Frankfurt – the world’s smallest metropolis

Altstadt_Römer_Stadtteile

 

All roads lead to Frankfurt.
Anyone who travels a lot has probably already been through the city, or at least to the airport, main train station or through the autobahn intersection, since Frankfurt’s central location makes it one of Europe's most important hubs.
On a regional level, Frankfurt is also well located in the geographical center of the Rhine-Main region, which has five million residents, over 350 000 of whom commute into the city from outside every day.

Frankfurt’s favorite tipple – cider

Just as beer is the traditional drink in Bavaria, cider is favored by Hessian citizens.
Locally produced cider has an alcholic content of about 5.5%.
It’s served from a “Bembel” jug into a “Gerippte,” the classic ribbed cider glass, and is drunk at a cool 10-12° C.
About 40 million liters of cider are produced every year in the state of Hesse.
