A Guide to Frankfurt
Know Before You Go
- Buy the Frankfurt Museumsufer Ticket. For EUR 18, you'll get access to 34 museums across the city and special exhibitions.
- German's rarely eat with their hands. You can expect to see locals eating pizza, french fries and pretzels with a knife and fork.
- You don't need to tip. Waiters, bellboys and porters won't expect it, but if you think the service is exceptional, you're welcome to leave a small tip.
- Go to Sachsenhausen for the best cider in Frankfurt. The pints are cheap, and there are plenty of eateries selling delicious plates of food.
- Keep small change in your bag. The public toilets in Frankfurt are not free, and you'll need to cough up EUR 0.50 if you need to use one while exploring the city.
- Get online for free. Head to the nearest Starbucks, McDonald's or Burger King to use their WiFi without buying a data package.
Getting Around Frankfurt
With an extensive public transport system, it's easy to get around Frankfurt without breaking the bank.
Tickets for buses, streetcars and the subway cost around EUR 1.80 per ticket. But if you're planning on using the system a lot, buy a U-Bahn ticket for EUR 7. You'll get unlimited rides across all forms of public transport in the city.
If you're out late, take one of the Night Liner buses back to your hotel. It runs from 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. every day.
Hire a bike and see the city at your own pace. Rentals start at EUR 10 per day and are available from most street corners 24/7.
Taxis are the most expensive way to get around Frankfurt. You can hail a driver from the street or go to one of the city's designated taxi stands. Fares start from EUR 2.50 and go up by EUR 1.70 every kilometre.
Only rent a car if you're planning a day trip outside of the city. Frankfurt has few parking spaces, and if you do manage to find a spot, the rates aren't cheap.
When is The Best Time to Visit Frankfurt?
The best time to visit Frankfurt depends on what you want to do.
June to August is summer in Frankfurt and the city's peak tourist season. You'll find loads of fairs, festivals and attractions to keep you busy. But you'll need to book your accommodation and flights a few months in advance to beat the rush and lock in lower prices.
If you want to escape the crowds, plan your trip around the two shoulder seasons. From April to May and August to September, the city empties out, and you'll find fewer people at the top attractions.
The cheapest time of year is during the winter months. Between December and March, temperatures drop to sub-zero temperatures, keeping many travellers away. But if you can handle the cold, you'll be rewarded with cheap hotel rates and the chance to experience Germany's famous Christmas markets.

Frankfurt Airport is the busiest airport in the country. It operates 1,365 flights every day and passengers can fly to 275 destinations around the world. The airport is a hub for Lufthansa and a focus city for SunExpress and TUIfly.
