Frankfurt Pocket Guide

Images Of Frankfurt

First stop in Europe for thousands of intrepid travellers day after day, Frankfurt-am-Main (as it is officially known) is best-known for its position as the financial capital of the superpower that is Germany. True, this is where the European Central Bank is headquartered, and backing it up are another 325 financial institutions. But complimenting them is Europe's most spectacular skyline, a nightlife that refuses to take a break any night of the week, plus all those stereotypical things that we love about Germany like Frankfurter sausages and boisterous beer halls. Take the time to explore it, not just rest in it.

Frankfurt City Reviews

  • 70%



    Frankfurt is a really nice place to know. I'd recommend people to stay one day here at least. The old part of the city is really nice and its even possible to eat there at comfortable prices. A walk around the Main River its also highly recommended.

    a "Turkish" city

    It's a beautiful city for sure, and every German seems to have a good life, I meet some nice German people in theater, they are gentle and kind. But in the new year day, we two girls was once followed by two guys from Turkey or middle east.

    Insider Tip:Be careful of yourself! Keep safe!

    Frankfurt from my point of view

    2 days is more than enough to meet Frankfurt. Didin't know any clubs or bars. Very business atmosphere, though Christmas Market was awesome!

    Frankfurt is kind of an in between city for travellers because of the main train station and huge international airport, it's not a destination with a lot to offer apart from a huge financial district for business travellers as its basically the financial Capitol for Germany.

    Insider Tip:go to Berlin or Munich those cities have much more to offer

    Well worth a weekend

    I've been going to Frankfurt for years and actually lived there for 6 months. Now I go back a few times a year on quick visits. It's not an obvious tourist city but that has it's advantages. It's a very compact city but feels big and bustling because of the Sky Scrapers giving it the nickname Mainhattan. In terms of sightseeing you could do it all in 2 days but it's a nice city to just to explore and chill in. On the weekend the nightlife is very good and varied.

    Insider Tip:The best viewing of the skyline is on the top of Maintower but it costs money and there's often a line. However there a few other free spots to enjoy the skyline: In the city center at Hauptwache you can go up to top of the Zeilgallerie mall and there's a free viewing platform up there. If you want to stick around follow the walkway across the roof to the top of the Kaufhof department store. They have a rooftop cafetiria and balcony you can get a good value meal there or just some drinks and hang out.
