Once again from 5.04. to 8.04.2016, Prolight + Sound will be attracting numerous visitors and exhibitors to Frankfurt. The world’s second-largest exhibition centre (measured by exhibition space) will host the biggest international trade fair for technologies and services in the the entertainment, integrated systems and creative branches, with numerous exciting presentations and live demos. Many consider Prolight+Sound one of the highlights of the year, and it also combines perfectly with the Musikmesse for music technology (7.04. – 10.04.2016). Yet that’s not all: a visit to the Messe is the perfect opportunity to explore the lively city of Frankfurt, with its rich cultural life, specialities, nightlife, and much more.

Paulskirche in Frankfurt am Main

Frankfurt is one of Germany’s major cities, with more than 700,000 inhabitants. Along with the exhibition centre and the financial district, the city has numerous tourist attractions, parks, restaurants and clubs. So a trip downtown during a visit to Prolight+Sound is well worth it, either in the evening or on the weekend afterwards. Must sees include the Römerberg, the opera house Alte Oper Frankfurt, and Paulskirche.

If you’re visiting Frankfurt, there’s something else you shouldn’t miss. In the Apfelwirtschaft Wagner, you can try Frankfurt’s ‘national drink’, Apfelwein, the Frankfurt version of cider, which comes with the Handkäs cheese speciality. After that, it’s time to hit the town. SKYclub is one of the hot tips in the clubbing scene. If you’d like a more relaxing end to your evening, the 22nd Lounge & Bar with jazz and live entertainment makes for an excellent choice.

The Museumsufer

South of the River Main is the largest part of the city, Sachsenhausen. Here you will find the Museumsufer embankment, lined with the 13 museums that have made it famous in Germany and beyond. The German Architecture Museum, the German Film Museum and the Jewish Museum are all big attractions. And the area is chock-a-block with green spaces, cafes, bars and restaurants that invite the visitor to spend more time there.
