Weather in Frankfurt

Frankfurt, Germany's economic powerhouse, has a temperate oceanic climate which is generally mild with moderate seasonal changes. The city has 12 to 16 rainy days a month on the average. With a packed calendar of events throughout the year, Frankfurt is a year-round destination and there really isn’t a bad time to visit.

Spring (March to May) sees the temperatures climb quickly from 10°C (50°F) in March to 20°C (68°F) by May.

Summer (June to August) is warm and occasionally wet, and temperatures can reach 30°C (90°F). The city's biggest events take place during summer months. The river banks transform into a huge waterside extravaganza for Mainfest in August, before the Museum Embankment Festival attracts some 3-million culture vultures a few weeks later.

Autumn (September to November) is mild with average high temperatures of 20°C (68°) in September. During this season, Frankfurt hosts a series of trade fairs including the Frankfurt Book Fair which is the world’s largest trade fair for books.

Winter (December to February) is mild and can be rainy. Temperatures hover around 2.5°C (36.5°F) in December. Frankfurt also hosts one of Germany's largest traditional Christmas markets from mid-November and throughout December so it's a lovely time to visit.

Gerbermühle

Housed in a former mill building on the south bank of the Main about 4km (2.5 miles) east of the main railway station, this small boutique hotel is where Goethe is said to have met Marianne von Willemer, who he'd later write poetry about. With only 19 rooms and suites, the hotel has very high standard in terms of comfort and service, offering a refreshing alternative to the major chain hotels that are so prevalent in Frankfurt.

Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof

Destroyed during WWII and entirely rebuilt by hotelier Albert Steigenberger, this fantastic listed building combines historical glory and modern convenience. Despite the elegant furnishings, the discreet service and the majestic atmosphere, Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof retains character and intimacy. The facilities are fantastic, including a wellness club and business centre. For very important guests, who require extra special treatment, the Presidential Suite even has bullet-proof windows.

Villa Kennedy

Now under the wing of the acclaimed Rocco Forte luxury hotel group the Villa Kennedy is firmly in the 5-star-plus category. Situated in the city centre, on the south bank of the Main and close to Sachsenhausen, the hotel consists of three buildings and the Villa Speyer, a building dating from the early 20th century. The Gusto restaurant vies with the very best in Frankfurt, while for those in need of rest and relaxation, there are full leisure and spa facilities including a swimming pool. The hotel also offers a number of meetings and events spaces for the business visitor and is a favourite with visiting celebrities too.

Hotel Palmenhof

The fine architecture of this elegant Westend building is more reminiscent of a historic palace than a modern hotel. However, the rooms of this small but stylish art nouveau residence, furnished throughout with sophisticated antiques, provide all the contemporary comforts of 21st-century business life. Satellite TV, private safes and wireless internet are basic standards in all rooms.

Maritim Hotel Frankfurt

Excellent relaxation options are also available at the Maritim Sports Club.

The Pure

The Pure is one of the trendiest hotels in Frankfurt. Just around the corner from the main station this style haunt is decorated in a palette of white, white and white. The staff are warm enough to add a bit of colour and all rooms have flat screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access, air conditioning and iPod docks. The lobby bar stocks an impressive range of single malt whiskies and there’s also a modest gym for more active types, as well as a sauna and steam room.
