Destination Guide - Frankfurt
Not many destinations boast an airport as a tourist attraction, but Frankfurt has one of the busiest in the world, which makes it a bit of a sight in itself. Frankfurt is known as a commerce-driven city – with a large percentage of the community hailing from expatriate origins. This makes for a diverse cultural climate and some very, very tall buildings. Frankfurt has also retained some heritage buildings, notably the Alt Oper and the charming Altstadt (old city).
It’s not unusual for temperatures to hit more than 30°C during summer (June to August) in Frankfurt. Conversely, it regularly drops below 0°C in winter (December to February). The most temperate times to visit are spring (April to early May) and autumn (September to October).
Getting there and around
Frankfurt has an excellent rail network, although it is considered to be more expensive than many other European cities. It encompasses S-Bahn, U-Bahn, tram and bus lines. It’s also relatively easy to cycle and walk around the city.
