As Germany's financial center, Frankfurt is a common business travel destination. However, tourists will also find this city on the Main River enchanting. The skyline of "Mainhattan" shows off the modern side of the metropolis, but visitors do not have to search far to find history in the city. Travelers can visit the Church of St. Bartholomew, also known as the Imperial Cathedral, where Holy Roman emperors were chosen and crowned for centuries. The historic Romerberg square hosts many outdoor festivals, including the popular Christmas Market in November and December. And those looking for fun will certainly find it in one of the Sachsenhausen district's restaurants, live music venues, or bars.

Flights to Frankfurt land at continental Europe's largest airport, Frankfurt International Airport. Rail travel is a major form of transportation in Germany, and the city's train station is the busiest in the nation.
