City of Frankfurt

Stadt Frankfurt

The City of Frankfurt does its best to ensure the well-being of all expatriates.

The Frankfurt-Rhine-Main region is not only one of the most important international business locations in Europe, it is also a pleasant and varied place to live. Everyday life is international and multilingual, given that almost one third of the 650.000 people living in Frankfurt hold a non-German passport. Frankfurt’s airport is also an international hub and its more than 45 million passengers a year make it the second largest in Europe. The Frankfurt Fair, the oldest in the world, is also a global actor: fairs attract almost 2.7 million visitors to Frankfurt in peak years.

Frankfurt is a marketplace for words and ideas. Numerous publishing houses mold the city’s intellectual profile. On the other hand, things are sometimes astonishingly tranquil in the city, especially in its quarters, where the atmosphere can be one of village conviviality, with half-timber houses, narrow streets and traditional Apfelwein (cider) taverns. Besides, the extensive parks, gardens as well as the so called “green belt” around Frankfurt are of great importance for the city’s climate. They give Frankfurt a kind of rural appearance. You will find comprehensive information in English on our Internet site that gives you an overview of the services of the municipality.
