What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

There are groups on the compound but they like to exclude people. Some people socialize through churches. - Jan 28, 2017
There are any number of clubs one can join. There are a lots of consulate-related activities if one makes an effort. - Aug 14, 2016
Opera (2 opera houses), theatre, movies, symphony, you name it. Young people would probably better enjoy Berlin's nightlife but Frankfurt has a little for everyone here. But not a wild nightlife. You can even find first run movies in English here. Be sure you ask for the salty popcorn or you'll get the sweet kettlecorn. - Feb 1, 2016
Movies, travel, restaurants, swimming pools in the summer - Dec 9, 2015

Depends on what you want to do. I actually don't care for the night life here, so I tend to go to house parties. - Oct 3, 2011
Pubs, theater, dance, anything you can think of. Germans have festivals for everything, a good reason to drink the finest beers in the world! - Jul 7, 2008
