Shop ‘Til You Drop
Since the UK left the EU, we have become eligible for tax free shopping and Frankfurt is a fantastic city to hit the streets and shop as much as your heart desires. With a wide variety of well-known shops, local boutiques and luxury fashion houses to enjoy, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Just remember, if you are wanting to claim back your VAT, you must have proof of residency, your passport and request a tax free form at the till. At the airport, you must then get the form validated by customs so keep your receipts handy just in case! To receive your refund, you must then take your validated form to a refund office, which is usually at your departure point, i.e airport. Shopping gets that little bit better when you get some pennies back!
See The City
As with all cities, some of the most exciting attractions are the monuments, cathedrals and architecture. Thankfully, Frankfurt has an abundance of historical sites to help absorb yourself in the culture of this vibrant city. To take in as many museums and tours as possible, why not get your hands on the Frankfurt Card? It offers you 50% off admission in many of Frankfurt’s museums, free and unlimited travel using public transport and much, much more!
If you want a more intimate insight into the city, many of the locals run hour-long tours of the city, where they share their expert knowledge with you. This is a great way to soak up everything Frankfurt has to offer in a short but sweet tour led by the ultimate insider.
