History of Frankfurt

The history of Frankfurt goes back to the late 1st century when it was a Roman settlement and military base. The city owes its name to Charlemagne, king of the Franks and Holy Roman Emperor, who called it “Furt der Franken” (ford of the Franks). Thanks to the extensive Exhibition and Trade Fair Centre, the excellent infrastructure and the airport, one of the biggest European airline hubs, as well as its reputation as the German financial capital, the metropolis is today one of the major economic centres and transport gateways in Europe.

Being home to the European Central Bank and the headquarters of numerous major future-oriented companies, Frankfurt is an important economic and financial hub on international level.
