The side of Frankfurt you don’t want to miss during IMEX

Greg Anderson

This year we at GETDestinations are attending IMEX for the sixth year in a row! We specialize in conferences, conventions, pharmaceutical meetings and incentives, servicing cities across the United States and Canada.

IMEX in Frankfurt is the largest exhibition for incentive travel, meeting and event services with over 14,000 attendees from 84 different countries. Stop by Booth F540 or email me to arrange a meeting.

During the three full energetic days of networking, most attendees find it challenging to break away from the conference and explore the historic town of Frankfurt. Sure, Frankfurt’s inner city is modernized and remodeled, however Altstadt (the old town) maintains its historic charm. Here are a few of my favorite sights I suggest visiting during this year’s IMEX in Frankfurt:

Old town and Zum Standesämtchen Restaurant

Old town has existed since Frankfurt’s humble beginnings in 794. While most of the city was destroyed in the Second World War, it has been partially rebuilt to preserve its history, spiritual centers and museums. One of my favorite restaurants in the heart of the old town is Zum Standesämtchen; an authentic and rustic atmosphere serving up some of the best traditional German cuisine. Here you’ll find a wide variety of hearty dishes so be sure to bring your appetite.

Iron Bridge and River Main

Iron Bridge is a well-known favorite to locals and visitors alike. Over 100-years-old, this bridge is the perfect place to photograph the beautiful River Main, old city, inner city or even the chestnut trees in bloom during IMEX.

The Westend Synagogue

Even though the Westend Synagogue is not located directly in the old city, it is a personal favorite of mine while visiting Frankfurt. The synagogue survived the Second World War relatively unscathed, with an ornate rich interior dominated with the blues and golds. This is an impressive sight I suggest to all visitors coming to Frankfurt.

For any more suggestions while spending time in Frankfurt, or to set-up time to meet and discuss GETDestinations’ DMC services in the United States or Canada, don’t hesitate to email me.

I look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt.
