Frankfurt, Germany

With a population of over 700,000, Frankfurt is located on the Main River. Expats in Frankfurt enjoy taking a stroll through Palm Garden, taking a swim at one of Frankfurt's indoor pools or open-air baths and having a beer at Zur Sonne.

Many expats living in the Frankfurt area live in towns outside the city. One expat commented, "The Taunus is a beautiful area to the north of Frankfurt where a large number of the expat community live. Towns with large expat populations are: Bad Homburg, Oberursel, Koenigstein, Kronberg, Bad Soden, Kelkheim, Hofheim and many others."

Frankfurt International School is very well regarded in the expat community. One expat with children at FIS said, "Fantastic facilities including well equipped science, IT and Design technology labs. The sports programme is also very good with an all weather pitch plus large sports halls. The only thing the school lacks is a swimming pool. Extra curricular activites are excellent with a large 'Athletics' (Sports) programme and also a full range of activities from dance and drama to language courses for both students and parents to join." Frankfurt International School is not to be confused with International School Frankfurt, which has a much different atmosphere. Read one expat's experiences with this school. Metropolitan School Frankfurt is another school to consider.
