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

  • 60%


    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.

    Many parts of Frankfurt in the day are rather lacklustre, however, the night life is some of the best I've seen. Very friendly people.
