Frankfurt, Germany

Frankfurt Am Main (Hessen)- positioned centrally within Europe, has become an international trade fair and financial city. It boasts Europe's second largest airport and largest railway station.

Seasonal visitors are attracted to the many special events in Frankfurt; among them are the annual Motor Show, 2 commercial fairs and the Buchmesse, or Book Fair, which draws international publishers every fall. Those interested in sampling traditional German food and apple wine should explore Sachsenhausen, an area with many restaurants and cider taverns.

The city also owns the largest community-owned forest in Germany. The Stadtwald, with its innumerable paths and trails, is a popular recreation area. The Waldlehrpafad is a trail that passes many old and rare trees, each of which is identified and described on small signs. The old Goetheturm (Goethe Tower) near Sachsenhausen affords a wonderful view of Frankfurt and the Taunus Mountains. These nearby mountains also can be visited on half-day and full-day tours, and are noted for their scenery and spas.
Have A Nice Day to y'all..........
