ABOUT FRANKFURT

* This is a typical expression in Frankfurt.
It means, that the cidre (applewine) belongs in a special glass.
This is called "Gerippte".


Frankfurt, the small metropolis.


"Äppelwoi" (actually Apfelwein - apple wine - as pronounced in the regional dialect), the advertising scene, the stock exchange, international finance and - in terms of passenger figures - one of the world's busiest airport hubs are just some of the features that spring to mind when describing the multi-faceted city that is Frankfurt. Founded on the banks of the river Main – hence the name Frankfurt am Main – it is visibly proud of its US-style skyline, which has earned it the charming nickname "Mainhattan."

Tolerant and cosmopolitan

Frankfurt has more to offer than big-city lights and skyscrapers. Its open-minded and tolerant citizens leave visitors and newcomers from all cultural backgrounds with plenty of space to work, live and generally "do their own thing." And within just a few miles of the city centre, there is some beautiful, in parts mountainous scenery where you can simply relax or even improve your physical fitness level.
