Frankfurt: What area to begin search for longterm housing

Jump to last reply

We just found out that DH will be doing an exchange for his work and Frankfurt is one of the two cities we are deciding between (Sao Paulo being the other FWIW--ruled out Beijing and Tokyo). I am trying to get a feel for how close the area we would like to live in is to his work location (in Germany that is Offenbach/Main). Does anyone have any ideas of where I should start my search?

We have a two year old and a three year old so family friendly area is key with parks, good public transportation access (I won't have a car), shops nearby, etc. Proximity to DH work is good (but he currently commutes 1.5 hours each way to work so proximity is a relative term) but we really want an area with an energy/atmosphere rather than staid blocks of apartment buildings that are ghost towns during the day. The girls travel well and we love to explore new areas so I don't want to feel like I am at home if that makes sense...why bother then? The exchange is for between 2 and 8 months depending upon the location/project.

Thank you for ANY input!!!! (With two little ones my research time is REALLY limited)
