frankfurt info & christmas market

Am going to Frankfurt with my friends for 1 night to experience the christmas market, we are staying at the Savoy hotel near the train station & have read several bad things about this area can anyone give me any more info regarding going out at night (we are all women) & recommend any near by restaurants. Also any other info would be really helpful.

The Altstadt (old city) with the Römerberg square where the Christmas Market is in walking distance.

Here a guide to restaurants in Frankfurt (in German)


It depends what you're looking for:

Apfelwein = bars serving apple wine (typical Frankfurt drink)

Bürgerlich = traditional German cuisine and ambience

Frankfurterisch = similar but distinctive Frankfurt cuisine

Exklusiv = ( I don't have to translate this - or ?)

the rest are mostly restaurants grouped by cuisine (vegetarian, Italian, ...)

-> Alle Einträge in der Landkarte anzeigen

Show a map with all entries (slow)

The ratings - where available - are according to the German school notes. 1 = very good 6 = bad

Essen = food

Trinken = drinks

Ambiente = amience

Preis/Leistung = price/value

Service = service

Gesamtwertung = summary

The Bahnhofsviertel (railway station quarter) is not the most pleasant area to stay (but this is true for many cities). But central. A bit seedy in Frankfurt, but nothing to be really scared on.
