Furnished apartments in Frankfurt from Dist
Bockenheim is characterized by contrasts. On one side, the district borders on the exclusive Westend with its fabulous green spaces and is home to a number of sophisticated, upscale villas. On the other hand, it is characterized by uniform modern living conditions and a proletarian, multicultural ethos.
The district is one of the most cosmopolitan parts of the city and offers a wide range of reasonably priced restaurants, bars and shops catering to local residents. Colorful Leipziger Strasse and the streets off Adalbertstrasse are where most of this happens, with a fantastic selection of Turkish eateries. In short, Bockenheim offers some of the most underrated restaurants in Frankfurt am Main.
The neighborhood also offers recreational opportunities. The green parks that span the Westend are close by and you will find plenty of opportunities for a Bockenheimer "Fitnessstudio" (a German term for a health club or gym).
Bockenheim was formerly the seat of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University (which has since moved to the Westend), and much of the student-oriented infrastructure is still in place. With a long history of immigrating to the area, you'll feel right at home as an expat.
When looking for an apartment in Bockenheim, you should consider variables such as rent, utilities, standard amenities, age and location of the apartment.

Moving and looking for a flat in Frankfurt
When you think of Frankfurt, the first thing that comes to mind is probably hot dogs. However, the place is much, much more than a fast food deli. Home to Europe's fourth busiest airport, one of Germany's biggest football clubs and a plethora of bars, restaurants, galleries and clubs, the city is a real success story.
Welcome to the real Frankfurt - the largest financial center on the European continent and the most international city in Germany. In fact, one in three residents of the city is an expat, so you're in good company. This diversity is reflected in Frankfurt's culture, from the cuisine to the nightlife. No matter where you come from, Frankfurt has something in store for you.
When moving to Frankfurt, it is important that you are already familiar with local prices and the cost of living. Although the city is cheaper than Munich, it's also more expensive than Berlin, so you can easily spend more than you want.
It's also wise to research the part of town you plan to live in - like any city, Frankfurt's neighborhoods can vary significantly. When looking for accommodation, you should consider an area's affordability, transport links, security and local amenities before deciding on an apartment.
Student housing in Frankfurt

Frankfurt is not a particularly cheap city to live in. If you're traveling on a budget, you should definitely weigh all your objects. With a little preparation and research, you will be able to find suitable student accommodation in Frankfurt, Germany.
For an affordable option, check out Studentenwerk Frankfurt am Main: a student organization that mainly caters to international students and offers them student accommodation in Frankfurt.

Public transport in Frankfurt
With its globally recognized status in the financial and business world, around 300,000 commuters travel to Frankfurt am Main every day to work there. However, the geographic area of Frankfurt is actually quite small. This means it's relatively easy to get around, and the city's fast, affordable, and user-friendly public transport system certainly helps with that.
Public transport in Frankfurt is operated by the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV). Buses, trams, S-Bahn, U-Bahn and regional trains all operate as part of the RMV, so one ticket can cover your entire journey - even if you have to transfer between two different modes of transport.
Trains are the best way to get around the city as they are fast, safe and easy to use. The S-Bahn is a commuter rail system that serves both Frankfurt and the surrounding cities. There are nine lines, with trains leaving every half hour.
The U-Bahn is a subway system that runs underground through downtown Frankfurt. In outskirts, it often runs at street level.
Although there are no ticket barriers in the stations, there are spot checks on the trains; So it's definitely advisable to make sure you've bought a ticket if you want to avoid a hefty €60 fine.
The Frankfurt bus and tram system has its own routes that differ from the trains, although the costs are about the same. If you want to get to a quieter, more remote part of town, buses are probably your best bet as they cover a larger area. Bus tickets can be bought at train stations and also on the buses themselves.
