Frankfurt

Its glass-and-concrete skyline and status as Germany’s financial hub have earned Frankfurt-am-Main the nickname of “Mainhattan,” as it resembles the famous North American island more than other German cities. Here it’s all about business: in addition to banks and the national stock exchange, the city is also home to large trade fairs, Germany’s biggest international airport and its busiest autobahn intersection. In between the hustle and bustle lies a charming old town, beautiful parks and lively neighborhoods where locals can wind down after a hectic workday.
