GERMANY: cities, towns, landscapes and roads

A quick 5 day tour around some Western areas of Germany shown in the map:

image hosted on flickr


It's hard to tell it. It has to be experienced: great cities, even greater natural landscapes, unmatched (and I really mean it) public transport and Autobahns with crazy speeds. That's Germany I was enjoying for those short 5 days.

Cities and places that I have visited:

- Frankfurt
- Wiesbaden
- Düsseldorf
- Köln
- Koblenz
- Trier
- Zollverein
- Rhein Valley
- Nürburgring
- Various Autobahns and rural roads

So let's begin...

Frankfurt



I was in Frankfurt in 2006 in Winter. It was ok back then but I must say it's much nicer in Summer.

Zeil, the main shopping street. Loads of pedestrian space, underground parkings, fantastic public transport... I guess this is not something uncommon in virtually any city in Germany. Anyway, a great shopping street which is not a hassle but a pleasure to explore

MyZeil, part of the 1bn EUR PalaisQuartier designed by Massimiliano Fuksas. I must admit MyZeil must be the most impressive shopping mall I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few from London to Singapore and Bangkok)

It's got similarities but it is most definitely not "very" similar.
