Frankfurt is known as the financial capital of Germany and from the highway (autobahn) it looks very modern. However, there are some ancient things to see while visiting.
This city also played a significant role in history. It suffered greatly from the bombings during World War II but was lovingly restored in the 1980s. The River Main runs through the city and boat tours offer remarkable views from the water.
Spring runs from March to May and is a slightly unstable time to visit. This season can bring snow, heat, wind, or temperatures up to 70 degrees.
Summer, June to August, is very warm with temperatures reaching into the 90s. However, afternoon thunderstorms are frequently seen and can help in bringing the temperatures down. This is also a high season for tourism so keep that in mind.
Fall that goes from September to November is generally pleasant with cooler temperatures. October can see more rain and November can get colder.
Winter sees daytime temperatures average around freezing during the day and below freezing at night. Snowfall is frequent but not does accumulate in large quantities.
The best time to visit Frankfurt is September or April when the weather is warm but not sweltering and the nights are cooler. Also, flights and hotels are generally cheaper during this time.
