Officially, only around 750,000 people live within the city limits of Frankfurt, but the entire FrankfurtRheinMain Metropolitan Area is home to almost 5.8 million people. This makes the region one of the economically strongest in all of Europe. On average, skilled workers in Frankfurt earn around 20% more than in other German cities.
But Frankfurt is not all about work. Hardly anywhere else in Germany you encounter such great concentration of life in an international metropolis, nature, and culture. Short paths lead into the green, such as the Taunus or the Odenwald mountains. Around 574,000 hectares of forest and recreational areas are available for sports and leisure activities. That corresponds to almost 39 percent of the regional area.
Numerous renowned museums, institutions, and festivals such as the Frankfurt Fashion Week ensure a lively cultural offer. This makes FrankfurtRheinMain a wonderful place to live and work.
