Frankfurt Flights Guide
Most visitors to Frankfurt come to the city because of its important international airport, but the city itself is well worth exploring. It's a major financial centre in Germany - home to the country's central bank, the Bundesbank, as well as to the most important stock exchange in Europe. Frankfurt also offers a host of cultural and historical sights, as well as a lively nightlife. So, although this city is the base from which to explore many of Germany's treasures, it's worthwhile spending a few days in the city, to enjoy what Frankfurt has to offer.
The city is the fifth largest in Germany and it's located in the middle of the Rhine-Main region, right at Europe's centre. Its skyline is dotted with skyscrapers that are home to banks and big commercial enterprises, making it look far more American than European. The city is a popular location for trade fairs, exhibitions and conferences, but there's a lot to do if you're on holiday. Frankfurt is, after, all the birthplace of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the most famous writer in the country, and it's become known as a cultural centre of note, with a number of fascinating museums.
Sightseeing attractions are mostly found in the old part of the city, called the Romerberg. Sadly, most of the buildings that were built at that time were destroyed by bombing during the Second World War, but some have been rebuilt, including Goethe's residence.
