FRANKFURT: Cheap Hotels in Frankfurt
A truly international powerhouse, Frankfurt is fun, frenetic metropolis that has found a way to seamlessly fuse its medieval German heritage with its modern skyscraper skyline. The festivities come in many flavors here, with an incredible range of accommodations guaranteed to suit all pockets.
There’s a great mix of culture, commerce, and entertainment at work in Frankfurt. Conveniently clustered together are a slew of exciting museums along the River Main, headlined by the artwork of the Stadel Museum. The city center’s Old Town survived WWII, and this is the best place to absorb that classic medieval German ambiance of apple-wine taverns, strudel eateries, and half-timbered homes around Romerberg square. The home of philosopher Goethe is a major cultural attraction, while the city’s incredible line-up of parks, like Gruneberg Park and the Palmengarten, ensure a green oasis is never far from the glass-and-steel city center.
Frankfurt likes to make money and spend it in equal parts. Head downtown to the Sachsenhausen district any night of the week and you’ll find a festive crowd drinking local cider in the historic taverns or partying hard in the lively neighborhood surrounding the Hauptbahnhof. Frankfurt’s performing arts scene is exciting, with world-class opera, symphonies, and German theatre all at hand. Once a desert of dining, this city has emerged in recent years as one of Europe’s culinary stars. Prepare to eat well whether you opt for German comfort food or fine French cuisine.
As befits a financial powerhouse, Frankfurt displays an impressive roster of global retail brands. You can find anything you want here, but strolling the pedestrian Golden Mile known as the Zeil is a real window shopping joy. Schillerstrasse is another fun pedestrian strip lined with creative boutiques and speciality shops stocking fantastic German souvenirs. The modern glass-and-steel architecture of the MyZeil shopping mall is as striking as the six floors of retailers inside. Europe’s longest escalator, running for six stories, is reason enough to visit this icon of consumerism.
Just outside of Frankfurt you will find some of the best spa towns in Germany, such as Wiesbaden and Bad Homburg in the Aschaffenburg region. It takes less than an hour by car to enter this picturesque part of the country. Another great daytrip is the medieval city of Mainz, the home town of Gutenburg and a fine Rhine River destination just 45 minutes by train from Frankfurt. Also accessible by train in less than an hour are Cologne, Heidelberg, and Darmstadt.
