Frankfurt Am Main, Germany

Reconstruction (1981–1984) of six houses at the east side of the Römerberg
that were destroyed in World War II

We visited Frankfurt Am main last March 15, 2008. This is the place where I first landed in Germany at the Frankfurt International Airport where my ex boyfriend who is now my husband fetched me. That was a very exciting part of my love story!! the other part would be secret!!...wink!! Frankfurt is called as the Manhattan in Germany according to one travel book that I read..We had a great time here while going around the city especially in the Altstadt (old City)..that was another interesting trip!! Please read below for some infos about Frankfurt Am main..courtesy of Wikipedia..thanks a lot for this info dear Wiki!! hope you enjoy watching the photos here..

Frankfurt am Main (help·info) (German: [ˈfʁaŋkfʊɐtʰ], English: [ˈfɹæŋkfɜːt]) is the largest city in the German state of Hesse and the fifth-largest city in Germany, with a 2008 population of 670,000. The urban area had an estimated population of 2.26 million in 2001.[1] The city is at the centre of the larger Frankfurt Rhine Main Region which has a population of 5.3 million and is Germany's second largest metropolitan area. In English, this city's name translate as "Frankfurt on the Main". A large early tribe in the area was the Franks and in German "Furt" means a river crossing. Thus, in medieval times, "Frankfurt" meant the Franks' river crossing.

Situated on the Main River, Frankfurt is the financial and transportation centre of Germany and the largest financial centre in continental Europe.It is the place of residence of the European Central Bank, the German Federal Bank, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the Frankfurt Trade Fair, as well as several large commercial banks. Frankfurt International Airport is one of the world's busiest airports, Frankfurt Central Station is one of the largest terminal stations in Europe, and the Frankfurter Kreuz (Autobahn interchange) is the most heavily used interchange in continental Europe. Frankfurt is the only German city listed as one of ten Alpha world cities.[2] Frankfurt lies in the former American Occupation Zone of Germany, and it was formerly the headquarters city of the U.S. Army in Germany, but what is left of that organization has moved out of Frankfurt to some more remote location.

Among English speakers the city is commonly known simply as "Frankfurt", though Germans occasionally call it by its full name when it is necessary to distinguish it from the other (significantly smaller) "Frankfurt" in the state of Brandenburg, Frankfurt (Oder).
