Frankfurt am Main is an easily accessible national and international transport hub, which has certainly contributed to making it a diverse and colorful cityscape. People from 180 nations live in a city which counts, from an economic perspective, as a metropolis; yet, people also meet after work in the taverns for a drink of Frankfurt’s traditional cider in the often village-like districts. The city on the river Main is additionally home to a wide spectrum of cultural institutions that often originate from foundations and private initiatives as a result of a long civic tradition.
