Frankfurt (literally meaning “fort of the Franks”) was founded sometime around 750 AD, as part of the Frankish kingdom. Situated on the banks of the river Main, it was originally the site of a Roman fortress much older than the city itself. It has been one of the most important cities in what is now called Germany for over a thousand years, and today it is one of the busiest cities in Europe.
Frankfurt International Airport is one of the busiest in all of Europe. Because the city is a major center of business in the Eurozone, direct flights to Frankfurt are extremely common. It is only a few miles from the city center, so getting from the airport into town is easy by bus, taxi, or commuter train (S-Bahn). It takes only a few minutes.
Frankfurt is an extremely modern city with a clean and efficient public transportation system, and this is the best way to get around once you are there. Buses, trams, and Underground serve most major areas of the city, and are generally very reliable. (The exception is the S-Bahn, or commuter train, which serves areas outside the city, including the airport, and often has delays of thirty minutes or more – if you plan to take the S-Bahn to catch a flight, be sure to leave extra time.)
German food, especially in the southern regions where Frankfurt is located, is very distinctive. It is largely dominated by various forms of sausage, served with bread, cheese, and other foods. While in Frankfurt, try to sample at least 3 or 4 different kinds, since they are all very different. Of course, Frankfurt is the home of the Frankfurter, or hot dog, which is known all over the world, especially in America.
