Frankfurt – main metropolis and headquarter of the bank
City Population: 691,500
Frankfurt is home to the bank's headquarters, where we have more people here than anywhere else in the world. The city is growing, international and diverse, making it the natural home for Deutsche Bank.
We opened our first Frankfurt branch in 1886 and have had our headquarters here since 1957. Since then, the bank and city have grown together and our iconic towers building frames the city’s skyline.
Our management board and almost all of our services and divisions have a presence here – including our Digital Factory and DWS, one of the world’s leading asset managers. We are building a bank of the 21st century across all our businesses. Amongst our many office locations in Frankfurt we have the Deutsche Bank Campus and the historic bank branch at Roßmarkt in the central business district. Working for Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt means being at the centre of everything we do and having unparalleled opportunities to build the career you want.
Deutsche Bank Towers
Deutsche Bank’s headquarters is home to the Management Board and all of the bank’s infrastructure functions. From Finance to Compliance to HR, thousands of our employees work here. The Twin Towers are a striking feature of Frankfurt’s cityscape at 37 stories high. In 2011, the buildings were renovated from the ground up and are now contributing to the bank’s goal to become carbon neutral. In the first two years alone, the building conserved one billion litres of water and reduced the annual heating energy required by nearly 70%.
Deutsche Bank Campus
The eight-story office building was created in 2017 as Deutsche Bank's newest cultural center and is in the middle of the banking district in the neighborhood of the Deutsche Bank Towers. The campus is an innovative platform for the global art landscape. It’s home to artwork by over 140 artists. Investment Banking and DWS are located in the DB Campus. DWS is one of the world's largest Asset Managers and headquartered here.
The International Business Campus (IBC) is in the Bockenheim district near the Frankfurt fair. Our Private and Corporate Bank have offices here. Since 2005, the 765 × 500 cm sculpture "Cash Flow" has been displayed in the entrance.
At the heart of Europe
Frankfurt is a financial hub that’s home to the European Central Bank’s headquarters, the stock exchange, the trade fair exhibition centre and technology companies. Its well-developed infrastructure provides easy access to all markets, both regional and global. In total, the city houses more than 40,000 companies – from industrial operations, logistics firms and small workshops to a wealth of creative agencies and lively start-ups.
Frankfurt’s education infrastructure is as rich and diverse as the people who live here. The broad range of schools include many bilingual schools and day-care centres. Goethe University Frankfurt with its many different areas of study is one Germany’s largest universities and the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management is one of the most prestigious private business schools.
Food and drink
There is nothing that’s impossible to get in Frankfurt – its restaurants span the world’s cuisines. At Kleinmarkthalle, visitors can choose from a cornucopia of local and exotic foods or eat them right there alongside a cup of coffee or glass of prosecco. The regional cooking is distinct as well. Even if “Rippchen mit Kraut” (pork cutlets with sauerkraut) and “Handkäse mit Musik” (vinegar-marinated cheese with onions) are not to everyone’s taste, a rustic evening with an earthenware jug of local apple wine in Sachsenhausen should not be missed. And even Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was a fan of Frankfurt’s famous “green sauce” – made of a mix of herbs and served with eggs and potatoes.
Travel and excursions
Frankfurt is quite literally situated in the centre of Europe. And access to the Frankfurt Airport means the world is your oyster. It takes just two hours to reach nearly every European capital from here. Underground and commuter rail lines connect every corner of the city and the greener pastures beyond its borders. People who live in popular towns in the Taunus region like Oberursel or Bad Homburg can reach the city centre in about half an hour.
Art and culture
The theatre scene in Frankfurt is broad and diverse, featuring the large municipal theatres along with four privately run companies, including the English Theatre, and many smaller independent theatre troupes. Interested in art? You are spoilt for choice in Frankfurt. The Städel on the Schaumainkai and the Schirn in the heart of the city are known well beyond its borders. Film buffs and friends will enjoy visiting the Film Museum, and the Caricatura Museum upholds Frankfurt’s reputation as Germany’s satire capital.
