Holiday/Travels

so i’m planning part of a holiday that i;ve booked for later this year.

Just wondering if anyone can offer any advice on what to see or do in Frankfurt?

See the local touristy things, there is a interesting museum in Frankfurt from memory. Take in some local culture and that leave to go to The Kehlsteinhaus instead

Here’s something to do……get out of there and get to amsterdam.

GO TO MUNICH WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN FRANKFURT ITS BORING THERE MUNCHEN IS THE PLACE TO BE OR MUNICH AS WE CALL IT.FRANKFURT WAS NAMED AFTER ITS FIRST MAYOR FRANK STINKENWHOPPER WHO HAD GAS PROBLEMS.

Seriously Kul, this is what you must do….

  1. Buy a shitty 1400cc Opel small staion Wagon or something like that…(sleeping headquarters and wheels all in one, that will take you anywhere on the smell of a greasy rag.

Go to this forum Backbackers site that might help…
http://www.worldbackpackers.net/forum/6_671_0.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; …and get out of Germany as fast as you can…Head South young Man, where the weather is warmer, and the girls wear a lot less clothes…where… Ibiza Spain via France and Barcelona

Only 18 odd hours if you drive like a man possessed, or the way I like to travel, taking 4 or 5 weeks to get there…Here’s your directions mate…the Mediterranean is the place to be!!!

hahaha yeah the hash brownies. and imagine trying to remember this 😆

I went to Amsterdam when I was 14 and it was pretty fun. I went again when I was 20 and it was… :mrgreen:

I lived in Germany for a while recently. Definitely recommend spending very little time in Frankfurt. Berlin is an amazing city and is a ‘must-visit’ in my opinion. If you enjoy nightlife, Berlin is regarded as one of the nightlife capitals of the world. The city never shuts down, hundreds of underground clubs and bars open all morning. Berlin is also cheap in comparison to the rest of Europe, half a litre of beer at a local joint will set you back 2 euro, so less than $4AU.

Aside from that, this History of Berlin is quite remarkable - so definitely check it out. Munich is cool too, but in my honest opinion Berlin is number 1 in Germany.

Another tip - don’t neglect Easten Europe. Bosnia, Kosov and Macedonia were some of my favourite destinations. You will find yourself paying less than $5AUD for a whole meal and a couple of drinks - it does not get any cheaper. Also further north and closer to Germany is Krakow in Poland, which is where the largest extermination camp from WWII is situated - a visit to this site will open your eyes to the evil humanity is capable of.

Anyway, rack up a huge credit card debt and don’t worry about it until you get home.
