261. Frankfurt, Germany
Why Frankfurt, Germany?
Frankfurt, Germany is the first German city I ever visited. I actually visited it on a Sunday and all the stores were closed. So I just walked around and enjoyed the architecture. You can do this too, as well as enjoy walks along the Main river and across its bridges.
Plus there are small neighborhoods to explore as well. I think you’ll like this city as much as I do. And it’s the financial capital of Germany and the capital of its region.
Where is Frankfurt?
Frankfurt is located southeast of Cologne, north of Stuttgart and southwest of Leipzig.

Where To Stay
Frankfurt is the center of Germany’s financials, so you can find many hotels to suit your budget. Consider staying away from the central station to save money. I’ve stayed at the Intercontinental Frankfurt and its a fine hotel. I’ve also stayed at the ibis Styles just outside of the main part of the city and it was also money well spent.

Where To Eat
Oh, there’s tons of food choices including immigrant foods as there is a high immigrant population here. So look for your doner kebabs.
Of course you can get traditional German foods as well, plus of course beer, bratwurst and wines. The central station has a good variety of food places with excellent pastries.

What To Do
I suggest walking around the city, head down to the Main river and walk across the bridges and along its banks. You can get a great view of the financial district from here. Plus it’s great people watching.
There are many museums as well, plus the main train station is quite spectacular.
