The largest district in Frankfurt on the Main
Frankfurt-West describes the western districts of the city. With around 130,000 inhabitants, it is the largest district of the Main metropolis. The centre of culture and economic life is the Frankfurt-Hoechst district, which was incorporated in the spring of 1928. Frankfurt-Hoechst is characterized by its well-preserved iconic old town with many half-timbered buildings, the picturesque Schlossplatz with its castle, as well as the baroque Bolongaropalast .
Sometimes, even Frankfurters seem to be a little surprised by the beauty and sights of the district of Hoechst. This is largely due to the fact that Hoechst is mostly associated with Industriepark Hoechst (Industrial Park, formerly Farbwerke Hoechst) but also with other industrial sites in the west, such as Industriepark Griesheim. The current population of Höchst is 15,685.
Further districts in Frankfurt West: Schwanheim, Griesheim, Nied, Sindlingen, Zeilsheim, Unterliederbach, Sossenheim.
