Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

Modern skyline with old town flair

Frankfurt, that is the financial center, the European city, the transport hub. The city is also called the smallest metropolis in the world. When you think of the city on the river Main, you think of Frankfurt Airport, Paulskirche and Goethe, the stock exchange, the new old town and the skyline. Frankfurt brings opposites together. A cosmopolitan city where international flair meets homey coziness.

Old town flair surrounded by a modern skyline

An old part of Frankfurt has been brought back to life. Completed in 2018, the New Frankfurt Old Town consists of 15 faithfully reconstructed buildings and 20 brand-new dwellings connected by a series of winding laneways. Many buildings feature structural ornaments dating back to the Middle Ages – thankfully saved from the destruction of World War II and now returned to their places of origin.
