Living in Frankfurt
Frankfurt’s landmark is the skyline. Be it high skyscrapers that reflect in the water of the river Main or the view from the Maintower over the whole city where you can see the hills of the Taunus when the weather is good. Frankfurt aims high: It is no surprise that nine out of ten of Germany’s highest buildings are in Frankfurt. The highest one is the Sir Norman Foster Commerzbank Tower with a height of 259 m.
The dynamic metropolis offers a high standard of living. The city is surprisingly green, has a lot to offer when it comes to cultural events and an interesting nightlife. Culinary, Frankfurt offers a lot as well. Maybe due to the international community and its influences or the traditional local apple wine and its accompanying food, no one knows, but it makes for a diverse scope that can fulfill anyone’s needs.
Frankfurt is considered a commuter’s city. It is calmer on weekends than on weekdays. 300,000 people commute to the city daily. This has led to an excellent infrastructure that connects the buzzing inner city with the outer, greener suburbs of Frankfurt.
