Bahrain Airport is undergoing a massive expansion, with two new terminals due to open soon. A host of carriers, including Qatar Airways, are already making Bahrain one of their focal departure hubs.

Frankfurt is the fifth-largest city in Germany, and the biggest international financial centre in Europe. Its clean streets, shining skyscrapers and affluent lifestyle are a magnet for international entrepreneurs, businessmen and women, and financiers.
Beyond the financial heart of the city is a cultured and fascinating location that has hundreds of years of history to discover.
Book a flight to Frankfurt with Qatar Airways and you'll find that Frankfurt has a unique charm and personality that is surprisingly laid back and relaxed. Frankfurt is full of contrasts – a pulsing, high-profile business epicentre that sits in the middle of a gorgeously baroque city with its own heritage.
Frankfurt’s museums are outstanding, housing some of the world’s best collections of fine art and artefacts from all over the globe. Many of the city’s best museums are located on both banks of the Main river in a district called Museumsufer.
Take the subway to Schweizer Platz (southern bank) or Willy-Brandt-Platz (northern bank). The German Architecture Museum (Architektur Museum) is particularly noteworthy, as is the Film Museum, which is particularly interesting if you are a keen fan of early German movie making inspired by the Bauhaus movement.
Römerberg is the historic centre of Frankfurt and full of fabulous architecture and unexpected surprises down narrow streets and alleyways. Some buildings date back to the 14th and 15th century, although ruins dating back to the Roman period are also visible at the Archäologische Garten, which is next to the cathedral.
The splendid Old Opera building (Alte Oper) is a cultural centre for some of the best music recitals in the country. The magnificent fountains outside are a wonderful photo opportunity, with the imposing 19th century Renaissance style opera building as a backdrop.
Opera here is of exceptional quality, and tickets for performances are available all year round.
