Frankfurt Airport
A City of Contrasts
Frankfurt's skyline is perhaps the city's most well-known symbol. Skyscrapers of all shapes and sizes characterize the image of the Main metropolis, an image of a bustling finance capital. But "Mainhattan" stands not only for modernity, it is also a place of tradition.

Frankfurt is a city of contrasts, and on closer inspection, when walking through the elaborately restored Romerberg or along the banks of the Main with its unique collection of museums, when touring the traditional cider pubs in Sachsenhausen or taking a leisurely stroll along the "Fressgass" and the elegant Goethestrasse, one cannot help but to love it.

The attractiveness of its cityscape and Frankfurt's unique cultural program distinguish it as one of Europe's great metropolises.

Frankfurt is a city with its own culture and its multi-cultural society: 28% of Frankfurt's inhabitants are non-German and it has the highest rate of foreign tourists in Germany. Most of them are business travelers. Frankfurt is Germany's premier financial center, both the European Central Bank and the German Federal Bank are based in Frankfurt. At least 336 banking institutions are based there. As a result almost as many people work in Frankfurt as there are inhabitants in the city- 650,000city dwellers are offset by almost 569,000 jobs.

Main Tower is located in the middle of the banking district and near the main shopping precinct. According to the motto "Openness", Main Tower is the first bank skyscraper to open its door to the public.

The porcelain manufactory was founded in Hochst am Main in 1746. Being the second oldest facility in Germany, it is a jewel of high cultural importance. It starts with the preparation of the porcelain mass over modeling to hand-painting:
