Learning German in Frankfurt
Frankfurt, the site of the world-famous Frankfurt Book Fair, has a long tradition of forging strong links between capital and the arts. The city is home to some 100 publishing houses. Among the superlatives setting Frankfurt apart are its airport, which is one the world's largest, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the city's dramatic, modern skyline, unrivalled in Germany. The row of skyscrapers towering over the banks of the Main River have earned Frankfurt the nickname "Mainhattan". Frankfurt is the only German metropolis classified as an alpha city.
