Thank you Germany: Part 064: A very special spirit blows through Frankfurt


There are some cities in Germany of which one can be particularly proud. Frankfurt is without a doubt one of these cities. Even the poet prince Goethe travelled here. But the special amenities of museums, theatres and cultural institutions are also part of the city. Finally, the city is the location of the European Central Bank and also offers many other banks and stock exchange companies a place to do business.

Money and spirit thus come together in Frankfurt. Since time immemorial, they have formed a unique bond in the city. Many patrons donated money for artistic and cultural production. The creation of the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research was also a project that resulted from such cooperation. To this day, the city enjoys a special reputation in sociology worldwide because of this institute. It is associated with the important names of the so-called Frankfurt School.

Philosophers like Theodor W. Adorno and Max Horkheimer are also admired in America, the name Walter Benjamin is also known to art historians and literary scholars and great things are associated with him. The special atmosphere of the combination of a departure into a new era and a tangible sociological critique of society still characterises Frankfurt today. The city offers people and companies from all over the world a very special place to gain a foothold in Germany. Every third citizen in Frankfurt does not have a German passport. There is a deliberate global orientation here. This is also a special prerequisite for economic productivity.

But culturally, too, Frankfurt continues to offer exciting productions. Hardly any other city in Germany has as many theatre productions as Frankfurt. In other countries in Europe, too, there are probably only a few cities that can match this particular wealth of culture. It is a particularly interesting location: on the one hand, so many different cultures come together in this place. On the other hand, German cultural production in particular revitalises itself here with ever new works of art. Perhaps it is precisely the invigorating contact and conversation with people from all over the world that ensures that there are so many new ideas and projects here. But the good financial framework conditions may also be responsible for this.

The many banks and rich companies do not live parallel to the city. They relate to it quite consciously. This means that many research projects, cultural institutions and museums receive very targeted support from their side. The city’s educational work also benefits greatly from these locational conditions. The institutions know this and some have therefore very specifically chosen Frankfurt as the starting point for their own work. It’s no wonder that the creative scene also keeps founding new start-ups and projects here.

The metropolis also offers exactly the right conditions for this. Those who love culture, but also those who are looking for a good location to start a small business, are undoubtedly well advised to choose Frankfurt. But the intercultural charm of the city and the open political nature of the people of Frankfurt are also among the special advantages of this city. You simply have to love Germany for beautiful Frankfurt. In beautiful Frankfurt you can enjoy Germany from its cosmopolitan side.
