About Frankfurt

Including tips for the best time to visit Frankfurt

Frankfurt am Main is a lively metropolis in Germany that celebrates a fascinating mix of history and modernity as well as commerce and culture. Situated on the banks of River Main, the city has a striking skyline that you can admire while on a cruise or when visiting exhibitions along Frankfurt’s museum embankment, Museumsufer.

Doused in art and history, this city is home to several museums. On your visit to Frankfurt am Main, you can dive deeper into various aspects of the city’s past by exploring the interactive German Film Museum, the Naturmuseum Senckenberg dedicated to natural history and the Goethe House – birthplace of a renowned German writer.

The architecture of this German city ties contemporary designs together with historical reconstructions from the post-war era. On your Frankfurt trip, you’ll find the Commerzbank Tower standing tall in complete contrast to the half-timbered houses in the old town of Altstadt. The other highlights of the city include the Gothic-style Frankfurt Cathedral and the imposing concert hall of Alte Oper.

The city offers plenty of retail options ranging from international luxury stores to local designer boutiques. You can stroll along the pedestrian promenade of Zeil lined with high-street brands and a shopping centre. For fresh foods, wine and Frankfurt’s famous ‘green sauce’, the market hall of Kleinmarkthalle is worth a visit.

great for a City break as we were working didn't have too much time for sightseeing Food was hit and Miss found a great Italian restaurant without this I would say food options are typical too much fried food for me and hard to get a cup of tea but there was plant of wine and beer available to make up for that

Frankfurt is the only German city to make it into the top-10 of the World's Most Livable Cities ranking. And, indeed, it is a great place merging historic and modern architecture, excellent shopping, infrastructure and food combined with a global & metropolitan feel.

It is a modern city and easy to move around.

It is a modern city and easy to move around. Unfortunately we arrived one day before X'mas day and most of the city was closed for the 3 days we were there. But the gathering of thousands of people at the main square to hear the church bells on X'mas eve was quite an unique experience!

Nice city but stay away from the area directly in front of the train station. Rampant drug use, red light district and gang violence. Been to Frankfurt 10 years ago. I am shocked at how the place has deteriorated in just 10 years.

the area is worth exploring.

February 8, 2024

the area is worth exploring. don't judge a book by its cover. Exploring the area revealed serval nice areas just outside of the train station area. The area around the station can be a bit shocking for some folk. some people in the area have seen better days and some have not and have chosen a life path that is not the best.
