Newcomers Festival Frankfurt

Frankfurt is a thoroughly international city and the Newcomers Festival is proof! Every year for the past 20 years, the Newcomers Festival has been held on a Sunday in September in the Römer, the Frankfurt Town Hall. 

An event for new expats and internationals in Frankfurt

If you’re thinking of attending, you can expect to witness a lively, family-oriented fair packed with helpful services and information about organisations for the expatriate community. Tour the booths to find what you need, whether it’s German language lessons, relocation companies, international schools, health insurance, you name it. 

For the past few years, the festival has been attracting approximately 5.000 visitors from 30 different countries, welcomed by an impressive 60 exhibitors. In addition to the exhibition, visitors can feast their ears on the accompanying entertainment programme. 

As well as providing access to useful services, the Newcomers Festival also strives to help newcomer professionals to overcome the transitional phase and cultural differences, to integrate and get the most out of local life.

Newcomers Guide 

Register for the Newcomers Festival in advance and get a free copy of the Newcomers Guide.

The Newcomers Network also produces the book The Newcomers Guide. Divided into insightful and objective chapters explaining the ins and outs of life in Frankfurt and its surrounding area, and with chapters providing general information on a variety of subjects, the guide is designed to enable English-speaking newcomers to get off to a good start in the region.

Published annually, it has evolved into an essential reference guide that takes readers step-by-step through the process of embracing life in the region. The Newcomers Guide costs 8 euros and will be available for purchase at the event.
