Frankfurt (am Main), October 2016

 
The destination for our field trip during the WS 2016/2017 was Frankfurt. Frankfurt is one of Germany´s major cities and offers various reasons for a visit. Besides counting many historical landmarks and numerous cultural events, the city along the river Main is also the financial hub of Germany. Numerous national and international banks, the European Central Bank, and the German stock exchange are located in this metropole.

Our program was fortunate to be invited to participate in an exclusive roundtable discussion with Jens Weidmann, Bundesbank President, and Klaas Knot, President of de Nederlandsche Bank. The event was scheduled to take place at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The Netherlands and Flanders were that year´s Guest of Honor. Around 60 international students, all having a focus on European Studies, enjoyed a lively and enthusiastic discussion along the main questions "What does the euro mean to you and the people of Europe? What does the future hold for our single currency?".  

In addition to this event, we did not miss the opportunity to take a stroll along the downtown streets of Frankfurt. Famous sites and points of interests were presented by the director of the program, Dr. Johannes Müller, who is not only Frankfurt native, but obtained his PhD in the field of German history.
