Frankfurt City Reviews

    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.

    Very commercial/business-like city and very expensive. Atmosphere not as fun as other big cities like Munich or Berlin. Not much to do in terms of sight seeing, nightlife not significantly better than other German cities. Visited for a day which was enough. Would not have visited if I hadn't had to fly out from there.

    Fantastic time in Frankfurt

    Frankfurt was a beautiful city! It was amazing to rent bikes and ride through the streets--which are much more accommodating for cyclists than anywhere in America. We were there before meeting up with our university tour group so having the chance to explore on our own was awesome :)

    Insider Tip:If you're looking for quick and cheap meals, go to the Hauptbahnhof, where there is a large variety of fresh sandwiches for only a few Euros that are much much better than fast food. Also, remember to drink water and not just beer :)

    The city was pretty fun, but not my favorite in Germany. It was a good place to spend a few days, especially since I was there during the world cup so every night was a bit of a party.

    Insider Tip:If you want a good view of the city, check out the Dom Cathedral. You can go up to the top of the tower for 3 euro or less (there's a discount for students).

    Frankfurt has a lot to see and do, but

    Frankfurt was pretty cool, there are some museums, a great view of the city skyline. However, while I do not regret going, it was one of the cities I would have cut out from my trip if I were to re-live it. Skip Frankfurt and add a day or two in another city. You will find ways to entertain yourself, but you will not really find yourself immersed in German culture or history.

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.
