Westend is known simply as West End.
If Frankfurt’s city finance district is like a slice of New York, then parts of Westend in Frankfurt are like a mix of the grandness of London’s Mayfair and Zurich’s subdued banking areas.
In the streets north of Westend station are fashionable bistros and upmarket restaurants, grand affluent homes, classical villas and apartments, new developments, and many subtle banks; Some are hundreds of year old, some are new in town and ready to bridge the financial hubs of Europe and China. There are numerous financial services firms, including private banking, investment banking, taxation advice, venture capital, hedge funds and consultancies, in the area.
West End is an affluent and stylish cornerstone of Frankfurt, and worth visiting to understand the true nature of Frankfurt’s global role as a financial meeting point in Europe.
There are also open spaces and parks (like Gruneburgpark), a university in neighbouring Bockenheim and the Frankfurt trade fair is within walking distance
