Frankfurt am Main, commonly known as Frankfurt, is the largest city in the German state of Hessen and the fifth-largest city in Germany, with a population of 687,775 within its administrative boundaries. The actual urban area has a population of 2,500,000. The city is at the centre of the larger Frankfurt Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region which has a population of 5,600,000 and is Germany's second-largest metropolitan region.

It is home to the European Central Bank, Deutsche Bundesbank, Frankfurt Stock Exchange and several large commercial banks. The European Central Bank is the central bank of the eurozone, consisting of 18 EU member states that have adopted the euro as their common currency and sole legal tender. The Deutsche Bundesbank is the central bank of Germany and as such part of the European System of Central Banks. LESS
A nationwide injunction issued against on-demand ride-hailing service Uber in Germany has been lifted by a local court in Frankfurt during an appeal hearing. The ban was issued by the same court late last month, after a civil action brought by the German taxi industry. In a statement posted online today, Uber welcomed the lifting of the ban, and said it also “strongly” welcomed a suggestion by the German Minister for the economy, Sigmar Gabriel, and other political decision-makers “to enter into open dialogue on uberPOP”, adding: “We are at their disposal.”
