Skyline, Frankfurt am Main
Today, Frankfurt is home to the German Stock Exchange, the European Central Bank, the Deutsche Bundesbank and over 300 financial institutions from around the world, making the 1200-year-old trade and commerce city one of Europe´s foremost finance centres.
But not everything here revolves around money.

And as a city of contrasts, Frankfurt continues to prove to one and all that there is ample space and opportunity for art and culture in the trade show and finance city of Frankfurt am Main.
Accommodating more than 2.2 million overnight visitors from over 180 countries every year, Frankfurt offers everything expected of a cosmopolitan city. Historical buildings, a renowned museum landscape, superb exhibition venues and countless sightseeing attractions, combined with numerous cultural highlights, international sporting events, superb nightlife locations and excellent shopping opportunities, ensure that Frankfurt visitors will not suffer even a minute of boredom – regardless of whether they are in town for business or pleasure.
