Due to its geographical position, at the crossroads of Europe, business travel has been synonymous with Frankfurt since the Middle Ages. Located in central Germany, on the banks of the Main River, Frankfurt hosts thousands of conferences, fairs, meetings and events every year. The International Motor Show or the IMEX Frankfurt are two good examples. Frankfurt has one of Europe’s busiest airports, carrying more than 64.000 million passengers last year and is rated as the world’s busiest airport. It flies to more than 300 destinations on 5 continents and complements the ease of access and travel with the country’s excellent road infrastructure and of course with high-speed trains. For all these reasons it is easy to see why Frankfurt is almost always on the road to business around the world!
Frankfurt is not the largest German city in terms of population, but it is the financial capital of the country. It is where the European Central Bank, the stock exchange and the Bundesbank, as well as some other large German banks, are housed. Frankfurt is a truly international city, a fact that becomes even more evident if we consider that about a third of its population is not of German origin! Its internationalization is also due to the number of people who arrive daily and depart from this City. Whether it’s just a stopover in Frankfurt’s frenetic international airport (FRA) or a longer business trip, it’s sure to get almost all frequent business travelers to this German city.
The offer in terms of hotels and catering is complete and varied. You can opt for elegant, classic-looking hotels such as the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof or more modern ones such as Rocco Forte – Villa Kennedy. If you want to book a special dinner with clients or colleagues, consider a reservation at Zarges. The exquisite decoration combined with good cuisine will definitely leave a mark. For a more casual meal but without losing the German authenticity opt for one of the many typical tavernas. The Atschel for example may be a good option.
