Look forward to seeing both the old and modern parts of Frankfurt.

Take a walk on the Römer Square and stroll through old Sachsenhausen. Visit the Goethe House where that great poet was born, the Frankfurt Exhibition Grounds, the old opera house and the banking district with its skyscrapers, which include Europe's tallest, and the European Central Bank. Enjoy the view from the old Hauptwache, the Zeil shopping center, the towers of the old town wall, the museum banks and one of Europe's largest train stations.

With about 700,000 residents, Frankfurt is Germany’s fifth-largest city in terms of population. Many corporate headquarters are located here, along with the European Central Bank and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, which is one of the world’s largest.

The city on the Main River is also a great place to live. In addition to the banking district with its skyscrapers, it is full of large and small parks and cozy apple wine bars. For those who love to shop, there are plenty of opportunities to do so—for instance in the Zeil, a chic pedestrian zone where more merchandise is sold than in any other street in the country, in the NordWestZentrum mall, and at the airport. There are also plenty of festivals, open-air markets, and other events to choose from.

The city’s outstanding sights include the Römerberg, the main square in Frankfurt’s Old Town, which is lined by the magnificent historic City Hall, beautiful half-timbered houses, and Old St. Nicholas Church. Also worth a visit is St. Paul’s Church, which has been a symbol of freedom and democracy ever since Germany’s first freely elected National Assembly held its first meeting there in 1848. In good weather, the zoo and the Palmengarten botanical gardens are other great places to walk and marvel.
