Hostels in Frankfurt
Frankfurt am Main is one of the premier tourist cities in central Germany and has many options for affordable lodging, including hostels. Best known for its role as the economic capital of Europe's heartland, the trade fair capital of the world has more skyscrapers than any other European city, with most of them located in the downtown area. Though a much smaller structure, standing at 43 meters, the Goethe Tower in southern Frankfurt was built in the 1930s entirely of wood and features a playground and cafe.. While the skyscrapers are closed to the public, the Wolkenkratzer Festival is a major exception, and there are currently efforts to make this an annual event beginning in 2013. Other festivals regularly draw large crowds to the city. During the Museumsuferfest, the two dozen museums of the city are open to the public for three days, with most of them located quite close to the city's most popular hostel, the Jugendherberge, on the southern shore of the Main. As might be expected, several up-scale centers for shopping are also located in the central city, including the pedestrian street of Zeil where the largest Christmas market of the country takes place. Frankfurt also has a number of architectural and naturalistic sites emphasizing its long history. Regardless of where your whims take you in Frankfurt, you will find excellent public transportation from your hostel on the city's extensive bus and tram lines, S-bahn network, and underground trains.
Plentiful and cheap lodging is available at the many hostels of Frankfurt!
Whether you have come for the largest book trade fair in the world or just to see all Frankfurt has to offer, a hostel can provide a cheap option for staying several days or longer. However, cheap options also exist that can provide other benefits important for the traveller. With bed and breakfast and apartments from private owners on the Wimdu system, you can get prices comparable to hostels, as well as being able to pick and choose among your accommodations. Do you fancy more privacy than a hostel would offer? You can search for an apartment that has a private bath and kitchen for guests. Many visitors also will profit from having a personal contact in the city. Unlike with a stay in one of the city's hostels, a Wimdu guest has plenty of opportunity to become friends with the provider of their lodging.
