It was a little bit grey yesterday ...
This is the Rathaus (town hall and registry office)
And it rained a little...
But we had a lovely walk round Frankfurt drinking in the atmosphere - not a strip mall in sight!!
The cathedral has finally shed all the scaffolding on the tower ... don't think we saw the tower once in the 3.5 years we lived here last time!
This is one of the gates to the old city, the Eschersheimer Tor
And this is a building we had never seen before - it was behind hoardings for all the time we lived here last - it's the Thurn und Taxis Palace. Behind it is a new shopping centre / office complex which was still little more than a hole in the ground when we left in 2008!
Frankfurt is a nice mix of old and modern; albeit the old is sometimes relatively new (1980's) reconstruction as the Allies bombed the city extensively in WWII.
