On you, the residents of Frankfurt, can get active. This is your direct line to the city administration. Join in, help shape the city. Frankfurt is your city. To registration

Join the conversation: Your fellow residents present their ideas, you can discuss them. Have your say. Comment on and support ideas on the Ideas Platform. Do you like an idea? Tell your friends about it and use social media, because an idea that is not promoted is very unlikely to find the necessary supporters. Join the discussion when it comes to public participation. Your city needs you to thrive.

More than 700,000 people live in Frankfurt, that's more than 700,000 pairs of eyes. Did you notice something that you think needs to be repaired or cleaned? Report it via the Deficiency Detector. You can currently report the following via the Deficiency Detector:

  • litter
  • road damage
  • defective traffic lights
  • defective street signs
  • defective street lighting
  • defective playground equipment
  • defective parc benches

Please bear in mind that measures requiring major construction work or planning cannot be handled via the Deficiency Detector. The traffic light phases are a highly complex network - everything here is connected to everything else - please understand that we are generally unable to take requests to change traffic light phases into account.

By the way, feel free to take a look at the Ideas Platform: you may be able to present your ideas for shaping the city or your concerns there.

The Ideas Platform: your link to the Frankfurt City Council. Here you can present your ideas for shaping the city to your fellow citizens and ask for support. If you find more than 200 supporters for your idea, it will be examined by the responsible department and then submitted to the magistrate. But remember that you also have to promote your idea. Tell your friends about it, use social media - an idea that is not promoted is very unlikely to find the necessary supporters.

We are pleased if you participate constructively and critically in urban life on the portal page FRANKFURT FRACHT MICH, express your opinion and publish comments.

However, we ask all authors of contributions to observe a few rules and to treat the subjects of discussion seriously and factually. If necessary, we will update the rules. The editors of this platform reserve the right to block contributions or user accounts if the stated rules are severely or repeatedly disregarded.

Be respectful

Always remember to write your posts respectfully if you want to be taken seriously. Stand up for your opinions and interests, but do not offend other participants, addressees at the City of Frankfurt am Main or other people and institutions. Remain objective and argue your case. Before publishing a contribution, always ask yourself whether you would tell what you just wrote to the recipient's face. Insults, threats, swear words, racist, sexist or pornographic remarks as well as other remarks relevant under criminal law are not allowed.

Be aware of the specifics of written communication. Remember that the risk of misunderstanding is particularly high in written communication. Therefore, do not use ambiguous or ironic statements in order to avoid misunderstandings.

Use your anonymity responsibly

Should you choose to stay anonymous on this platform by providing an imaginary name (pseudonym) when registering: Please don't abuse this protection of your privacy, i.e. to impersonate or discredit somebody else. It is therefore not permitted to misuse the identities of third parties. This applies in particular to well-known personalities in the public eye, such as the use of names of well-known politicians, athletes or actors.

Stay on topic

The subject of participation is the content of this website. Refrain from posting off-topic contributions. If your contribution is related to the subject matter, please make sure to reference it in your contribution. Advertising for products or repeated entries with the same content are not permitted.

Do not spread rumours

Always make sure that all information you provide is true before submitting a contribution. It should also be clearly separable what is your personal opinion, what you quote from whom and what are proven facts.

Reuse of content

Comments made by contributors can be re-used under a Creative Commons licence. This licence applies to all content posted by participants when not explicitly stated otherwise. Please cite the username of the contributor as source.

We're looking forward to entering into a digital dialogue with you.
