Frankfurt am Main, located along the rivers Rhine and Main in Central Germany, is a fascinating blend of a buzzing metropolis and a serene village. Apart from its museums and architecture, the city’s spectacular skyline and modern landmarks of business and finance have earned Frankfurt the moniker ‘Mainhattan’. The best time to visit Frankfurt is in the late spring months of April – May or in early autumn between August – September when temperatures are around 20 – 22 degrees Celsius. The pleasant weather and scenic landscapes make it a joy to explore the city on foot. Peak tourist season for Frankfurt is from June – July and while the weather is usually warm and sunny, some days could be fairly hot with temperatures soaring to 35 degrees Celsius. The winter months from November – February are cold and rainy but usually the temperatures do not fall below 0 degrees Celsius and it rarely snows in Frankfurt. You may want to avoid planning a trip around the dates of major trade fairs such as the Frankfurt Motor Show or Book Fair as finding affordable accommodation can be a challenge at these times.
