Frankfurt am Main

frankfurtA world-famous banking and air traffic hub, Frankfurt am Main has far more to offer than offices and rush hours. In 2015, it is in the spotlight as the location of the official celebrations for 25 years of German Unity.

Set on the river Main, the German banking city combines traditional and modern architecture in boroughs such as Bornheim, Westend and Ostend. It is the birthplace of world-renowned poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, author of German classics such as “Faust” and “The Sorrows of Young Werther”.


Frankfurt Book Fair

Frankfurt is known for the Frankfurt Book Fair (FBF), which is the world’s largest trade fair for books with around 7,100 exhibitors from more than 100 countries. More than 400,000 books, maps, manuscripts, audio books and e-books are presented annually in mid-October. 

The fair also gathers experts from other media, including the film and games industries. Frankfurt’s Book Fair is considered a great opportunity for writers, publishers, agencies and booksellers to network. But it is also a fascinating event for private visitors, who are welcomed during the last two days.
