World Cup Football 2006 Germany


Home of the Frankfurter, (without which no hot dog is complete and therefore, by extrapolation, no football match either), Frankfurt is home to the German stock exchange and is the financial centre of the nation. The stadium has been purpose-built for the 2006 World Cup.
