Offenbach is a city that is bordering Frankfurt to the east and could be considered a suburb of Frankfurt am Main. The city is a bit grey and stiff and the
city has many problems with crime and segregation. The nicest parts are the areas with private residences in the outskirts. Offenbach used to be the center
of leather industry, but it has declined recently. I visited Offenbach as part of my Frankfurt visit, I didn't know anything about the city and just wanted to
see how it looked like after a day of sighseeing in its big brother Frankfurt. Since much of the city has been bombed during WW2, there are very few
beautiful old buildings left, but Offenbach has a collection of 4 highrises taller then 60m, right in the city center. That is unusual in German cities of that size.

Population: 118 000 (part of metro Frankfurt-Rhine/Main)
Year: 2010 (April)
State: Hesse
Tallest building: City Tower (120m)

Offenbach am Main - Nightsky’s trip to central Germany


This nice area was the first I saw of Offenbach, after getting off the tram at the city limit. Then I took a bus to the city center.


City Tower. At 120m the tallest building in the city since 2003 stands right in downtown Offenbach. It has 35 floors.






Haus der Wirtschaft 1 and 2. 14-16-storey glass towers from 2001, also situated on Marktplatz.




The city center has a lot of pedestrian streets, but no really nice ones.








Rush hour traffic in front of a church in Offenbach.
