Frankfurt needs no introduction to the majority of people. It’s a well-known German city that I’ve visited recently on a business trip. The three days it lasted were barely enough to get a small taste of what the city has to offer.
I chose to stay in the area of the central railroad station, although not one of the best in the city but very convenient for my business meetings. The area is quite safe although busy and noisy. However, there’s a pedestrian zone right below the entrance of the central station full of coffee shops and restaurants, some truly good ones among them!
The business center downtown is quite impressive! Skyscrapers full of offices and business halls.
The river is another beautiful place of the city, as it flows forcefully through. At nighttime the river is a romantic wonderful place to be as the lights of all buildings on its banks reflect in its running waters.
Last but not least the large square next to the Opera building. Classic buildings all around, well preserved all around the impressive entrance of the Opera Hall, plus a few coffee shops in the square for those who need to take a short rest.
Whoever wishes for more can visit the most expensive shops of the city, located all around the Opera Square in beautiful narrow streets with shops of the most famous brands in the globe. If you happen to be a shopaholic then it’s a place you need to explore by all means!
Finalizing this short article of mine about Frankfurt, I’d like to point out a few more important things. One is the fact that the visitors feel safe despite the fact Frankfurt is a very large city. I wouldn’t consider it a cheap destination but it’s definitely not among the most expensive European ones either. Finally, if you decide to experiment, the German cuisine has a few quite delicious dishes to offer, even if you are not a fan of the local cooking.
