Frankfurt am Main


For over five centuries Frankfurt was a city-state, the Free City of Frankfurt, and was one of the most significant cities in the Holy Roman Empire


Why Frankfurt is the best city to live and study German in Germany

  • Frankfurt may not be Germany's largest city, but it is the best option. Frankfurt is still a tiny, friendly town in many respects, claiming to be the world's "smallest city."
  • If you want to work in finance, Frankfurt is the place since it is home to most of the country's banks and the German Stock Exchange.
  • Frankfurt is very well connected to the rest of Germany, so you'll have many chances to visit other German cities.
  • Frankfurt is one of the few European cities with a unique skyline, and as a consequence, it is often referred to as "Mainhattan" - an allusion to Manhattan in New York City.
