Information

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 itself as the world's "smallest city."
  • If you want to work in finance, Frankfurt is the place to be, since it is home to the majority of the country's banks and the German Stock Exchange.
  • Frankfurt is very well connected to the rest of Germany, so you'll have lots of 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.
