The city with the largest airport not only in the country but in the whole European continent, Frankfurt, is a wonderful vacation destination. Besides its multitude of attractions and events, the one major factor that makes this city so much loved as a holiday spot is that it is a place for all seasons.
There is no wrong time for you as a vacationer to book your cheap plane tickets for this city. Owing to its fantastic airport, you can easily get the best flights to Frankfurt, as and when you choose at highly reduced airline prices. Though the city offers almost the perfect vacation weather but a majority of tourists choose the summer break time as an excuse to book their cheap tickets to Frankfurt for, only because they city whips up an enviable list of events. Yet another season that attracts tourists by the thousands is the Christmas time, right from November till December.
Once you are in the city and enjoying your food while dining out, do not be flummoxed if somebody asks to sit down next to you and share your table. This is a completely normal and expected eating out etiquette. If you enter an eating joint that has no free tables, do not hesitate to seek permission to sit (which will never be refused) from any table that seems capable of seating you or others, if you are with company. Also to be kept in mind is to wish the people seated with you but not to expect much dinner-time conversation.
If you are being treated to a meal by a native, expect to offer a toast (Prost) and to follow your host’s lead so that you do not make faux-pas.
When it comes to money, remember that you would need to convert your money in Euros and that the country as such has a disdain for plastic money (though a few shops do accept) so convert as much as you can and keep lot of change handy! Besides this travelers check are a great way of having cash and being money safe.
Talking about safety, most of the crime is perpetrated against the locals, and the visitors are usually given a wide berth. But this doesn’t really give you the license to indulge in whatever you may want to. It is advised that you be aware of your surroundings at all times and avoid few of the most notorious places of Frankfurt which includes the Hauptbahnhof which is the city’s focal point of muggings, crime, robbery etc. Yet another area that you should avoid is the Red Light District. This to be specially avoided during night time and also keep in mind to avid the Central Train Station then.
A crucial point to take note of is that all US, UK, Australia, Canada, NZ, Japan, Ireland and Israel citizens only have to show their passport to get to enter Germany, i.e. if you are looking for a stay of up to three months.
