People are always thinking that Frankfurt is such a large city, but that's not really true. "Only" 670,000 live there. Anyway, if you're walking between the skyscrapers, you'll get the feeling of being in New York or Tokyo. But the traffic is more quietly. All the of Europe-German money-business is taking place in that towers.

    Main Cemetery Frankfurt: A Place of Peace

    Open since 1828, the Main Cemetery of Frankfurt offers a place of peace for those who passed on and those who were left behind.

Plus, it is a great place to take the whole family!
