Once you’ve arrived at Frankfurt International Airport, cleared customs, and collected your car rental vehicle, you can exit the terminal and see Frankfurt’s futuristic skyline almost immediately.
However, not all of Frankfurt’s architecture is new and there are some quaint old buildings to see in Romer Square, which is the heart of the old town.
Frankfurt is located in the German state of Hesse, where it is the largest city. The city is built on the banks of the River Main and has the distinction of being the financial capital of Europe and the banking capital of Germany.
Not only is Frankfurt filled with many well-available financial workers, but it has a large student population with quite a few learning institutions based there. Frankfurt also has a large and varied immigrant population, making it a very diverse city. Frankfurt has an incredible number of fascinating museums, but visitors should note that they are generally closed on Mondays, although they are open the rest of the days of the week. Many travelers head to Frankfurt to see two impressive fairs, the Frankfurt Motor Show and the Frankfurt Book Fair, attracting the global attention of motoring and reading enthusiasts. The auto show is biannual and takes place in mid-September, while the book fair occurs annually in mid-October.
If you are in town for these fairs, parking and accommodation can be a problem. Make sure to book the latter well in advance and consider using a park and ride facility so you don’t get stuck trying to do the former. Parking on weekends is always difficult and it is worth using the underground garages, which are relatively inexpensive to avoid having your car towed.
