Frankfurt am Main again As the weather is still too bad for day trips to other places and the snow has gone ive been concentrating on night time shots. Here are some from one of the nicest public spaces in Frankfurt the Opernplatz

Very nice photos! I visisted Frankfurt some years ago, a fascinating "mini metropolis". Made daytrips to Mainz, Heidelberg, Wiesbaden and Darmstadt.

Speaking of day trips now that the weather has started to improve a little I thought it was time to go out of Frankfurt again

Darmstadt is a small city just 20mins south of Frankfurt. Although mostly destroyed in WW2 it still contains a number of interesting old and new buildings

thanks for the kind comments. The weather is still quite bleak at the moment so it's back to nigth time shots of Frankfurt for now

Looking up at Fosters stunning futuristic looking Commerzbank Tower. The more I see this building the more it's becoming my favorite thing in Frankfurt and probably my fave skyscraper anywhere. It just looks stunning from almost any angle!

Another shot with the Eurotower in the foreground, this skyscraper is much simpler and smaller than the Commerzbank Tower and from certain angles it looks pretty cool

Last weekend the weather was good so I decided to visit Speyer which is somewhere ive wanted to go for a long time mostly because it has a whopping big Romanesque cathedral. I was pleasantly suprised by how nice the rest of the city is as well, a real gem imo and one of the few lucky German cities to be mostly spared the devastation of WW2.

Well of course I will start with Speyers awe inspiring cathedral. Im really interested in Romanesque architecture at the moment so visiting this UNESCO world heritage site was a real high point of my time in Germany so far

The mighty nave with it's huge round arches

Side shot in the nave. Each main bay is made up of two smaller archers which give the nave a distinct feeling

And underneath all that is the crypt, which according to wiki is the largest Romanesque columned hall crypt in Europe.

The exterior is also most impressive although slightly blighted by scaffolding

The cathedral sits at the end of a really long and pleasant street

Speyer has more to it than just a cathedral. It has a wonderful old town with many fine churches and historical buildings in it. Here are a few highlights for me

Evangelic Church is one of the oldest and one of the most complete classical churches of its age in Germany with a wonderful wood fitted interior

On the outskirts of the city center is the massive neogothic protestant church known as the Gedächtniskirche (sometimes German words sound like a sneeze!).

Not to be outdone by the Protestants, the Catholics of Speyer built the huge St Joseph church just across the road in response. It's also neogothic in style but a slightly different style of neogothic of course!

I have a subliminal awareness of the splendour of Speyer, already in place; although I'm not sure from where. Probably from SSC!
