Germany's fifth largest city and one of Europe's most important financial and trading centres, Frankfurt is a modern city with ancient roots. From the timber-framed houses on the Römerberg to the gleaming skyscrapers of the banking district, it bears the marks of the passing of the centuries.
After World War II, Frankfurt was left in ruins and the city turned to innovation rather than restoration and constructed a city skyline that would give New York a run for its money.
This stunning landscape of skyscrapers has dubbed Frankfurt as a German “Mainhattan” (Frankfurt is located on the Main River). Owing to its cosmopolitan reputation, one in three people living in Frankfurt do not hold a German passport. Thus, visitors can easily get along in English.
Frankfurt has already secured itself as a major economic and business hub for Germany and Europe, but it is working to distinguish itself as an attraction for literature and art connoisseurs.
The city has an energetic nightlife, an array of museums and festivals and one of the most important zoos in Europe, the Frankfurt Zoological Garden – almost all of which lie inside the old city walls.
