Frankfurt City Reviews

    Mainhattan is better than you think

    Frankfurt gets an unfair reputation - that it's boring, ugly, business-only. Not at all. It has a beautiful Altstadt, more retro-renovation is ongoing, lively universities, and good parks with cultural events.

    Insider Tip:Go to the southern bank of the Main River on a hot day. You'll find all the locals there.

    Frankfurt has a lot of Museums to visit. Like any modern city, there are many places to eat and visit. I had a good time here. People here are pretty nice. I just happen to be here during a heatwave.

    First time in Frankfurt

    The city (only the city centre) that I got to explore was dirty and not very appealing to me at all. I would have say Frankfurt is not a place I would go back to. On the contrary, I've met travelers that either live in Frankfurt or have been to Frankfurt that say it is a great city if you know where to go and where to look (usually helps if you know someone from there). There are lots of places to eat in the city centre and quite a bit of shopping.

    Not much to visit but quite nice

    The area around the Römerberg plaza (Roemer Square) is quite nice. However, there is not much to visit. One day is enough for Frankfurt.

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.
