Frankfurt is Germany's second-largest metro area, and displays enthralling extremes between old-world Europe and new-world architecture. Home to over 5.6 million residents, Frankfurt is an internationally-known hub for finance, commerce, transport, culture, and tourism. It often ranks high in international lists for top financial centers, best quality of living, and most expensive cities to live in.
The financial power of Frankfurt is easy to guess by looking at the dazzling skyline photography in our panoramic views. This city is the location of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, German Federal Bank, and European Central Bank. A number of large corporately-owned banks are centrally-located here as well, including Deutsche Bank, DZ Bank and Commerzbank. The convenient position on the Main River aided the city in developing easy access along trade routs, which has continued with the building of the Frankfurt Airport. This is also the home of Frankfurter Kreuz, one of the most heavily-trafficked Autobahn interchanges, and Frankfurt Central Station.
The highest building that can be spotted in our Frankfurt skyline panoramas is Commerzbank Tower, a nearly-850 foot building that held the record of Europe's tallest building until 2003. Another easy to find iconic landmark is the Krone Hochhaus, thanks to its crown-shaped top that is brightly lit at night.
While the lengthy history of the city cannot be imagined simply by looking at a Frankfurt skyline picture, the city continues to interest people the world over because of its stellar power in finance and its home to the world's largest book and music fairs. One would hardly know from photos today that the city was badly damaged during World War II, but it has been restored with inspiring new constructions in the decades since to grow it into one of the greatest cities in the world.
