Tuesday/ more Frankfurt

This is Wednesday morning and I am in the lounge at Frankfurt airport.    The pictures show the highlights of my day, all done with the U-bahn.   I stayed at the Marriott Courtyard in Nordwestzentrum (pink line at top of map).    The center of Frankfurt is at Hauptwache station (second stop to the right from the main station Haupt Bahnhof).    The Hauptwache is one of the most famous plazas in the city.   That’s where I found the church (I forgot its name!).  Check out the red velotaxi in front of it – a pedal bike with a seat for a passenger to be pedaled somewhere close by.    The spectacular glass and steel building with curved surfaces inside and out is there as well, next to the Kaufhof (department store).    Look for me in the red shirt !  on the overhead picture as well as taking a picture of the curry wurst with thick pommes* smiley face.  *Very popular/ most popular fast food snack in Germany.     Then I went to check out the main station.   Atlas on the roof is carrying the world on his shoulders.    The final few pictures are all from around Römerberg the plaza with the Rathaus (city hall) .. there is some very beautiful detail on some of the doors and walls and windows to be seen.
