Frankfurt city guide

Frankfurt, the largest financial centre in Europe

Frankfurt, also known as Frankfurt am Main, ranks among the most popular cosmopolitan urban cities of Europe. The city is one of the most important cities in Germany and is now a major financial and business hub. The city is dotted with a main railway station which connect Frankfurt to the rest of Germany and Europe. Frankfurt is home to a large number of finance institutions and other businesses who have their headquarters and offices in the skyscraping zone of the city. Frankfurt’s social scene is very multicultural and the city is home to Germany’s most celebrated museum landscape, offering its guests a colourful variety of cultural highlights throughout the year.

Frankfurt is often referred to as the city of short distances, with many of the city’s visitor attractions in walking distance. The most popular pedestrian zones include the Zeil and Neue Kräme shopping promenades as well as the riverfront esplanades on the north and south sides of the River Main.

The area not to be missed is the famous museum embankment. Set side by side, the museums regularly present spectacular exhibitions of international renown. From the time-honoured Städel Museum and the impressive German Architecture Museum to the German Film Museum – the range of establishments is truly unique!

Twice a year, in spring and autumn, Frankfurt comes together to celebrate the Dippemess, the region’s largest folk fair. Don’t miss it if you are there during the event. In December, visit the Frankfurt Christmas Market, one of Germany’s largest and most popular Christmas markets, and which is well known for its festive atmosphere.

Try typical Frankfurt specialities, such as Handkäs mit Musik (small pickled cheeses served in an onion vinaigrette), loin ribs with the traditional Green Sauce, made from seven different herbs. Frankfurt is also well known for its apple wine pubs. Many traditional pubs still make a cider like beverage according to their own recipes. It is particularly popular when served as a spritzer, that is, mixed with sparkling mineral water. Tasty and cheap, a Frankfurter is a must. Visit Sachsenhausen for the many traditional taverns or kneipen where you can try the local ebbelwoi – a bit like cider but more tart.

In Frankfurt you will find large department stores, retail chains, specialist shops and designer boutiques. Most major international brand names are represented on the Zeil – Frankfurt’s popular and famous pedestrian promenade and Germany’s most profitable shopping street. Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof railway station is one of Europe’s biggest, busiest and most strikingly designed – worth a visit for the shopping alone.

Customer reviews

  • "convenience"    
    Convenient, low carbon travel through EU.  
  • "Fantastic RailEurope - EU2013"    
    We were indeed very happy with the services from RailEurope during our 2 weeks Europe trip (24-Nov-13 to 7-Dec-13). Our family trip planned 10 years ago and now a dream came true with RailEurope. Tickets were convenient to book from Singapore and all tickets arrived on time. London-Paris-Strasbourg-Frankfurt, simply a wonderful and comfortable time on-board from city to city. Certainly will be on RailEurope at our next exploration to other Europe cities. Great job! ***Matthew-Jasmine-Damien***  
  • "frankfurt here we go"    
    Great time  
  • "ICE Train Travel Expereince"    
    The train experience was such a pleasure. It was very comfortable, convenient and hassle-free.  
  • "Fast and great"    
    The train are highly advanced. However, it would be better that the direction of the seats can be adjusted all to the direction of train's heading.  
  • "Lufthansa strike"    
    Only used the train as lufhansa were on strike the weekend I travelled, cost of flight 113€ cost of train 246€ and overall travel time was longer than flying. But very happy with the train, comfortable and clean. Would I use again? Yes if prices were more in line with the cost of flying  
  • "Great"    
    It's a great trip. This is my first time I use train between countries. It was wonderful and stable trip. The only thing that I wish to be this trip during day not night but this is for my time limitation. All you need there like place for your big bags, charger, comfort chairs and cafateria.  
  • "A bit disappointing"    
    Comparing our trip on Thalys from Paris to Amsterdam which also took 3 hours, we were quite disappointed with what we got on this trip which was not good value for money at all. On both trip we took First Class. Thalys, for 3 hours trip, they served 2 nice meals with complimentary drinks - wine included. Staff on board were very nice and friendly and provided excellent service - much more than we expected. They also provided complimentary WIFI on board. ICE did not serve any meals or drinks. Staff only came around offering chocolate which we were told to take only one each. Also no WIFI on board. We will check thoroughly next time what being offered on board before making the choice on which train to take.  
  • "Need more clear signages"    
    Overall, it's still easy to find your right train inside the station (except the coach no.) The arrival time is quite on time and it's just few minutes delay which it will be informed to passengers in advance when you are on the platform and waiting for the train. However, we have difficulties in figuring out how to locate the exact coach no. because it's not really easy to find our coach on the poster shown in the platform as well as it's hardly find a DB assistant to ask around. When we found out that we are not standing in front of the right coach (which we think we did), we have to carry our luggages and then run run run on the platform to get to the right coach  
  • "Baggage space"    
    The trains are well laid out  
  • "Nice Experince"    
    The train is very fast about 310 Km/h nice and convinit  
  • "Great experience "    
    first time using rail europe and i would strongly recommend it to famiky and friends thank you  
  • "Great way to travel"    
    Absolutely tops for comfort, convenience and value for money. We got a great fare by booking in advance. We thoroughly enjoyed the high-speed parts of the journey - it was great to be kept informed by the cabin monitor of the high speeds we were achieving. Our 'picnic' bags were fresh and tasty, and we enjoyed the drinks options. We arrived rested and relaxed.  
  • "timing"    
    It convenience , on time  
  • "Too expensive"    
    There is little room for big pieces of luggage. I'm not sure why it's so expensive for such a short train ride, i paid less than half of what I paid for this for an overnight train but I guess this was at a convenient time of day.
