Frankfurt - City of Contrasts

Frankfurt has always been characterised by its colourful variety of urban contrasts. The Main metropolis, home of Germany´s only true downtown skyline, has gained widespread historical acclaim as the coronation site of German kings and emperors, as Goethe’s birthplace, and as the site of Germany’s first national assembly in 1848. Today, it is equally well known as an international trade show location and as one of Europe’s foremost business and finance centres. History and modernity - side by side!

Wine and Viticulture in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region

Few German cities are able to say that they dispose over their own vineyard. Frankfurt, however, is one of them. Thanks to the renowned "Lohrberg", Frankfurters have a slice of the famous Rheingau wine-growing region on their very doorstep. The wines produced by the vineyards at "Hochheimer Stein", "Hochheimer Hölle" and "Lohrberger Hang" are made from grapes cultivated by the City of Frankfurt´s time-honoured municipal vineyard.
