Frankfurt is laying the groundwork to become Europe's next financial capital after Britain leaves the EU.
Promoters say the city combines high-tech infrastructure with low costs compared to other European financial centers.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May says she'll only do Brexit her way, and the UK's master of loose talk is back in the news. Meanwhile, Labour could have a last shot at a second referendum and London finance is taking a hit.
Frankfurt was Germany's financial hub even before the European Central Bank was headquartered here. That's why many in the city's banking district are especially optimistic about Britain's exit from the EU.
Frankfurt is not the tourist destination that Paris is, but in the competition to host financial institutions leaving London because of Brexit, it is holding its own.
