Continuing our virtual education global tour, our next fun facts stop is Frankfurt Germany. Recognized as the country financial capital, it also boasts one of the largest airports in Europe.
The name of the city is derived from the Franconofurd of the Germanic tribe of the Franks. Frankfurt is located on the ancient ford (German: Furt) on the river Main.
It is the home of the Frankfurter (Hot Dog). Frankfurter Wurstchen were supposedly distributed to the people during special events like imperial coronations.
Famous historical residents include Goethe (poet, playwright, novelist, scientist, statesman, theatre director and critic) and Johannes Gutenberg (invented the printing press).
The airport that I traveled through many times is Europe’s fourth-biggest (and Germany’s largest) has a baggage system equivalent to the length of one and half marathons (67 km / 41.6 miles) and receives more that 60 million passengers per year.
Frankfurt is one of the cities where I appeared on stage to present my continuously updated “The Disruptive Future of Retail.” Great pleasure spending time with European and global retailers, enjoying great German food and beer, and reminding ourselves that it’s a small world after all.
