About Frankfurt

Frankfurt am Main is the fifth-largest city in Germany. Germans sometimes refer to Frankfurt as "Mainhattan", a portmanteau of the local Main River and Manhattan. The banks of the Main River are, on one side, surrounded by a forest of skyscrapers and, on the other side, surrounded by the historical old town. There is a stark contrast between the two, yet also a sense of perfect harmony. Altstadt, the historical old town was more or less completely destroyed in World War II. However, it was rebuilt afterwards and has since been restored to it's former beauty. You can go to the Former Residence of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to explore the author's life. From the banks of the Main River, to the Eiserner Steg (the steel footbridge that crosses the Main), to the Museumsufer (the museum district), you will be able to feel and appreciate a rich cultural atmosphere. Frankfurt is Germany’s—and all of Europe's—most important financial center. The big blue Euro symbol at the entrance of the Eurotower and the bronze bull and bear figures at the door of the stock exchange are frequently seen in media reports on financial developments.

4.6/5
518 Reviews
Square
The Roman Forum is located in the center of Old Frankfurt. It is also the city of old city hall. The square was built in the Middle Ages and destroyed during WWII. After the war, it was almost completely reconstructed. Now it's the only Middle-Age style street left in Frankfurt and stands in stark contrast to the other modern buildings in the city. The Roman Forum is a can't-miss sightseeing destination. Nearly all of the top attractions in Frankfurt are nearby, including City Hall, the museum, the church, etc. For many travelers, the Roman Forum is a great place to come and learn about Frankfurt's culture.
Frankfurt Cathedral
4.6/5
346 Reviews
Church
Frankfurt Cathedral is located in the Roman Quarter, adjacent to the Roman Forum. It was once destroyed by a fire, and it is now in front of people. The towering curved dome in the church is majestic, and the four large pillars form the shape of a "crown" at the top. Although the large glass windows are not magnificently decorated, the good lighting makes the interior of the church more holy and bright.
Main
4.6/5
256 Reviews
River
The Main River is the mother river of Frankfurt, adding a tenderness to this modern metropolis, famous for its financial industry, exhibitions and transportation. On both sides of the river, you can walk and exercise. There are also open-air cafes on the river. There are various types of bridges on the river. The famous one is the Iron Bridge. This neo-Gothic pedestrian bridge, built in 1869, is on the Main River. Important landmarks.
Goethe House
4.5/5
328 Reviews
Famous Residences
The Goethe House was adjacent to the Goethe Museum. In 1749, the famous German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born here and spent his youth here. The former residence was as old as the German dwellings. It was not eye-catching. The building was almost completely destroyed during World War II. After the war, people restored the original appearance of the former residence. Precious furniture, artistic artifacts, valuable ornaments, books, portraits, and manuscripts that were carefully moved elsewhere during the war were all transferred back after the war, and they are now resting in a position that once belonged to them.

Frankfurt
Air travel was once the preserve of an elite few. Images of spacious cabins staffed by elegant stewardesses ricochet around the web, periodically going viral in connection with some modern travel horror story. The most iconic photo though, the one featuring a late-1960s Pan-Am 747 with seemingly endless legroom and creature comforts? It’s a notorious fake. True, air travel was moderately more comfortable during the golden years. However, flying was expensive, available only to a select few, and painfully slow. Over time, mass-market air travel has largely democratized flying. Unfortunately, airlines have responded by cramming in ever more seats while simultaneously reducing benefits and services.

In addition to a lot of shopping centers in the center of Frankfurt, there are also banks all over the street. It can be regarded as a commercial finance street. #Financial District, at the entrance of the stock exchange center, there is a statue of a big bear and a big cow, symbolizing the bear market and the bull market in the stock market. Of course, it is seen that everyone is competing to take photos with the big cow. If you want to make money, remember to grab the horns of it! On the other side is the display area of the fashion show. The biggest pity in Frankfurt is the fog, many high-rise buildings can not see, Frankfurt was originally called Germany's fat cat, all the money is flowing to Frankfurt, the major The bank's headquarters are located in this financial street (Deutsche Bank of Industry / Deutsche Bank / 1922 Bank / Agricultural Bank or other), and the headquarters of the European Central Bank is also here. The number of euros issued by each country is issued by Frankfurt, so you now understand why all the euro notes are the same. But the coins are different, the coins are only the same on the front, the 13 euro countries, the reverse is not the same, are printed with their own unique scenery / objects / people, so don't think about collecting all the way, you Will die hard! It would be better to go to the stock exchange to buy a set of 100 euros. ! ! The financial banking area is actually in the center of the city. After seeing the striking old opera house, the diagonally opposite is the bank financial district. It is quite large and easy to find. The sign of the bank". very good area, worth turning around~#Where to go to New Years Day
