Frankfurt has a small image problem. When you think about the other major German cities, certain images come to mind. Berlin has the art and edgy vibe. Hamburg has the parties. Munich has the beer and the pretty buildings. The stereotypical image of Frankfurt isn’t so exciting. In fact, most people probably associate it with big banks and airline transfers. Plus sausages, too.
Those people are missing out. While there is some truth to these stereotypes, Frankfurt has so much more to offer. The city has existed for well over 1,000 years and it’s pretty much the exact geographic center of Europe. A city with those credentials couldn’t possibly be the stuffy financial center of popular misconceptions. Here’s why Frankfurt is the most underrated city in Germany.
