Dynamic urban region in Europe`s heartland
Frankfurt is the nerve center of the dynamic, diverse Rhine-Main region - one of the most productive areas in Europe.
With a yearly gross domestic product exceeding 150 billion euros and a population of 4.9 million, it is a driving force on the European continent. Many German and international companies have harnessed the power of this European transport hub by locating their headquarters here.
Frankfurt ranks 3rd among Europe`s top business cities, right after London and Paris (in a report by Cushman & Wakefield Healey & Baker).
But the region offers far more than economic strength and a healthy mix of manufacturing and services: The Rhine-Main region is an attractive environment for scientific research and development. It boasts a bounty of scientific universities, institutes and institutions that link theoretical research to industrial applications.
Frankfurt and the region play host to numerous cultural events. There are also many attractive opportunities for recreation nearby.
