Often dubbed ‘Mainhattan’ due to its high-rise skyline, Frankfurt am Main has been synonymous with banking ever since the Rothschilds arrived 200 years ago. It’s not all business and finance, however: Frankfurt also spends more on arts than any other German city. Clean streets, important cultural institutions and towering skyscrapers, all surrounded by beautiful countryside, make Frankfurt a great place for a city break.
Despite being smaller than Munich, Berlin or Hamburg, Frankfurt holds its own culturally and historically.
- Frankfurt is an international city: 25% of its inhabitants are non-Germans.
- It has the world’s 7th highest quality of living, according Mercer Quality of Living survey.
