Dubai is the largest city in the United Arab Emirates and also a major economic hub. The construction booms of recent years have created an impressive skyline which includes the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world at 829 metres. Tourism plays an important role in the metropolis, where it is summer all year round.
Dubai is one of the most modern cities in the world and is developing at a rapid pace. Attesting to the strength of the bond, the city of Frankfurt am Main erected a literature-themed sculpture in the Dubai International Friendship Garden. Regular exchanges between the political and business communities help to deepen relations.
