Expat living in Frankfurt am Main with kids.

The cosmopolitan city of Frankfurt am Main amazes me every day.

I love living in Frankfurt am main with my kids. 

Having lived abroad before in other cities I love how Frankfurt is a cosmopolitan and culturally diverse city. 

You definitely don’t feel like an Outlander.

There are so many things to do in Frankfurt am Main. It has a lot to offer.

You can choose from going to the theater, Messes, to the opera, to museums or partying in clubs in some of the popular neighborhoods.

Besides being one of the most important metropolises of Germany, it is the great financial and economic centers of Europe. Located in the center of Germany. 

It has an international airport that is the fifth largest city in Germany

We have lived right outside of Frankfurt for almost three years and recently we moved just outside of the city center. I have to say that Germany has given us the opportunity to be able to work from anywhere in

the world.

However, we choose to stay here in Frankfurt am Main. I also have to think about our kids and think about what is best for them. And here I can offer them many opportunities.

There are many expats living in Frankfurt from all over the world. 

You can really get along here with only speaking English but I highly recommend to learn some basic German.

I know the feeling to be in a foreign country and not understand a word! So when I have moved abroad to foreign countries I take the opportunity to learn a new language.
