very nice pics of my hometown.
i think frankfurt is becoming better and better each year.
just a little description about the name: frankfurt is located at the river "main"
so it is often called "mainhattan"
another famous name is "big äppel" like the famous name "big apple" for nyc.
"äppel" is the name for the so called "äppelwein" - the famous frankfurt cider

Frankfurt does a great job blending old and new styles in a rather delightful way!

Great pics!

I agree. Frankfurt is a lot like London in that it manages to carry off the blending of old and new to a good standard overall.

These are great photos and complement your Stuttgart thread nicely. I'm glad to see you got a couple of photos from the new shopping centre!

Thanks guys for comments. I myself like Frankfurt pretty much. It´s certainly one of the most unique cities in Germany.

I see no connection to Manhattan. if anything it looks like another midsized US city as oppose to a big city like NY or Chicago.

#1. It's meant to be an ironic name. Frankfurt has one of the largest concentrations of skyscrapers in Europe and is situated on the river Main - hence the nickname Mainhatten. It's not meant to be a reflection of the number of skyscrapers.

#2. It looks nothing like any US city I've ever seen.
