Frankfurt is the fifth-largest city of Germany after Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, and Cologne. Situated on the River Main, the city is named after the Franks. Frankfurt was a city-state, the Free City of Frankfurt, for nearly five centuries. It was one of the most important cities of the Holy Roman Empire, as a site of imperial coronations.

Frankfurt lost its sovereignty upon the collapse of the empire in 1806 and then permanently in 1866 when the Kingdom of Prussia annexed it.

Frankfurt is home to influential educational institutions, and many museums such as the Museumsufer ensemble with Städel and Liebieghaus, Senckenberg Natural Museum, Goethe House, and the Schirn art venue at the old town.

Frankfurt is characterized by various green areas and parks, including the central Wallanlagen, the City Forest, and two significant botanical gardens, the Palmengarten, the University’s Botanical Garden, and the Frankfurt Zoo.
