Top Cities, Top Inspirations: A Frankfurt Guide – Frankfurt is one of the top cities in Europe and one of the major cities of Germany. But have you ever visit Frankfurt? PullCast Blog decided to share with you this brief City Guide that can help you navigate throughout the largest city in the German region of Hesse and Germany’s fifth largest city!
Located on the banks of the famous and iconic Reno River, Frankfurt is known worldwide as the financial center of Germany and as one of the largest financial centers of Continental Europe. The main headquarters of some banking giants, like European Central Bank, the German Federal Bank, Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank and DZ Bank are all located in this urban and dynamic city.
These headquarters are all located inside some of the most iconic skyscrapers of Frankfurt, like for instance the Commerzbank Tower that serves as the headquarter of the Commerzbank. The Main Tower, the MesseTurn, the Traianon and the EuroTower are other examples of elegant and modern skyscrapers that standout on the modern skyline of the city.
In addition to its iconic airport, landmark skyscrapers and historical train station, Frankfurt have also a rich history in terms of historic buildings. We recommend a visit to two of its central buildings: the iconic Frankfurt Cathedral and the ancestral Town Hall.
Next to the Financial Center, we can also find the Zeil Street. Since the 19th century, it has been one of the most famous shopping streets in Germany. This is where you can find the great shops of Frankfurt as well as the Zeil Shopping Center which, faithful to the urban style of the city, features a very modern style.
As one of the most central and cultural cities of Germany, Frankfurt is also an important center of design and creativity. The city hosts annually several trade fairs and events that focus on design, like the iconic Light + Building or the more classical Ambiente. They are mainly organized by Messe Frankfurt, the world’s largest trade fair, congress and event organizer with its own exhibition grounds in Frankfurt.
The city has also several major design and hardware shops that are mainly located at the center of the city. Some of those shops include Purpur, Superbagno Klaus Hoyer, Hoopmann & Ritterbusch Baumarkt, J. N. Köbig GmbH Ndl, Leptien 3, Hans Frick or the Selected Gallery. All of them will make you feel like you are in dreamland-design.
The city also has a vast offer of hotels and hostels. We can highlight the Le Meridien Frankfurt, the Jumeirah Frankfurt and the Steigenberger Hotel Metropolitan, three of the top five star hotels of Frankfurt!
