frankfurtFrankfurt am Main, also known as Manhattan and Bankfurt, is a rich city in central Germany with 650.000 inhabitants. For many travelers coming from overseas it will be the first point of call in Europe, because of its airport, the leading freight airport in Europe and largest in terms of passengers on the European continent. Frankfurt is a city with two faces: on the one hand it is the cut-throat financial capital of Germany and on the other it is a civilized place which spends more per year on the arts than any other city in Europe. And although other German towns have done a better job in preserving their beautiful traditional city centers, a stay in Frankfurt will permit you to discover a very lively and international city with many things to do, both during daytime and at night.

Each year, Frankfurt hosts a multitude of overseas and domestic visitors. It is a dynamic European metropolis and a melting pot of cultures, languages and lifestyles. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the most famous German writer, was born in this liberal-minded city almost 250 years ago. More than 150 years ago the city was the centre of the German parliamentary movement of 1848/49 and the meeting place of the “Frankfurt National Assembly” which was of historical importance for the democratic development of Germany. In 1948 it was Frankfurt, where the first steps were taken to found the Federal Republic of Germany.
