The Friday Photo #140 – Colour and cobbles in Frankfurt

After several months in Asia and a few weeks in the US, returning to Europe was a bit of a culture shock.  Even though Frankfurt isn’t usually renowned for the beauty of its architecture or strong arts scene, I actually quite liked the large German city.

The old city had several cobbled lanes and squares, full of statues and lined by dozens of colourful buildings.  Bars were doing a brisk trade in the fleeting sunshine, locals and tourists alike enjoying a wide variety of German lagers everywhere you looked.

While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend spending several weeks, there are definitely a lot worse places to find yourself for a few days.

  • Cool buildings, like they have a lego facade!

  • I visited Frankfurt for the first time about 17 years ago and rather enjoyed it, even though it’s a very modern city. No doubt helped to have a local showing us around. I remember vividly the apple wine. Good stuff. Don’t recall much of the old town, so I guess a return trip is in order 🙂
    Thanks for the inspiration!
