Not much to see in Frankfurt. One place where you can shoot some fantastic photos is the Main River. Especially while standing in of its bridges.

The walk along the Main river is adored not only by visitors, but also by the locals. It is very relaxing, and offers a great view to both sides of the city and the impressive skyline.

The Mainkai is in my opinion one of the best parts of the city to have a look at ´Mainhattan‘, enjoy a sunny Sunday with a pleasant walk and relax a bit on the grass.
