In 1949 Frankfurt am Main narrowly failed to be elected capital of West Germany, but it did become the home of the continent's largest stock exchange and the European Central Bank, making it the de facto financial capital of Germany and continental Europe.
Even though Frankfurt is a large financial and trade center, the city is still relatively small. Most of Frankfurt's historic sights are in or near the Altstadt - the city's Old Town - and can best be visited on foot.

At 259m Commerzbank Tower was the tallest building in Europe when it opened in 1997. The building is considered the first 'ecological' skyscraper due to its sky gardens and energy-saving technologies.
The Börse is home to the trading floor of Germany's largest stock exchange. In front of the building are statues of a bull and a bear, symbols of the falling and rising stock markets.
The Museumsufer or Museum Embankment consists of a cluster of museums on the south bank of the river Main. Most museums are housed in large villas, built in the 19th century by wealthy families.
