A few weeks ago, I took an overnight trip to Frankfurt to attend a Thomas Dolby concert. The concert was excellent, but my train rides into and out of Frankfurt left me with plenty of time to do a quick exploration around the core of the city.
This is the main Frankfurt Bahnhof. It’s enormous inside.
I wandered into this shopping mall at one point while looking for somewhere to eat. I think this is where M.C. Escher would have shopped if he lived in Frankfurt.
Römerberg is the old center of Frankfurt. There’s a big square with a few restaurants and a variety of amazing old buildings.
Another building in Römerberg.
I can see how he does it, but this guy at Römerberg did warrant a double-take and a closer look.
There is an observation deck from the Main Tower where you can get a pretty fantastic view of the surrounding city, including the Bahnhof below.
Another, shorter observation deck can be found along the Zeil, a major shopping street. This one is attached to a Galeria Kaufhof, with a great rooftop dining experience.
