How is life in Frankfurt

What is life like in Frankfurt?

What is life like in Frankfurt?
Hello,
I applied for law in Frankfurt because I especially like the Westend campus there. However, I have absolutely no idea about the rest of the city. I only hear often that it is supposed to be going on there and that crime and prostitution are quite widespread, is that right? And can you vlt me. Suggest a couple of neighborhoods that also fit well with the student budget
Re: What is life like in Frankfurt?
I live Not in Frankfurt, but I am there quite often and have to say that I have hardly noticed anything of the negative aspects that are often associated with Frankfurt. But it certainly depends on the corners in which you hang around . As in any big city, there are beautiful neighborhoods and some that are less beautiful.

Since you are talking about the student financial situation: the lower the real estate prices, the more problematic the living environment. Remember, students aren't the only people with little money to spend! There are also people who are not exactly among the winners in society, and they usually live where it is cheap - properties with a high number of residential units in districts with little greenery. Of course, they're not all bad people per se; some are friendly and helpful people who are simply unlucky in life. You have to weigh up accordingly how much you are willing to spend on quality of life, because the closer environment has a not inconsiderable influence on your everyday life.

Hahaha, who is telling that? People who have been here before?

I think I've seen a prostitute once in the 10 years I've lived here. She was standing next to me at the burger shop in the Bahnhofsviertel and also ordered a burger. But it didn't hurt me (and not everyone else either), only the guy behind the counter almost lost his eyes
But: you can now go out in the Bahnhofsviertel, there are many hip bars and restaurants. But if you prefer to avoid such a clientele, there are also plenty of other parts of the city.

About living: there are actually no really bad neighborhoods. The districts, which are really nice to live in, also cost accordingly. Only with student loans is it sure to run out in Frankfurt - real estate prices here are among the most expensive in Germany.

Frankfurt is just ugly, dirty and shabby. And then there are the crazy real estate prices - I'd never want to live there.

Doesn't that apply to every big city? Admittedly, there are few properties in Frankfurt that I would say straight away that I would be there with pleasure would live, but God knows they are not all hovels! The beautiful houses cost a few marks fifty .

This is Frankfurt, not Paris!

weren't you the person who would rather live in a dixi toilet in Hamburg than in a residential area in Chemnitz. There was something.

Can you sign it 1: 1. In addition, the skyline is completely overrated. The Frankfurt skyscrapers are tiny and ugly, even compared to the average US city of 200,000.

Certainly, that may sound a little exaggerated. Frankfurt also has beautiful corners and there are decent people there. But one cannot deny that Frankfurt is particularly anti-social throughout Germany. If you are looking for a beautiful and clean city, you should go somewhere - just not Frankfurt.

But none of this says anything about the Goethe University, which is very well known.

I live in Wiesbaden and have also lived in Darmstadt for a longer period of time. If you want to study in Frankfurt and still live well, you should move to Wiesbaden, Darmstadt or Mainz. These are the model cities in Rhineland-Hesse (especially Wiesbaden) - but certainly not Frankfurt.

The train connections are very good from all three cities to Frankfurt.

The nickname of Frankfurt is not called "Mainhattan" for nothing, you just want to be the most important city with the largest airport and most high-rise buildings in Germany. Frankfurt is also said to be the commuter capital, i.e. most of the people who work there come from outside the city. The high crime rate is primarily due to the airport and the main train station, many people passing through are also recorded there.

Totally wrong. I have often written that I would rather live in a chic, cheap apartment in the "east" than in some immensely overpriced shack in an expensive West German city.
