If there’s one thing I love about living in Frankfurt, it’s the convenience that this city offers. There’s more to Frankfurt than what initially meets the eye – here’s how Frankfurt has boosted my quality of life:
Commuting in Frankfurt
I didn’t realise how draining the London commute actually was until I didn’t have to do it anymore. Life in Frankfurt is a bit slower than in my home city, London, which of course has its specialities, but not being packed into a train like a sardine is just great! What’s more, it’s unlikely that you’ll travel for more than 30 minutes and the costs are quite reasonable too.
Socialising in Frankfurt
A friend from Frankfurt, who I actually met in London and still lives there now, came to visit me in Frankfurt. Even she was surprised to be greeted by the convenience of small but vibrant Frankfurt. The short travel time within the city meant she could catch up with various people within a just a few hours and be at the airport within 15 minutes of arriving at Frankfurt main station.
Frankfurt offers adventure
If in need of a break from city life, Frankfurt is just a 30-minute train ride from the Taunus mountains. You can spend your weekends hiking in the nature and be back in the city, refreshed and ready for your next week of work. The 3 Castles Trail is one of my favourites.
Affordable city life
Frankfurt is never first place when compared to other German cities, and honestly, I do understand why it’s not the #1 tourist location. Frankfurt may not be as quirky as Berlin or offer the Bayern experience, as does Munich, but for the perfect balance of city life and a high standard of living that doesn’t break the bank, I’d say Frankfurt comes in first place.
