I don't want to tell you all that much about Frankfurt and I'll explain the title of this entry in the next one, I just want to show you these pictures so that you'll know, next time you have a layover in FRA, make good use of it and go into town!
Hauptwache, I was told, is the best place to get off the train. I can't tell you if it's the best - I only got off the train once, after all - but it does put you right in the middle of things.
Random pretty things I stumbled across (sometimes quite literally) as I walked around the area towards the Main river.
Three views of the dome.
Details on walls. You find those everywhere. Make it into a treasure hunt!
Downtown - Romans, churches and sausages.
The iron footbridge, one of the maaaany ways to cross the Main.
You can definitely spend a good time here and I would have, if I hadn't changed my plans spontaneously. Have a coffee, have some ice cream or lunch, go for more walks, stroll into a museum, criss-cross the river, explore a port, see if you can get to the top of any of the many skyscrapers,... the possibilities certainly are vast. I don't know that I'd go to Frankfurt, just like that, but there were tourists - and lots of them. And it's, without a doubt, a cool place to hang out, even if it's just for a few hours.
Six hours very well spent.
