Worms. Another ancient cathedral city in Germany and another wonderful and massive Romanesque cathedral! Just 1.5hrs from Frankfurt I found Worms to be a little depressing compared to Speyer as it was severly damaged in WW2 and it seems to have been rebuilt in that horrid plain concrete style that blights so many cities in Europe. So the cathedral was the only real highlight of this trip

thanks, it's a very pleasant place to live but also ideal for a long weekend trip and easy to get to from most airports

So a few more sweep panorama's from Frankfurt which is the ideal city for this type of photo due to its impressive skyline

Offenbach Am Main is a small city right next door to Frankfurt, it is a pleasant 1.5 hour stroll along the river Main from Frankfurt and has some interesting buildings and skyscrapers. Although massivily bombed in WW2 the city still retains a few historical gems

Büsing Palace courtyard. One thing Ive noticed alot in Germany is that there are often car parks in places where I wish there wasn't

So glad that summer is coming as it means I can start exploring Germany again!

Gelnhausen, a small town about 30 mins by train from Frankfurt. Nestled in the hills the town has a stunning old town with many notable buildings. It also has two of the most picturesque urban squares but sadly both are used as car-parks which is a real shame!

Untermarkt, one of the picturesque squares, this one is surrounded by many wonderful timer framed buildings like this

The town is surrounded by an old defensive wall that also provides a good vantage point to look over the historic skyline

One of many pretty streets, this is one of the few not blighted by cars everywhere

St. Mary Church (Marienkirche), an interesting mix of romanesque and gothic

Büdingen is a small walled town near to Frankfurt. It has a rather wonderful old town full of timber framed houses as well as a stunning medieval stronghold. A very pleasant place to be for sure!

Schloss Philippsruhe is a magnificent palace on the outskirts of Hanau which is one of the many large cities on the fringes of Frankfurt and about 1/2 hour away from Frankfurt city center

One of the many interesting rooms inside, this place is just $2.50 to get inside. $2.50 is insanely cheap compared to many of the other palaces I have visited
