The Main metropolis is well ahead in a new city ranking

The Frankfurt Rhine-Main metropolitan region is one of the most successful metropolitan regions in Germany. Despite a current and forecast decline in average population in Germany, due to its national and international attractiveness the region has succeeded in countering these negative development tendencies and has successfully positioned itself. Success factors include the financial and economic center of Frankfurt and the great regional significance of the tertiary sector.


The economic institute HWWI and Berenberg Bank have made an evaluation according to which Frankfurt offers the best perspectives among 30 German cities – even better than Munich. The largest German cities have experienced economic development above the national average over the past few years. Thus the 30 cities taken into consideration recovered more quickly from the financial crisis and the following crisis in the real economy than Germany as a whole.
