Welcome – here you will find all about film and filming in the City of Frankfurt!

Frankfurt is a great city and has a lot to offer – so take a close look!See video →



… a city with heart and atmosphere, the economic center of Hessen and …

  1. 1

    Thanks to its excellent infrastructure, Frankfurt am Main is not only easy to get to but also extremely well-connected. In no time at all, you can reach any European or international market – whether by plane, car, or train. And as far as digital data exchange is concerned, Frankfurt is one of the most important hubs in the world.

    Diverse in all matters! Maintaining and increasing its diversity is Frankfurt’s goal both economically and culturally. With its varied range of industries, Frankfurt is dynamic and resilient. A broadly accessible calendar of cultural events is the basis for relaxation and recreation.

    International! Frankfurt is international in any respect, whether entrepreneurial, culinary or cultural. More than 170 nations work and live here side by side.

    Frankfurt has become a City of Art. The Städelschule, the Portikus, the MMK Museum of Modern Art, the Schirn and the Kunstverein have successfully established contemporary art in the city. Several studio houses and galleries have introduced new art and boosted the existing art scene.
    The Culture Board of the city is promoting science, literature, film and music, art in public places, supports artists and the international exchange of culture.

    48 per cent of the total city area comprises open spaces and water. And if you look closely, you will see palm trees along the Main, dunes in the GreenBelt, a wilderness at the former airfield and large ­expanses of woodland. Frankfurt has the right shade of green for everyone.

    There are more than 40 parks in the city. Some of them, like the Volkspark Niddatal, are fairly ­untamed in character, while others, like the Chinese Garden, have a more medi­tative aura. Most of them have been created from the magnificent gardens owned by the Rothschild, Bethmann and Brentano families – English-style landscaping with beautiful old trees. There are over 50 lakes and ponds, some 100 hectares of well-kept green spaces along the Main and the Nidda and, of couse, the Palmengarten, which is known far beyond the city’s boundaries.

    Desire on green and recreation? Take a look at Frankfurt Green City.
