Frankfurt

Frankfurt am Main is the largest city in the German state of Hesse and the fifth-largest city in Germany.

A settlement since at least 3000BC, Frankfurt's long and successful history of commerce stemmed initially from its central geographical location on the Main River and the Frankfurt Messe (fair). The Messe has been going since the 12th century (it is mentioned in a Jewish manuscript dating from 1160) and the city received its official Imperial privilege to hold an annual trade fair in 1240. Frankfurt got its name around AD500, when the Franks ruled the area and the settlement along the Main Fort transportation route became known as Franconovurd.

The city's climate is generally mild and well balanced with warm, occasionally wet, days in summer, with temperatures sometimes even reaching 30C (90�F), and chilly winter days, when temperatures range between - 10�C (14�F) and 10�C (40�F).

Skyscrapers housing major financial institutions dominate the scene in the central business district. The Westend is both a residential and business district. Nearby, the Marktplatz (former Market Square), R�mer (City Hall), the Kaiserdom (Emperor Cathedral), Paulskirche (Church of St Paul) and the Nikolaikirche (Nicholas Church) are among the attractions of the Altstadt (Old Town). The Bahnhofsviertel (around the main railway station), especially Kaiserstrasse, is the city's red light district, although the ubiquitous seediness has developed into a popular and lively entertainment scene. Fourteen museums make up the longest mile of museums in Europe.

Traditional Kneipen (bars) are cluster around the Alt Sachsenhausen district, but are increasingly being crowded out by more modern establishments with an international ambience. Many of Frankfurt's top hotels have excellent bars that attract outsiders as well as guests and are particularly popular with visiting businesspeople. Many bars in Frankfurt also offer live music, particularly jazz. The best venues are around Kleine Bockenheimer Strasse, otherwise known as Jazzgasse (Jazz Alley).
