Experiencing the Beautiful Skyline at Night in Frankfurt am Main, Germany
You may easily identify the sophisticated metropolis of Frankfurt am Main (pronounced 'mine') by its glinting glass, steel, and concrete skyscrapers. That said, this German city is a high-profile finance and business hub, and the focal point of a conurbation of 5.5 million inhabitants. It's not a surprise; therefore, that Frankfurt is home to one of the world's largest stock exchanges and even the headquarters of the European Central Bank. Everything about the city is large-scale, whether it's the size of the various trade fairs held throughout the year or its airport that handles over 57 million passengers annually (the airport ranks third in Europe, size-wise). When visiting the quaint medieval Altstadt (old city), you can easily locate a number of cozy apple wine taverns, serving hearty food recipes, village-like neighborhoods, outdoor cafes, boutiques, beautiful parks, street art, gardens and riverside paths, here in Frankfurt.
