Frankfurt am Main

Its silhouette alone gives it away – Frankfurt is bursting with the flair of an international city

The skyline with the Messeturm tower...

and the skyscrapers of the large banks are the true symbol of the city on the river Main, and the reason behind Frankfurt's nickname "Mainhattan". With the German stock exchange, the European Central Bank and over 300 banks from all over the world, this 1,200-year-old trading and trade fair city is one of Europe's most important financial centres.



But it is not only the financial sector that shapes Frankfurt's image- the city is also an insider's tip among lovers of art and nature. Over 40 museums and exhibitions spaces and more than 60 theatres and independent theatre groups characterise the diverse range of cultural attractions on offer in the city on the Main. The Museumsufer (museums riverbank) brings together cultural highlights of international status against a beautiful backdrop. And it is this that is wonderfully brought to life on the last weekend of August each year at the Museumsuferfest, an outdoor cultural party. Alongside the Museumsuferfest, the capital of "Apfelwein" (cider) also offers a large number of other public festivals, as well as a healthy dose of tranquillity in the cosy pubs of Sachsenhausen. Frankfurt - a city of incredible cultural variety, international sporting events, plenty going on for night owls and outstanding shopping opportunities - is a place where no-one could ever get bored, regardless of whether they are in town for private or professional reasons.
