Frankfurt - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

The only thing I can recommend is to get away from the area. With that said, to escape the dismal winters, trips to the Canary Islands, or Morocco can really boost the spirits. - Oct 2022

Honestly, it's easy to find your own gems. Be careful who you tell, because you may notice in a week or two's time your "hidden" gem is now overrun. - Feb 2022
