Frankfurt is the largest city in the state of Hesse and fifth largest in Germany. Frankfurt is aesthetically and ethnologically diverse, with a majority of young people who are migrants from various countries. Frankfurt is an international hub for business, culture, teaching, tourism and Technology. Frankfurt Airport is among the world's busiest airports. Headquarters of European Central Bank, German Federal Bank, Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank and DZ Bank are in Frankfurt. Automobiles, media and creative industries supplement the financial base. Messe Frankfurt constitutes the world largest trade fairs. Educational institutions like the Goethe University, the UAS and graduate schools like the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management are world renowned.
Almost one in three of the people living in Frankfurt do not hold a German passport. No matter where visitors come from, they will always meet people in Frankfurt who speak their language and a restaurant that serves their favourite food. The open and hospitable atmosphere in Frankfurt stems from its centuries-old role as a trading centre. This liberal and democratic tradition of the city may be one reason for the fact that people from very diverse cultures have lived here in peace with one another for a long time. They have all contributed to making this city shine slightly differently from every angle, like a jewel shines slightly differently when you look at it from different sides.
This starts with the city’s architecture. Those who go and have a drink in a cosy cider pub on a nice summer evening will experience the atmosphere that even Frankfurt’s most famous son, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, would still easily recognize. The view of Frankfurt’s bold high-rise architecture is just as attractive and yet very different. Directly opposite the high-rise buildings, on the other side of the Main, a unique collection of 13 museums has been developed and these are devoted to different works of art, from classical paintings to modern media. Various tourist places like concert hall Alte Oper, the Schirn art venue at the old town, Frankfurt's skyline, central Wallanlagen, clubs Dorian Gray, Palmengarten and many more constitute the Frankfurt’s attractions
