Frankfurt tourism is multi-faceted, despite the city being known more as a financial hub. While images of its skyline dotted with high-rises is testament to its status as an economic powerhouse, visiting Frankfurt reveals just how historic and multi-faceted this international city really is.
Frankfurt is set on the banks of the River Main, in the Hesse federated state of South-west Germany. The river bisects the city, which also houses the Frankfurt City Forest — the country’s largest.
