Frankfurt’s role as one of Europe’s most important transportation hubs is a key locational advantage.
As home to the headquarters of the European Central Bank, Frankfurt can also be considered the home of the euro. The logistics sector and the creative industry are also prominent. Greater Frankfurt is an important industrial centre, particularly for biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, chemicals, automation and materials technology. Nowhere else in Germany do so many international businesses have their headquarters.
With more than 30 trade fairs, Frankfurt is a leading trade fair venue. The region is also an important transportation hub, with the largest cargo airport in continental Europe, the busiest train station in Germany, and the intersection of its two busiest motorways. Moreover, the Rhine and Main rivers are Europe’s most important inland waterways. By any measure, Frankfurt is one of the most interesting markets in Germany for commercial real estate.
