    Well- preserved medieval buildings

    The main draw of Frankfurt are its charming medieval buildings at Romerberg. Easily walkable although people are a bit on the cold side.

    Not as boring as you thing

    I've only stayed for one night in the city but depsite its Euro-financial image it's a very interesting city. A walk by the river gives you a great view and the city combines modenr architecture with the more typical German style.

    Just a base

    Frankfurt is not the most interesting of German cities - there are lots of skyscrapers and not much more!! I didn't find it to be a particularly friendly place either but as I could not get accommodation is towns nearby I decided to use Frankfurt as a base and had day trips elsewhere.

    Insider Tip:Hostels are cheap so it is a good idea to stay in Frankfurt as a base and have day trips elsewhere like Heidleberg

    not too much to do here. If you're looking for a nice bar scene, head over across the river by the church, there's about a dozen plus bars. It was the perfect scene for when Germany won the world cup, it was a blast. There were riots everywhere.

    Frankfurt is boring

    Not that much to see in town, and what there is to see isn't that impressive. But the Modern Kunst museum is a really cool building, whether or not you're interested in the art there. And everything to see is within a 5 - 10 minute bike ride of everything else, so you can see it all in a day. And because I'm from Seattle I love that they have a Hammering Man sculpture here. And it's more international than most European cities.

    Insider Tip:Their bike-share system is easy to take advantage of. Not just use, but take advantage of.

Germany: Itinerary

Munich epitomises everything about Germany – huge jugs of beer can be got in beer halls which can be found all over the city while frankfurter sausages are also freely available. But there is more to the Bavarian capital than sausages and beer and explore it and you will discover a whole lot more.
