Whether you’re an old friend or a first-timer in Frankfurt, Ruby Louise is a great base for exploring the city. Perched between the skyscrapers of the banking district
and the historic old town, you can be striding purposefully with the power suits or sipping coffee on a peaceful square within minutes of leaving your room.
The Main Tower, with its observation deck and panoramic views, is a three-minute walk away, while Römerberg, with its pretty medieval buildings in the city’s Altstadt, is a ten-minute wander.
If you're craving culture, Museumsufer is a must. The 39 museums collected along the banks of the Main include the Städel fine arts museum, the German Film Museum, the Museum of Applied Arts and the German Architecture Museum.
To catch your breath or perch with a picnic, the Palmengarten and nearby Grüneburg park offer a leafy escape from the city.
For shopaholics, the department stores and designer labels of the Zeil are a must. For the best boutiques though, head to glamorous Goethestrasse, which is right on Ruby Louise’s doorstep.
And, when you’re ready to refuel, pop round the corner to pretty Fressgass for a glass of tart Apfelwein with a side of people-watching.
