Frankfurt

4.1

Mainhattan

A global center of finance and transportation, Frankfurt is perhaps best known for its futuristic cityscape. It is arguably the country's most un-German city because of its Manhattan-like skyline. Frankfurt is many travelers' first contact with Germany, thanks to the presence of one of the world's busiest airports. Despite its reputation as a banking powerhouse, Frankfurt continues to rank as one of the world's most livable cities. It features an outstanding public transportation system, sprawling parks, and museums. A rich offering of fine-dining establishments ranges from cozy cafes to exclusive, Michelin-starred restaurants. A diverse urban center, Frankfurt is a city of contrasts. Wealthy bankers coexist with students from around the world. Some of Europe's most innovative skyscrapers stand right next to well-maintained historic buildings. Venture away from the famous downtown to explore the city's lesser-known neighborhoods. Frankfurt boasts a network of intact 19th-century streets, squares, and public parks. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Germany using our trip planner.

Where to stay in Frankfurt

Hauptwache, Konstablerwache, and the Main river enclose the heart of the city, an area of activity with a range lodging options. The old section of the Sachsenhausen area is also an epicenter of activity with a range of accommodations; it also offers a vibrant nightlife. For short stay, consider lodging in the Bahnhofsviertel area near the main train station, which provides easy access to the city center and to international train transport.
