Escorted Rail Tours to Frankfurt
Germany's economic powerhouse
The huge metropolis of Frankfurt, sprawled out across the River Main, boasts a long history and an energetic city centre, full of vibrant, modern culture and a true international flavour.
Nicknamed 'Bankfurt', the city is home to most of the country's financial institutions including the stock exchange, reflecting its futuristic look with its many towering skyscrapers. This look was not entirely by choice; in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, the heavily bomb-damaged city cemented its historic role as an economic powerhouse, rising from the ashes with its new skyscrapers to play a major role in Germany's recovery.
