After months of rebuilding work and some small delays, today was finally the day: The completely redesigned website of the city of Frankfurt has gone online. From now on http://www.frankfurt.de offers all known offers and new content not only in a contemporary design, but can also be read and operated easily on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Furthermore, the presentation is barrier-free. From now on, all Frankfurt residents are invited to try out the new offer.
In times of constantly changing technology and user behaviour, a redesign of the site was urgently needed. Mayor Peter Feldmann, who said about the relaunch: "The online world is fast-moving, so a website that is more than ten years old has been out of date for half an eternity. It is good that we now have a modern website". The new frankfurt.de also offers many advantages for the IT department head Jan Schneider: "The content is clearly structured, orientation and navigation have been simplified. With the technology on which the new website is based, we are also creating the basis for further online services of the city administration. </The development of the new website was a very labour-intensive process in which the entire city administration was involved. Now the public can taste the fruits of this work. In recent months, the texts and images, which comprise several thousand pages, have been produced by inter-office editorial teams. In the future, the information will be presented in a more citizen-friendly way. The previous office-centred structure has been replaced by a topic-oriented presentation. </p>
The new website shows the offers of the city of Frankfurt am Main clearly arranged in different subject areas, divided into three main sections "Service & City Hall", "Frankfurt Themes" and "Discover & Experience Frankfurt". In addition to the services provided by the offices, such as office hours and online forms, the website also contains the latest news from the city council, offices and companies, events and general information about the city of Frankfurt and the city districts. Videos are also part of the offer. Why don't you take a look for yourself? www.frankfurt.de
