Frankfurt, Germany
-----------------------------------
Frankfurt, the "financial capital" of Germany and city of fairs is
located at the river Main. The architecture ranges from historical sites
like Roemer, Dome or Paulskirche to the latest high-rise architecture. A
wide range of museums including the German Architecture Museum are
located at the museum riverbank. The city is surrounded by world culture
heritage areas like the "Upper Middle Rhine Valley".
Excellent travel conditions with direct flight connections from major
cities around the world as well as direct train connections within
Europe make it a good base for trips.
