Sightseeing in Berlin and Frankfurt

When you have the chance to visit Germany, don’t miss to see and to experience some of its interesting and major cities like Frankfurt am Main and Berlin. Frankfurt is the largest city in the state of Hesse and it is also called the Manhattan of Germany being its financial capital. It is also the fifth largest city in Germany.

I just visited this city from November 1-5 of this year and I love it. Actually, it was already my third visit. The friends whom I met here were happy to find a Cheap Frankfurt hotel during our five days stay. Imagine a double room of a 3 star hotel cost around 179.00 Euros per night in Frankfurt but we found and booked one online for only 50.00 Euros. Imagine the savings we had!

Berlin on the other hand, is the largest city of Germany. Being the capital city of Germany, it is also considered as a world city due to its richness in culture, media, politics and science. It is also considered to be one of the most visited cities in the European Union. It is famous for its universities, orchestras, museums, personalities, research institutes and sporting events.
