Skyline of Downtown Frankfurt, Germany

Unlike most European cities, Frankfurt’s downtown skyline is dominated by skyscrapers which earned it the nickname “Mainhattan.” This combines the name of the Main River shown flowing under the Ignatz Bubis Bridge and Manhattan in New York. Frankfurt has almost 300 high-rises and the ten tallest in Germany. And as you can see from the six cranes in this photo, they are undergoing another building boom with more than fifty new towers either under construction or planned.
