Frankfurt is the largest city in the German state of Hesse. It has over 700,000 inhabitants. The town is an important financial centre in Germany as well as internationally. The European Central Bank, the German Bundesbank, the German Stock Market, Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank all have their headquarters here.
The town is famous for its impressive Skyline. Due to the many skyscrapes the city is often affectionately referred to as ‘Mainhatten’, a smaller version of Manhatten located on the river Main. “The smallest metropolis in Europe” is also well known for its airport: Frankfurt International Airport is the largest airport in Germany and the third biggest airport in the world. Thanks to its central location and excellent infrastructure Frankfurt is one of the most important hubs in Europe.
It’s not just the banking sector that makes Frankfurt so significant. Frankfurt is in general a very diverse city. There is no other German city where so many international companies have their headquarters. At the same time, Frankfurt has a number of calm and tranquil spots; the bank of the river Main for instance, the historical old-town in the city centre or the district of Sachsenhausen with its many stylish cafés and traditional Frankfurter ‘Apfelwein’ (Apple Wine) pubs.
The first point of contact for many tourists and newcomers to Frankfurt is often the tourist information centre. Here you’ll get answers to all your questions regarding the city, places of interest, guided tours, museums, hotels, travel planning and much more. In Frankfurt there are two tourist information centres- one at the central railway station and another at Römer- one of the most important sights of the city.
