Looking for a place to live in Frankfurt

wohnung2It’s hard to find accommodation that is both attractive and affordable in Frankfurt, but – with a bit of patience and luck – it’s not impossible. Because of the city’s growth, there isn’t enough avaiable accommodation in Frankfurt. There are currently about 367,000 households in the city chasing only 353,000 or so dwellings. Furthermore, Frankfurt has less living space per person than other western German cities, while rents are the second highest after Munich.
