Frankfurt is located on both sides of the Main river south-east of the Taunus mountain range. It is the fifth largest City in Germany, a eclectic mix of new and old architecture, landscaped City squares and public sculpture. Quirky vintage shops scattered over the City centre mixed up with lifestyle, comic/Manga shops and covered markets, selling everything from Bratwurst with curry sauce and Apfelwein. London City Airport run a daily service to Frankfurt – a great weekend escape.
Five bridges cross the river Main in the centre of Frankfurt – adorned by locks with love and luck messages.
Colekt – Full of quirky gifts from false eyelashes, toys, jewellery, prints, combs, lamps and a beautiful coffee and tea bar.
Shops selling – yes – just gnomes.
Finally, Batman on the streets of Frankfurt protecting its inhabitants….
