Frankfurt - Wolkenkratzer Festival 2007



Yesterday I got back from the Wolkenkratzer Festival in Frankfurt. There are already an bunch of other threads from the festival here at the forum, but sicne we don't have one here at S&B I'll give you mine.

The Wolkenkratzer Festival (Skyscraper Festival) is 2 days where Frankfurt celebrates itself and it's skyscrapers. 15 Skyscrapers were open to the public, and I attented a bunch of them.

Unfortunately the weather was not very good, and there was only a few hours of sun. Not that much rain either though, thank good. But Frankfurt is always nice, no matter what weather there is, and I also enjoyed this trip very much, like I have done every time I've been there. Also met up with both other forumers and some of the old friends from Emporis (when I used to be there too).

I'll start off with a evening view from my hotel room, and the rest is just one big mix of different places and subjects. I'm really too tired to describe every photo right now, and also to prepare more photos. There might come more later though. Let's get starteed:











































Cheers

Cool pics. A lot of blue skies, although I didn't see those most of the time.

Guess who's taking a pic here from Main Plaza

Wow, great pictures, especially the first and the last one! Frankfurt surely remains the skyscraper capital in Europe (IMHO).

@ Michiel: Oh yes who can that be. Good caught. I also wonder who these people at the bridge are.

Most of the blue sky photos were taken sunday, actually shortly after you left. Unfortunately also after all the towers were closed.

I've unfortunatly never had the pleasure of visiting it - only passed by on the freeway ( nice Skyline view - but pre the digital cam age for me )..

Thanks all.

Just a few more night shots, it's getting really late. All 3 from my hotel room, which was quite far from the action on these. The 2 fireworks shots are from the 2. night of fireworks, and I'm glad I stayed in, since it really started to rain a lot. Not possible to get super good shots from there, but I guess they'll go for now:






I'll add a new bunch tomorrow, if I have the time...
