Frankfurt, Germany -- Despite Europe's plans for a single market, a single currency and a single central bank, its financial capitals are battling in a bid for dominance.At the heart of the struggle is the belief that Europe's pending integration means only one city -- Frankfurt, London or Paris -- will survive as a major financial center. Although London is ahead in the race, Frankfurt is scrambling to win what Germans believe is their rightful place as the European Community's financial and economic heart.

Beginning next summer, Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport will host Condor Airlines, a German carrier offering service to continental Europe and adding some needed heft to the airport's "international" stock. Condor will provide twice-weekly service to Frankfurt, a major international hub that offers connections to cities throughout Europe and Asia. The seasonal flights begin July 2 and are available now for booking. Jens Boyd, head of revenue management at Condor, recently talked to The Baltimore Sun about Baltimore, German beer and why Frankfurt is the perfect city for a layover.

A group of 10 of us, all of Finnish background, would like to plan a trip to Finland. Can you recommend any tour groups? Several U.S.-based tour companies specialize in Scandinavia and can help you arrange a private tour to explore your Finnish roots. They also have group tours that last four days or longer and visit such cities as Helsinki, Porvoo and Turku. If you are looking to discover your heritage, though, an independent or private tour is probably what you want. Nordic Saga Tours (nordicsaga.

Josef Neckermann, 79, one of Germany's best-known businessmen and a former Olympic champion horseman, died Sunday of lung cancer at his home in Goetzenhain near Frankfurt, Germany. He headed the German Sport Aid organization for more than two decades. Born in Wurzburg, he wanted to join the German cavalry but went into business because of the early death of his father. In 1935, he took over and managed Jewish retail businesses that had been confiscated by the Nazis. He worked for the Third Reich during World War II. In 1948, he opened a wholesale textile operation in Frankfurt that grew into one of Germany's largest mail-order businesses, which still bears his name.

BERLIN -- The extreme rightwing Republikaner Party scored impressive gains in the prosperous central state of Hesse yesterday, raising the profile of a group that had campaigned against the presence of refugees and asylum-seekers and dealing a setback to Germany's main parties.The Republikaners, who are led by Franz Schonhuber, a gray-haired former SS officer in wartime Nazi Germany, came from virtually nowhere to win 8.3 percent of the votes cast throughout the state's local elections, far more than most pollsters had predicted.

I'd like to travel from Venice, Italy, to Frankfurt, Germany, and then to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. How can I find a low-fare airline on the Internet? Two sites that have listings of low-fare airlines flying throughout Europe are Whichbudget.com and Attitude travel.com. Popular carriers include Ryanair, Flybe, easyJet and LTU - although they might not fly to your destinations. In fact, although we found a 50-euro fare on Ryanair from Venice to Frankfurt's Hahn Airport, we weren't able to locate a low-fare airline that flies from Frankfurt to Amsterdam.

FRANKFURT -- Daniel Cohn-Bendit appears in his office rumpled, tousled, unshaven and sniffling with a cold, not quite what you expect from a German public official, but OK for a post-revolutionary radical from the '60s.The generation of the '60s is in office everywhere, of course, notably in the White House. But it's still a bit surprising to find "Danny-the-Red" of 1968 ensconced as a deputy mayor in the financial and banking center of Germany.Mr. Cohn-Bendit is "Stadtrat" for multicultural affairs in Frankfurt, which means he's a kind of ombudsman for what is proportionately the biggest foreign population in any German city.

Upon hearing that a book called On Bull---- by a 75-year-old Princeton University professor of philosophy is on the best-seller list and generating all sorts of media buzz from heavy hitters like Today, 60 Minutes and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, one might be tempted to think: What kind of bull---- is this? But it's all true, which makes this book -- yes, the title is fully spelled out on the cover -- one of the truly quirky stories in publishing today. The tiny 67-page book by Harry G. Frankfurt, which offers a sober, academic examination of the subject, was No. 3 on The New York Times best-seller list for hardcover nonfiction last week.

Lee Silk does landscaping and drives a green Ford pickup with equipment thrown in the back and likes his hot dogs with mustard, nothing too elaborate. Lately, though, he's been stopping for lunch several times a week at Falls Road and West Lake Avenue, where there's this hot dog stand with ambition, a stand pressing the boundaries of the form. As Silk says, referring to the proprietor behind the grill, "He tries to talk me into the fancy stuff. " With some success, it seems, as Haute Dogs' owner, Daniel Raffel, recalled Silk's recent purchase of a dog made with Italian sausage prepared in a wine reduction.

FRANKFURT -- Germany's two major political parties sealed an agreement yesterday to govern the country together under Angela Merkel, who would become the country's first female chancellor. But after six weeks of grueling negotiations, which exposed fissures on both sides and necessitated deep compromises, the new government faced a murky future, shorn of the reformist zeal that many here believed is necessary to fix Germany's stagnant economy and stem its soaring unemployment. "This can become a coalition of new possibilities," Merkel said after the conclusion of talks between her Christian Democratic Union and the Social Democratic Party of the departing chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder.

Here is a pop quiz for bargain-hunters traveling in Europe. A pair of leather loafers from J.P. Tod's costs about 308,000 lire in Rome, 26,500 pesetas in Madrid and 400 marks in Frankfurt.Where are the shoes cheapest?The answer requires a calculator, a list of exchange rates and a lot of tenacity. But there is a big difference: At $176 in Rome, the shoes are about $50 cheaper than in Frankfurt.And that difference marks just one illustration of how the launch of a single European currency, the euro, should eventually have a big impact on travelers.

A MEMORABLE PLACE Keeping memories alive By Thomas Dorsett "Business or pleasure?" asked the official at the British passport control. I wanted to say "both," but answered, "pleasure." I hadn't been in England or Germany for years. I came to meet friends in London and Frankfurt and visit Berlin in between. First, I had to see some of my old haunts in London. I headed for Trafalgar Square. How good it was to again see the undersized dome of the National Gallery and the oversized column of Admiral Nelson's statue.

The London and Frankfurt stock exchanges recently announced that they plan to merge as well as form an alliance with the technology-heavy Nasdaq stock market of the United States. London and Frankfurt hope to build a pan-European trading heavyweight and a 24-hour global market in new-economy stocks - both unthinkable prospects only a few years ago. The British-German exchange, to be called iX, would be Europe's biggest by far and the world's fourth largest. It follows the announcement in March of a proposed merger of the Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam exchanges to form Euronext.
