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.

An interesting city, full of museums (which unfortunately we did not manage to get to). The old town is renovated and interesting (though quite small), a pleasant walk on the bridge over the river, a huge shopping center for shopping lovers (I am less). Overall a fun city

For us as South Africans the general day to day expenses are too extravagant and if you are on a tight budget this is surely not the destination for you. BUT it is not a reflection on Frankfurt at all, for the locals and more wealthy visitors it would not interfere with a great visit. Excellent restaurants all around!!!!

Frankfurt is not viewed as a destination by most travelers.

June 23, 2022

Frankfurt is not viewed as a destination by most travelers. It's understandable as the city caters more to business people. It does, however, have a major train station that is choke full of restaurants and amenities in addition to amazing architecture. The train station, Frankfurt Haupbanhof, is one of the very few buildings to survive bombardment from the war. The rest of the city is made up of modern buildings and skyscrapers. A river with parkland surrounding it runs through the heart of the city, and there are a couple museums and a beautiful cathedral (also a war survivor). If you need downtime after visiting a major capital filled with tourists, Frankfurt is a great place to decompress and chill out while still enjoying city life.

Frankfurt am main, aldstat, shopping area in Hauptwache, area over the river, and parks are my favorite place in Frankfurt. The city is very multucultural. S-Bahn, U-U-Bahn, Tramp, Bus, make you mobile easily. Try to avoid area surround Main Train Station after 9PM is you are solo traveller.

The room, staff, and facility was actually nice. If it wasn't for being so hot outside (in and out), my stay would have been much better. Looks like there isn't AC in Germany but overall good experience with a minor set back (not having AC). But good value.


The city is really vibrant.

The city is really vibrant. So much going on and so much to see. Wish I’d studied up more on the place. Really enjoyed the walk along the river to the old town. As for the shops, so much more on offer than my hometown. The transport system works really well. We used the trams and SBahn, just brilliant. I was advised to visit the Kleinmarkthalle by a friend when he heard we were in the city. I must say I’m pleased we did. I love a good market and this was one of them.
