Frankfurt, the capital city of the state of Hessen, is located at the heart of Germany and Europe. It is the leading financial center of Europe, the busiest transportation hub in Germany, and features some of the largest and most important trade-fairs in the world. The Frankfurt skyline is perhaps the most eye-catching sight when you first visit the city. The imposing sky-scrapers and proximity to the Main River have earned this city the nickname Mainhattan. During your stay in Frankfurt, you should definitely check out one of the many trade fairs held at the Messe Frankfurt. The two most well-known of these fairs are the Frankfurt Book Fair and Frankfurt Motor Show, the largest of their kind.
Frankfurt is by far the most multicultural city in Germany, with around 25 percent of the population either not holding a German passport or being a naturalized German citizen. This leads to a colorful mixture of cuisine, traditions, religion, and culture. Frankfurt features a great array of interesting museums, the most famous of which lie along the Museumsufer. Here you will find 11 museums including the world-renowned Jewish Museum and Städel Museum for Fine Arts. Traditional Frankfurt cuisine consists of hearty ingredients like eggs, potatoes, and lots of herbs. It is believed that the famous writer Goethe listed Grüne Soße, or green sauce, a typical Frankfurter meal, as his favorite dish. When discussing Frankfurt cuisine, one can of course not forget the Frankfurter sausage. This famous meat is usually served with a side of Sauerkraut, and can be found all over the city.
Frankfurt architecture is not limited to raging sky-scrapers and office buildings; the city hall consists of nine buildings simply called Römer, and features a facade reminiscent of medieval times. The St. Paul’s Church is perhaps the most important political and historical monument of the city. The church, established in 1789, became the seat of the Frankfurt Parliament, the first publicly and freely-elected German legislative body.
