Jumeirah Frankfurt takes part at the fifth Skyscraper Festival
Frankfurt, 10 April 2013: Frankfurt am Main will once again be attracting visitors from near and far to Germany’s most elevated festival which promises to be one of the absolute highlights in 2013. The city has the highest and greatest skyscrapers-skylines in Europe and the fifth Skyscraper Festival, last held in 2007, will once again see the doors of numerous Frankfurt high-rises including Jumeirah Frankfurt opened to the general public.
Accompanied by a colourful stage programme, street parties and hot-air balloon rides, the festival – taking place on 25th and 26th May 2013 – offers visitors a glimpse inside office and hotel towers normally closed to the public. The breath taking views of Frankfurt and the surrounding region from these lofty vantage points should promise to be even more astonishing. The excitement continuous down on street level with a massive fun fair held throughout Frankfurt’s banking district. High-wire acrobats, urban climbers and facade skaters, light shows and live music performances including artists such as “Nena”, “Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt” and “Bolero Berlin” are just some of the many fringe programme highlights of this excellent festival.
