The banking city of Frankfurt welcomes visitors arriving at one of the biggest airports in the world. Digital nomads are heading here in droves as they follow the coliving trend that has made its way to this buzzing little metropolis.
Historical and modern sights await you. Strolling around downtown, you will pass the town hall, Paul’s Church, and the Imperial Cathedral.
