Westend is one of Frankfurt’s best neighbourhoods for those of you who are relocating with your family and are looking for a quiet and safe area within the city.
Where most of the bankers live, Westend is one of the city’s most expensive neighbourhoods. Spread between The Alter Oper and the Palmengarten, with the banking district to the south, it has some of Frankfurt’s most beautiful antique Altbau buildings. It’s streets are quiet and tree-lined, although conveniently close to the city’s center.
It’s very similar to neighbouring area Nordend, with both of these housing most of the city’s consulates. The big and beautiful Grueneburgpark (see picture below), to the north of Westend, is great for family life especially during summer: it has huge green lawns, playgrounds for the kids, ping pong tables for the grownups, tables set up for picnics… a great park overall!
The best website to find apartments for rent and sale in Frankfurt is Immobilien Scout 24, downside is it’s only in German…
