7 WAYS TO LIVE FRANKFURT

Read it in Italian

Bank Furt,  Mainhattan and Big “Äppel” are just a few nicknames for this city, which ranges at the fifth place in Germany in terms of inhabitants and at the 1st place in Europe for average earnings. It is also at the 5th place for the quality of life worldwide. These are just a few aspects of a city whose variety makes it a perfect combination of culture and entertainment suitable for any kind of visitor.

1 – Romantic:
The amazing light of sunset reflected on the skyscrapers will remind you of the “breakfast at Tiffany’s” atmosphere. The

200 metres high Main-Tower is something you can’t miss, just like the walk along the Main River or through the many green gardens and parks of the city. One of them, the Löhrberg park, will impress you with its huge orchards.

Where to sleep:
Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof   – Kaiserplatz in the centre of the old city.

Where to dine

2 – “Sex and the city”:
If you just want to have fun, relax and forget about the rest, you can easily spend fashionable happy hours and visit the luxury shopping centre. Don’t miss visiting the Zeil, the main fashion street in Frankfurt. Then, proceed on Goethestraße and have a look at the coloured, lively and multicultural areas of small boutiques and vintage shops of Bornheim, Bockenheim or Sachsenhausen,.
Late at night, enjoy the music life of Frankfurt listening to some good jazz at the Jezzkeller FrankfurtJazzhuas and l’Ensemble Modern.

Where to sleep:
Hotel Zeil, for all budgets.
Zeil 12, 60313 Francoforte
Where to dine
Grand-Restaurant Buerose. Goethestr. 29

romer francoforte3 – The cultured:
For a cultural trip, we suggest a visit to the city hall (the Römer) with its impressive gothic facade, which has long been the symbol of the town together with the Saint Paul’s Church in the historical centre.  Another place to see for the culture lovers is the home of Goethe, which includes a museum. For those interested in the porcelain production (who’s not?), the porcelain museum in the western part of the town is a must-see. In Frankfurt there’s plenty of Museums to choose from and one of the most remarkable is the Städel Museum, the museum of modern art.  If you plan to spend some time here in August, you’ll enjoy the Museumsuferfest taking place at the end of the month, with galleries open at night, concerts and open air markets.

Where to sleep:
Wanderlust Hostel
Where to dine
Caffè Lumer, famous (and radical chic) literary café. It’s worth a visit!

4 – The business wo(man):
Frankfurt is a well known trade fair city, with special municipal regulations applied to the closing times of public premises on the occasion of the yearly fairs. It is a perfect destination for entrepreneurs wishing to make their brand known. The main exhibitions are the Book Fair and the International Automobile Exhibition held biennially in Frankfurt.

Where to sleep:
Novotel Frankfurt City – in front of the fair and congress centre

Where to have a business breakfast
In the fair area there are many good restaurants, both formal and casual, good for all budgets.

5 – The job seeker:
Due to the huge amount of multinational firms and main European banks, many young people choose this city to have an enriching job experience, either short or long term. A good knowledge of the English language is always required, whereas German and possibly a third European language (or, possibly, Asian) are a plus.

Where to sleep:
Five elements hostel. Moselstr. 40
Low budget, yet cozy and in a good position. The area is good for young people and it will be easy to find a good local or ethnic restaurant.
6 – The student
Frankfurt is the right place for an international study experience as well as to enjoy the “student life”.
The Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität is a 16 faculties university, and the University of Frankfurt is historically known for social researches and philosophy. In the last years, there has been an increasing interest in law studies that has led to the creation of the Law and Finance Institute (ILF) and the Centre of Financial Studies (CFS).

Where to sleep:
A quick solution before deciding to share a flat with someone else could be the Studentenwerk Frankfurt am Main (www.studentenwerkfrankfurt.de)

Where to dine or meet university students.
Kafè Koz, Bockenheimer Warte, frequently attended by students and the areas of Ostbahnof and Sachsenhausen.

7 – Family
The huge parks, several green areas and very interesting attractions like the museum of natural history and the 150 year-old zoo are perfectly suitable for families and kids of all ages.

Where to dine
Pension Alpha – Karlsruher Str. 7 D-60329 Frankfurt/M. http://www.pensionalpha.de/

    What about ‘a laid back visitor’? 😀
    I’ve been to Frankfurt airport a couple of times but never in the city itself – I guess next time I have a stopover I should see the city 🙂

    I consider myself as a ‘cultural visitor’, so I would be right in the historic centre of Frankfurt on my very first day! How cheap is the city for a budget traveller, though?

      Well ht price average is like the Mittel Europe and German one, so for a budget traveller from South Italy (like me) it’s not so cheap. But there’s plenty of hostels of good quality and much choice.

    Particularly like the Sex and the City option and this makes Frankfurt (otherwise just a stop over for me) a worthy overnight stay

      I think in Europe, nothing is more sex&the City than Frankfurt. Maybe only London…. But no… London una too much… London 🙂

    Lots of great ideas–I would love to head to Frankfurt sometime. I think the culture trip would be right up my alley. The museums would be a lot of fun, especially the porcelain one!

    I love Germany, and am married to a German. Frankfurt has never really attracted me except as a way to get into and out of the country. But you make it sound much more than a big financial city. Thanks.

    The sunset reflecting off the skyscrapers… wow, what a lovely thought. Wish I could tap my toes and wiggle my nose right this minute to see that. Where does one eat in this magical city?

    Great inspiration for Frankfurt. It’s just a couple of hours drive from where we live but somehow we never actually got around to visiting… maybe next time when we drive by!

    I have been to Frankfurt back in 2007, with my ex who was working in banking and finance. We spent the entire time arguing. It was raining and cold and I had just arrived after a wedding in Turkey and I must admit I hated every minute of it! I suppose I should go back and give it a second chance!

    My best friend is from Frankfurt but she’s never really sold it to me very well. I’d love to see it for myself. Any culinary highlights when you were there?

    I live in Germany at the moment, but I haven’t taken so much time to explore Frankfurt. I’ve seen some of the main spots around the city, but I would love to get off the beaten path and explore more. I especially like the idea of seeing the sunset reflect off the skyscrapers. That does seem quite romantic 🙂
