Travelers to Germany usually book Icelandair flights to Frankfurt for business. This engaging metropolitan financial center boasts a spectacular modern skyline, with ancient architectural jewels hidden beneath the tall beams.
A historical perspective of Frankfurt
Situated on the banks of the Main river, Frankfurt’s dominating skyscrapers belie the history and culture that have brought Frankfurt from a Roman settlement in the first century to a preeminent banking center in the 21st.
Kings of the Holy Roman Empire were customarily elected there during the Middle Ages, emperors were crowned there, education and knowledge flourished, defensive walls were built and dismantled, revolutions were won and lost, and trade and commerce flourished.
German banking and city life
Those in the finance industry love to save with our cheap flights to Frankfurt, the second most important commercial center in Europe. When the Deutsche Bundesbank (German Federal Bank) made Frankfurt its seat, most major banks followed suit. The Bundesbank’s success as well as its geographical and political location in Europe led the European Central Bank to be built in its image, also located in Frankfurt. The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the largest of eight German exchanges, and one of the biggest marketplaces in the world.
With more than 40 museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Kunsthalle Schirn, the Stadelsches Kunstinstitut and the German Cinema Museum, Frankfurt is an art lover’s delight. The Museum Embankment – a collection of 13 museums on both sides of the Main – along with other cultural sites, historic buildings (including the Goethe House, birthplace of Germany’s greatest poet) and festivities make Frankfurt an internationally recognized center for culture and the arts.
