Frankfurt has achieved dynamics, stability and crisis resistance mainly thanks to the great diversity of the resident companies. Though the city is most famous as a financial hub, Frankfurt is also home to many key target industries, such as the creative industries, IT and telecommunications, biotechnology and life science, logistics and industrial production. Quick and direct market access is guaranteed by local institutions and educational facilities.
Thanks to its excellent infrastructure, Frankfurt is easy to reach and very well connected. All European and international markets can be reached in next to no time. Frankfurt Airport is the eighth biggest airport worldwide, with 59 million travelers every year. The well-developed interstate and railway networks make Frankfurt one of the major traffic hubs in Europe. And as a digital center, Frankfurt is among the key data traffic nodes worldwide. In addition, Frankfurt is known as the city of short distances, which makes it very popular among people navigating the city.
Frankfurt’s strong international alignment fosters a top-quality workforce potential, which is complemented by international and company-associated educational facilities. About one in three professors at the Goethe University is from abroad; 20 international preschools and 13 international schools further underscore the city’s cosmopolitan character. This atmosphere also has an effect on the diversity of the cultural offerings: an extensive cultural program that caters to every taste, numerous leisure time options right outside of the city, as well as the continuously growing portfolio of top-quality residential property ensure a very high quality of life in Frankfurt.
