Summary:

Frankfurt on Main presents itself
Located in the middle of Germany, the city of Frankfurt on Main has 700,000 inhabitants and an area of 248.3 km2. Frankfurt is the smallest metropolis in the world – a financial center, a European city, and a travel hub. When people hear "Frankfurt," they think of the airport, Paul’s Church, Goethe, sausages, the stock exchange, the book trade show, and the skyline. Beyond a doubt, Frankfurt attractively brings together contradictory things. It also pleasantly combines the best of international urbanity with community living. A city with savoir-vivre – one whose streets are filled with many languages. Indeed, it is often just a short walk from international urban flair to the quaintness of old Europe in Frankfurt. And who would've thought that the financial capital is not a cold city of concrete and glass, but full of greenery!

 

Home to the headquarters of the European Central Bank, Frankfurt is also the city of the euro, where currency policy decisions are made for 330 million people. Frankfurt has almost as many jobs as it has inhabitants: 620,000. Each morning, hundreds of thousands of people commute to Frankfurt's central station, bringing the city to more than a million people during the day. The airport is another international hub – the second largest in Europe with some 56 million passengers each year.
