Frankfurt - the metropolis in miniature
And that is precisely what makes the city on the Main so worth living in! Because here you have your finger on the pulse of time, but not in the stress of the megacities.
Around 700,000 Frankfurters live between the country's largest city forest and the Taunus low mountain range. In twenty minutes you can cross the city centre. But: The metropolis is dynamic and fast. Nowhere is the pace of life faster than on the Zeil, one of Germany's highest-turnover shopping streets. But the city on the Main is also cosy. For example, in the cider bars, where people meet in the evening after work in some almost village-like districts to go shopping.
The metropolis is colourful. 180 nations live here peacefully together, almost one in three has no German passport. The metropolis is hip, is trendy, is sexy. Here money is earned and lost again. Techno is lived here and tango is danced. The trends of tomorrow are born here. Frankfurt's population is younger than that of other cities. And she lives more individually.
Frankfurt am Main, the dynamic and international financial and trade fair city with the most impressive skyline in Germany. Many visitors associate this image with the Main metropolis. But the city in the heart of Germany and Europe has even more facets and many contrasts to offer.
Not far from the skyscrapers you will find cosy Ebbelwoi pubs and, in the middle of the busy city centre, historical sights that are always worth seeing. Frankfurt is not only proud of the city's most famous son, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The Kaiserdom and Paulskirche, the cradle of German democracy, are also located here. Interesting excursion destinations in and around Frankfurt will make your stay a great experience and you will be happy to come back.
