About Frankfurt:

Frankfurt Am Main is often dubbed the most ‘cosmopolitan’ city of Germany. Nearly 25% of Frankfurt residents are foreign nationals, which creates an abundance of cultural offerings, including restaurants, theaters, festivities and more. The city conscutively made the Top 10 in the Mercer ranking for quality of living. It is safe and beautiful.

It stands tall with an impressive skyline and an equally impressive
reputation as Germany’s financial capital. The recent economic boom has
meant that more people across the globe are considering a move to the city.
