Frankfurt airport has more than 460,000 aircraft departures and arrivals each year.
The first highlight appears even before you arrive in the city: the skyline. Frankfurt impresses with its huge amount of stunning skyscrapers, every single one with an extraordinary and outstanding lightning concept. In fact, Frankfurt is the only city in Germany with a major skyline – within Europe only London and Paris can keep up with it.
The reason for this architectural uniqueness can be found in the years after the Second World War. Not much of the once largest connected old town of Frankfurt is left. Even the now very popular and crowded picturesque Römerberg with its framed, half-timbered houses and the town hall had to be reconstructed completely. It was back then when Frankfurt decided to shape up for the future and to become a city, open – and attractive - to the world.
