Germany - Frankfurt am Main (DE-208003)

Frankfurt am Main is another German city that I haven't been to. There's also a smaller city called Frankfurt (Oder) in East Germany. Actually, a half of that Frankfurt is in Poland and is called Słubice. But that's absolutely different place than the one shown on this card :)

Frankfurt am Main is the largest city in the German state of Hesse and the fifth-largest city in Germany, with a 2008 population of 670,000. The city is at the centre of the larger Frankfurt Rhine Main Region which has a population of 5.3 million and is Germany's second largest metropolitan area.

Situated on the River Main, Frankfurt is the financial and transportation centre of Germany and one of the two largest financial centres in continental Europe, the other being Paris.
