The city of Philadelphia, with 1.6 million inhabitants, is the largest metropolis in the state of Pennsylvania, located on the east coast of the USA on the Delaware River. Tourists from all over the world visit Philadelphia because of the many sights that have been created during more than four eventful centuries. German immigrants played a major role in the construction of the city, which is why Germantown in the northwest of the city is one of the oldest districts. You can reach Philadelphia directly from a German airport and land at the International Airport , a few kilometers outside the city center.
