Skyscrapers look good even between historical buildings.
BTW, did Frankfurt reach 1 million yet? It looks like a big city.

Frankfurt has about 2.3million in it's direct urban area and approx 5million in it's metropolitan area which is called the Rhein Main. Year, it's a reasonably sized city.

A very interesting city. It gets better with the sun like all the cities...Thanks for the pictures.

Frankfurt always looks so much bigger and impressive, than it actually is.

What do you mean? Frankfurts metro area is around 4 million and the urban area close to 2 million. Thats pretty much what you expect.

Political boundaries are quite arbitrary and therefore meaningless. Just keep in mind that cities like San Franciso have officially only 800,000 inhabitants and Sydney less than 50,000. What counts is the mtro area and the common economic zone.

Totally correct goschio, though Sydney amalgamated with South Sydney a few years ago now, so it officially has 175,000 in the city proper. But that is further evidence that city proper populations mean little. Sydney didn't suddenly feel three times bigger after the amalgamation.

It's great to see Frankfurt in winter, allthough also I would prefer another season to visit this city. Frankfurt doesn't have much of a cosy city center, allthough there are some fine 19th-century neighbourhoods. But of course you can always visit the city for one of its many museums or a perfect shopping experience.
Nevertheless, summer seems better for a stroll along the green river banks, meanwhile admiring the great skyline.

Glad youve made a decision, all German cities have a different vibe and Frankfurt is a great place, but it certainly isnt the prettiest.
