Avant-garde German Architecture

You’ve never imagined Germany this way. With its stunning, futuristic skyline and Germany’s largest airport, Frankfurt is a lively city, where travelers can find something exciting to do every day. Rich and opulent (the financial capital of Continental Europe), Frankfurt is a city of contrasts. Alongside the most avant-garde skyscrapers, some of Germany’s oldest buildings coexist, carefully preserved, for future generations.
