Frankfurt is as famous as a financial centre as it is for its eponymous sausage. The best way to discover this intriguing world of high rollers is to visit the Stock Exchange.
From Monday to Friday, alone or in groups, you can sit in on a 45-minute presentation while observing brokers and traders at work through large display windows. It's also worth visiting just for its architecture: the 19th-century building is known locally as the ‘Cathedral of the Capitalists' because of its 43-metre-high dome. Two bronze statues adorn the outer square: a bull, the traditional symbol of a rise in stock prices, and a bear, the traditional symbol of market decline.
