Frankfurt’s name stands for a place in a river where it is so shallow you can walk through it – suggesting its location which is on both sides of the Main River in the south eastern part of the Taunus mountain range. It has a population of over 700,000 and a land area of 248.31 square kilometres.
It serves as a major financial centre of Europe and an international hub for business, and transportation. Its airport holds the record for being the largest in all of Germany and among the busiest in the world. Frankfurt is a culturally rich and ethnically diverse city that a large percentage of its inhabitants are composed of immigrants.
Bahnhofsviertel – Among the largest RLD in the world, Bahnhofsviertel sits just at the eastern side of the main railway station. Its streets are teeming with walk-in whore houses that go as high as 5 floors, strip bars, and other adult venues that aim to satisfy diverse fetishes of different clients. The brothels adapt to different standards depending on the floor a client is in. The prices tend to get lower the higher floor you go to. Remember that a closed door is taken and an open one is where to go in and negotiate for a rate. For the rates, the standard blow job followed by an intercourse is from 20 to 50 €. Unrushed services are priced at a higher rate, from 50 € for half an hour to as high as 120 € for sexual services reaching to a period of an hour.
History of the RLD
The beginnings of Bahnhofsviertel go way back in the year 1945 after the World War II. Extreme poverty paved way to the emergence of brothels near the city’s main station. The approval and support from the Frankfurt authorities gave rise to the establishment of the first brothel, Elbestraße. Today, there are about 21 brothels in Frankfurt’s red light district featuring women from across the globe, with the most coming from Eastern Europe and Asia.
How to find the RLD
The small district of Bahnhofsviertel is located around the main railway station between Westend/Messe and the financial district. It is serviced by the central station and can be reached from the Willy-Brandt-Platz underground station.

Frankfurt’s main adult district is packed with Eros centres, peep shows, strip joints, sex shops, and chat-up bars.

You need to be female or a couple in order to be granted entry to some swinger clubs. In cases wherein single men can be granted access, they usually have to pay a hefty price compared to women or couples. Here are a few of the swinger clubs in Frankfurt:
Most aspects of prostitution in Germany are legal. Included in the clause are the operation of brothels, advertisements, and job offers related to the adult industry. There are a few exceptions of course, like the implementation of the flat-rate system in the brothels. Such system outwardly violates the sex worker’s dignity. Other aspects that are forbidden are gangbang parties, non-usage of condoms, contracting sexual services from prostitutes younger than 18 years old.
However, the concern on exploitation among women led the government to introduce a new law that is quite unpopular to the prostitution industry. The brothel operators and prostitutes are subject to closer scrutiny under the new law which states that it is mandatory for the sex workers to register and seek medical service from the public health stations as well as for the brothel owners to adhere to legal standards, hygiene and safety regulations. Any violations of the law are punishable by fines between €1,000 and €50,000 and the termination of permits or licences of the involved establishments.
As for the rights of the LGBT, these aspects of the German constitution have progressed considerably in the last decades. Back then, same-sex sexual activity was illegal. It was then extended during the WWII which resulted in the persecution of thousands of homosexual Germans. In the year 1969, same-sex sexual activity was decriminalised. Though same-sex marriage is not legal, registered partnerships are honoured in Germany which practically grants the couple same rights as married couples have. Same-sex step adoption has also been accepted. And of course, discrimination protection on the basis of sexual identity and the provisions of goods and services are also in effect. The country is also the first one to allow its citizens to choose to neither identify themselves as male or female on their birth document, benefiting the hermaphrodites, and intersex people.
