Frankfurt

Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Hesse  /  Frankfurt

Mainhattan

A global center of finance and transportation, Frankfurt is perhaps best known for its futuristic cityscape. It is arguably the country's most un-German city because of its Manhattan-like skyline. Frankfurt is many travelers' first contact with Germany, thanks to the presence of one of the world's busiest airports. Despite its reputation as a banking powerhouse, Frankfurt continues to rank as one of the world's most livable cities. It features an outstanding public transportation system, sprawling parks, and museums. A rich offering of fine-dining establishments ranges from cozy cafes to exclusive, Michelin-starred restaurants. A diverse urban center, Frankfurt is a city of contrasts. Wealthy bankers coexist with students from around the world. Some of Europe's most innovative skyscrapers stand right next to well-maintained historic buildings. Venture away from the famous downtown to explore the city's lesser-known neighborhoods. Frankfurt boasts a network of intact 19th-century streets, squares, and public parks. Frankfurt is in Hesse. Plan a Germany trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
