Study map first of city, use public transport travel cards, allow more than one day for shopping, remember most businesses open at 10am -8pm, however some local vendors and diners are open for trade and for great value breakfasts earlier.
Noted some beggars frequenting outside my hotel, but they are not pushy or threatening. Bit noisy near my hotel, but I could sleep through it. Most traders speak english well, so my limited German not a problem. Watch for trams I nearly walked in front of several thinking I had right of way. I tried to stay away from busy shopping strips where I could to experience the huge variety of businesses and cultural diversity on offer. I also loved that you could buy a bottle of beer and consume it in the streets watching the world go by.
In Frankfurt itself within walking distance , you can go to the river and museums, Romerberg..etc Outside from Frankfurt, can join one day tour or take a train to nearby sightseeing like black forest, cologne.
..etc. However, all shop closed on Sunday and have to plan for activities instead of shopping.
First of all is Frankfurt voted under the 3 greenest towns in Europe and the greenest in Germany.Its not only the town with the most business and nearly 600 different banks and financal center.
It is really a green and calm town with many attractions and friendly people. Close to frankfurt is the Taunus with hills and forest where you can look over the whole area. Come and see the City with its old Opera, Palmgardens,River Main with sightseeing tours on a ship and many other beautiful areas. Take your time and you will enjoy it every minute.
I saw many begging people in the Frankfurt Am Main. Even in the platform of the train to the airport, there were a few homeless people and some of them asked me to spare one Euro for them.
I was very shocked about the situation. But they didn't seem bad people who rubs others' money or things. I was just shocked and felt sad about those people.. Many VolksWagen and Audi car were running in Frankfurt. That was impressive for me. Cars were very cool! Thank you.
Been to this city many times, good for shopping and dining, but the peoples here are not friendly and sometimes I do feel communication breakdown as not every local can speak English.
However, this is a city that I don't might to visit again and again.
The city is a combinations of old and new. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Not all speak English. The river walk is wonderful place to excercise, ride a bike, or enjoy the scenery.
There are shops along the way,, and river cruises. Lots of museums. The shops are all closed on the weekend so that is a very easy time for siteseeing and eating! This is a beautiful city and worth seeing and getting to know it. There are lots of fun and interesting excursions. We didn't have time to go this time. But will if we can come back.
The Frankfurt exhibition center is a very important place for business activities in Europe. It is very clean and tidy, but you need to know the city very well to find good food.
The city itself was very beautiful. It was pity that we stayed only 1 night to catch the plane. If I knew before, I would have stayed another day to look around the city.
Been to this city for couples of times on business trip and leisure as well. Good for shopping but nothing much on Sightseeing, don't mind to come back again and again.
This was my first visit to Frankfurt. It was much too short, but I got a little taste. I stayed at the airport and it wasn't too difficult to get into the city.
The city is very walkable especially in the Ziel and around the Main River. I didn't have enough time to see everything and would definitely come again.
Frankfurt am Main is the biggest city in Germany and all the activities and people from any country stay in there, so many culture and the of food in that area
Frankfurt am Main is a very pleasant city. It is beautifully located on the River Main and is also close to the Rhine Valley, which has some great vineyards.
Perfect as a stopover city!
Good place for short stay. Shops restaurants and transport all high standard. Good starting point for day trips on the river and to other cities nearby.
Busy places but yet nice place for business stayed as there are an easy access to other location. Shopping, calture/historical area and near to airport
The main train station is very filthy but the food malls are in good quality and good service. Many landmarks and church are still undergo renovation.
very beautiful city and would love to have more time to visit museums, for sure will be back whenever we have time for holiday LOVE FRANKFURT am Main
I don't think the locals are generally friendly towards coloured people. Expect lousy service from the customer service when you asked questions.
They gave the impression that don't like people with colour!
Frankfurt a M has great history and cultural significants in German history but it is not as easy seen as Aachen, Berlin, Koln etc.
The city/CBD is dirty, cigarette butts and chewing gum everywhere. Markets are great and plentiful, but no Toilets anywhere after a few beers. Locals use Starbucks toilets or McDonald toilets which is not acceptable! This I found a MAJOR problem in the 6 hrs we spend in this area. Nothing in the S bahn railway stn, etc it is a disgrace.
There is nothing much in the city. as it is mainly for business. however you can travel out of the city for some sight seeing
Just as in other large cities in Germany, Frankfurt was completely destroyed by the allied forces' bombing during the WWII.
The city was completely rebuilt and now it is the major financial center in the Europe. There is not much of historical sights to see as in countryside of Germany. However, it is a gate of entry to other beautiful sight seeing such as Rhine and Main river cruising, Heidelberg, Franconian wine country, and Romantic Road.
Cool large shopping area in the center. Nice large buildings. Also has a nice old town with lots of bars and small hotels.
The city is generally nice. However there is nothing for children. Business and adult city.
Frankfurt am main is the largest business city of Germany.You can have a day tour and see many things of the city.
there is this great asian restaurant nearby the main train station open by a malaysian. the owner's name is kim.
you will see lots of diners eating out at her restaurant. FANTASTIC food! even cook better from my country! VERY FRIENDLY! even a lot oh help to help us out going around! a must visit restaurant!
if you like shopping and party i would recommend frankfurt Main. people there love to party and their beers.
its nothing like having a good mug of beers on the streets bar and munching on german sussages.
Frankfurt is a very underrated city on the tourist calendar. It has so much to offer all sorts of visitors.
There are amazing shows of all sorts at the Messer, just out of the city by train and light rail.The River is lovely to visit. The skypscrapers of the banks are amazing in their right in this ancient city.
The hotel is just opposite of metro and bus station. It is very easy to get to major tourist's attractions.
The bus service 24 hours. So it is very convenience. The room is clean and cozy. The housekeeping service is good. They change the bath towel everyday. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Overall it is a very nice stay.
it is good for stay in this area as it is near central train station. Not much interesting place nearby.
Germans are the friendliest people you can find! Friendly and helpful! And its safe for solo travelers!
there many church, n i go than time is germany beer days, night time many street market .so very happy
Many cool skyscrapers and the lovely walking area with very unique and nice trees along the Main river.
