An Overview of Frankfurt

Germany’s fifth largest city, Frankfurt am Main, is the nation’s economic powerhouse, as well as being a highly regarded cultural center. Located in the middle of the highly productive Rhine-Main region, right at the center of Europe, the city is the financial heart not only of Germany, but also of the European Union. The modern skyscrapers of banks and big business in the central business district are potent symbols of Frankfurt’s economic strength and create a skyline that is more North American than European in aspect – indeed, the city is often dubbed ‘Mainhattan’ (source).

Frankfurt is the most international city in Germany, the largest financial centre on the continent, the historical city of coronations, the city of Goethe and the Frankfurt School. In brief, it may be considered the smallest metropolis in the world. A city with a savoir-vivre, in whose streets multilingualism is an accepted way of life, Frankfurt brings opposites together in the most fruitful way and in a most enjoyable manner (source). The people in Frankfurt are a sociable group. The city is always filled with travelers and tourists and the German people are very open to them. They lend a helping hand, try their best to speak English, and are a friendly group of people (source).

Religion in Frankfurt

Religion and its practice form an important part of the German Constitution. According to the Constitution of Germany, freedom of faith and religion is guaranteed to every individual. Discrimination based on difference of religious opinion is prohibited by the Constitution (source).

The city itself has a population who follow diverse religions. Though two thirds of the people believe in Christianity, there are also sets of people who say that they have no religion and also those who belong to non-Christian faith communities such as Muslims and Jews. The Bahai sect is commonly present in the city, as well as Pentecostal groups and Jehovah’s Witnesses (source).

Would you pray that God would send more laborers to this city and country to lift His name high?
