Frankfurt am Main, 24.FEB.201

"Frankfurt is the financial and transport centre of Germany and the largest financial centre in continental Europe. It is the seat of the European Central Bank..."

...Blahblahblah sounds like the most boring city in the world, but it's not. Well it depends what you make out of it. Below is a description of, what I think,a perfect day in Frankfurt would be like. In my mind it would be colourful, individual and creative.

"Frankfurter Burger Company"(Leipzigerstr.15)
...maybe the best Burgers in town

a small indie/electro club which became already a frankfurt place to be. 

"Robert Johnson"(Nordring 131)
probably one of the most famous techno/electro clubs in Germany or even europe. 

"Berliner Bar"(Berlinerstraße 2)

"Clubkeller"(Textorstraße 26)

small oldschool club in Frankfurt Sachsenhausen, which is the more lovely and traditional part of frankfurt, on the other side of the river(free entry most of the time)  

"Travolta"(Brönnerstraße 17) 
If you like HipHop and Pop, that's the right club to spend a night.

The place to be and party in Frankfurt is def. "the train station district" the clubs are affected by their surrounding and inspired by the red light district, which makes it unique.

"Intimbar"(Elbestraße 34)

"Lido"(Moselstraße 32)

"Pik Dame"(Elbestraße 31)
