t afford not to!
The Eintracht Frankfurt museum is also really worth checking out if you are an ardent fan! For just €5 you get to appreciate the clubs lengthy history.
Otherwise the city is full of history and culture – so don’t forget your camera!
The only thing to check out which is rather close to the stadium is a lovely swimming pool only about 500m from the arena. Especially if traveling with your kids, this is a viable option to do before a match since there are water slides and a diving platform. Only suitable in summer and sunny weather. If you have enough time before a game, I highly recommend seeing the old city center which is about 5km away. The medieval architecture and historical buildings next to the modern business district are a must-see once you are in this city.
The Waldstadion, as the Commerzbank Arena was previously known, means “Forest Stadium”. As one might expect, the area directly surrounding the ground is wooded and there isn’t an awful lot else there. Stay in the city to make the most of the bars around the Bahnhofsviertel or go for a stroll along the Main, where there is a flea market
