Frankfurt is part of the Land of Hesse, and is bisected by the River Main. The centre is on the north side of the river. Frankfurt claims to be at the geographical centre of Europe, between Amsterdam (440 km), Paris (600 km), London (640 km) and Milan (670 km).
The commercial centre of the city is centred around Zeilstraße, on which the huge commercial centre the Zeilgalerie is located. The Römerplatz, where you will find the city hall, is often used for fairs, including the city's Christmas market.
Frankfurt has 655,000 inhabitants (2005) and has 6 important districts:

It is interesting to note that Frankfurt's skyscrapers are quite narrow compared to those found in other cities. This is due to the requirement to build them on enormous concrete pilings, up tp 4m thick, to avoid them sinking into the soft ground of the Main valley.
