Frankfurt is certainly a beautiful city much sought-after by visitors, but you should avoid certain areas such as the station district. This area is not very popular and should be avoided on your next visit to Germany’s financial capital.

Where to stay near Frankfurt

If you want to stay close to Frankfurt, you could opt for the Niederrad and Oberrad districts, which are not far from the city centre. Perfect places to get away from the hustle and bustle, but still within easy reach of the city’s main attractions.
