Frankfurt am Main

Contemporary trends in design and fashion are featured alongside displays of beautiful furniture, textiles, metalwork, glass and ceramics from Europe (including Jugendstil) and Asia at Frankfurt's Museum of Applied Arts. It's set amid lush gardens in the 1804-built Villa Metzler; there's a swish on-site bistro with outdoor seating.
