1.5 Areas to avoid in Frankfurt
If you are looking for accommodation in Frankfurt, the station area is an area to avoid. It is not reputed to be the best area to stay in Frankfurt.

Sachsenhausen, Nordend and Bockenheim are very interesting areas for a stay in Frankfurt. They are outside the historic center, but are very pleasant for exploring Frankfurt.
