Frankfurt am Main, October 2012

I was in Frankfurt for the first time and i really liked it. Not only because of the skyscrapers but also because of the international mix of people and the good shopping experience. Frankfurt feels a lot bigger than you would expect from a city with around 690000 citizens and there are also alot of old buildings left.

Unfortunately my camera was broken on the first day so i had to use the cam on my phone so the quality is not the best.

Our hotel


Central Station




Walking to the city centre


The area around the central station has still alot of old buildings








Getting closer to the skyscrapers








Reaching the observationdeck at the Maintower






Old part of the city with the "Römer"




More to come

Really nice photos! I'm looking forward to see more!



I hope so much that one day they will reconstruct the roofs and windows of those amazing buildings opposite the central station:
