Hesse is the fifth largest German Federal State. It became a federal state after World War II with the merger of Hesse Darmstadt with former Prussian territory. It is a major hub of German industry and finance with around 400 banks within its borders. Frankfurt Am Main has been compared to New York's Manhattan area not only for the way it appears but also for the fact that it is a major finance center.
Visitors in this state will be pleasantly surprised by the quaint baroque and half-timber style houses and buildings. Some favorite features in Hesse include the City of Frankfurt Am Main, the Benedictine Abbey at Seligenstadt, the Kurhaus in Weisbaden and the areas surrounding the Diemel and Weser Rivers in the North and the Nekar River in the South.
