I like these photos of Frankfurt. Street level shots are always my favourite. Great city!

Wiesbaden

Continuing with the photos


Wiesbaden



Wiesbaden - a very beautiful city near Frankfurt with population of about 277 000. It's not the best known of German cities but surely is one of the prettiest.

Unfortunately I only had a couple of hours after a busy day in Frankfurt. Still it gives at least a clue what this city is all about. Trust me, it's only a tiny part what's in these few photos which were taken on a rush.

Wiesbaden is indeed very beautiful. IMO, Frankfurt has the nicest and most interesting metro area in Germany. So many beautiful towns and cities around.

True. There is Heidelberg that comes to my mind first, another pretty place... I had thoughts of going there back in 2006 when I was in FFM but didn't make it to this day.

Germany cities are generally clean and beautiful.
I'd been to some of them and I like them.

Köln / Cologne

Continuing...

Köln / Cologne




I was lucky enough to get to visit Cologne twice during my trip. This is the first part of it. Cologne left a great impression to me. It's a vibrant, modern, youthful and sophisticated city. A place where anyone should be more than happy to live.

Kranhaus. An amazing riverfront development. The project received a MIPIM award as the best office building in 2009. It is made up of 3 identical buildings with "hanging" ceiling. Just so sexy and instantly attracting attention

I was wondering why there were so many rainbow flags all around the city... later I got to realise that there were the Gay Games VIII taking place

The 157m tall Kölner Dom. It is the world's second tallest church (the first one being in Ulm, Germany) and a UNESCO World Heritage Site... the feeling I experienced standing next to it was rather similar to the feeling I had standing next to Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. The height, the size an the scale are just absolutely mindblowing
