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

The Community Liaison Office (CLO) here puts on lots of gatherings and hikes. They have Easter marketes, Christmas markets, Apple wine festivals, Fall festivals and of course asparagus festivals! Yes, Germans will find a reason to drink and eat! - Mar 2020


Everyone does their own thing. Those with little kids will congregate under your window to visit, while allowing their dozen or so kids to scream. - Mar 2020


There are activities on the Siedlung. Excellent restaurants, english language theatre and movies. Amateur theatre and improv groups in English. Street festivals, etc. etc. etc. - Feb 2020


Better than most any other post. Frankfurt is a large international business center. Socialization is not a problem. - Sep 2019


I was involved in local theatre, which was fun. There's comedy and improv in English. Lots of music, including jazz. Anyone touring Europe stops in Frankfurt. Street festivals are great ways to spend time with folks. Church provides a social outlet for some. - Apr 2019


There are groups on the compound but they like to exclude people. Some people socialize through churches. - Jan 2017


There are any number of clubs one can join. There are a lots of consulate-related activities if one makes an effort. - Aug 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 2016


Movies, travel, restaurants, swimming pools in the summer - Dec 2015


Anything and everything you would find in any big Western Economy city. - Mar 2014


Touring throughout Europe; going to the movies (English); hiking and attending local festivals. - Nov 2013


Lots. - Apr 2012


Unlimited. - Mar 2012


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 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 2008


Plenty of clubs, jazz bars, etc. - Feb 2008


Lots to do, lots of expats to socialize with. - Jan 2008
