Frankfurt has a lot of great museums, restaurants, and stores; the nightlife is also great! The sights are not very far from each other and are definitely walkable. However, if you’d like, the Frankfurt train, which is about 8 euros a day, it will take you to where you need to go within the city.
Day 1: Ankunft
What’s not in this itinerary, is when you’ll be eating Schnitzel, Bratwurst, and drinking German beer. Becuase its a given and you’ll be doing lots of it.
