Frankfurt (German: Frankfurt am Main) is the business and financial centre of Germany and the largest city in the German state of Hesse.
The city is known for its futuristic skyline and the busiest German airport.The winters can be cold and rainy (usually not lower than -10 °C/14 °F). If you intend to stay overnight, you may wish to avoid times when trade fairs are held, as this will make finding affordable accommodation a challenging task.The biggest are the Frankfurt Motor Show (Automobil-Ausstellung) every two years in mid-September (next in 2017 and then in 2019) and the Book Fair (Buchmesse) yearly in mid-October; see Fairs for details. The easiest one to get to is inside the Central Station.Further, it is a prime hub for interconnections within Europe and for intercontinental flights.Frankfurt is the most diverse city in Germany and has the highest percentage of foreigners in the country: about 28% (710,000) of Frankfurt's residents have no German passport and another 20% are naturalized German citizens.On the other hand, many off the beaten track neighbourhoods, such as Bockenheim, Bornheim, Nordend and Sachsenhausen, with their intact beautiful 19th century streets and parks are often overlooked by visitors.
