Four days in Frankfurt am Main (and little bit in Köln)

Some pictures from my travel to Frankfurt am Main and Köln (Cologne) - Germany

View from my room - a huge tree I fallen in love with from the first sight! We are not used to see such tall trees here...

Beautiful light installations Winterlichter  at Palmengarten





I talked to the trees





Snowdrops - Schneeglöckchen

There are a lot of green spots in between of skyscapers. Trees are tall and beautiful. 





I love how german people struggle to spend quality time outdoor. Blankets for everybody on cafes terraces!  Love it!

Frankfur downtown was almost completely ruined during the second world war. These traditional houses were re-built and are considered like something artificial by my friend.

Zum Gemalten Haus - a traditional German tavern. People share tables, speak loud, heartwarming atmosphere. Apple wine.

My friend took me to Jazzkeller - a jazz pub in the center of the city. Beautiful evening with Jesse Davis quintet and Natalie John

book I read during my travel. easy to read and fun.

Book shelves on the streets! Leave a book you don't need anymore and take a book of your interest. Loved this much!
There are really a lot of flower shops in Frankfurt! And I loved this old fashioned facade.



Frankfurt metro - just something about transport, like in most european metros I've been. I'll always compare european metros with pompous Moscow metro.
Bridge that unites 2 part of the city Sachsenhausen and Frankfurt.

Art installation about Brothers Grimm tales.  You could listen for tales in German. As I don't speak German that much, i was starring at amazing sculptures by Shaun Tan. At Angewandtekunst museum. If I translate correctly: Handicrafts museum.

Another installation  - My dad's arms are a big boat. My friend read and translated the book for me. It was a touching story and beautifully made illustrations.
Everybody needs a big boat sometimes...


Oak leaves at Palmengarten.

I picked these leathes and brought them home to Majorca. Later on I was using them in my first silversmith sawing project.

Palmengarten. Huge trees..breathtaking...

j
Air plant in Palmengarten botanical garden. I thought I'll finally see  the snow and a real winter. Nothing about that,...  I found myself in moist and hot tropics.


A lady who came to knit in the botanical garden. Love the colors she has choosen...


I was treated too good :)
Arriving to Cologne by train. I stumbled upon the cathedral already inside the train station. I just shouted: Wow!

Kölnerdom. Cologne cathedral. Very imposing and beautiful from outside.

I visited Roemisch-Germanisches museum in Cologne by my friend's suggestion.
I found an absolutely crazy collection of pre-historic and roman times pottery and jewelry. So very inspiring!
The End
