The Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the Deutsche Bundesbank, and European Central Bank are all located in the city. There are several other large commercial banks in the area as well.

The central location of Frankfurt within Europe and Germany makes it a major air, rail, and transport hub. The city airport is one of the busiest airports in the world and is the main hub of Lufthansa, which is the country’s flag carrier and is the largest airline of Europe. Since the city is a major transportation hub, you will have a number of opportunities to meet interesting people coming in and out of the city. The city not only has a big population, but it has a lot of people coming in and out all the time.

There are over 30 museums in the city and many of them are considered to be internationally prestigious.

There are so many different museums in Frankfurt, and it is one of the major museum-filled cities in Germany. Hamburg is another one. It’s always interesting to see German museums, and it is a smart idea to download apps for your smartphone that provide further information on displays and exhibits in the museums.
