Weekend Wandering of Frankfurt’s Europaviertel (European Quarter)


A walk around Frankfurt’s European Quarter or “Europaviertel”, a new housing and business quarter on the site of the city’s former central freight station. Its somewhat dull architecture has been disputed, though.

 

All photos taken with a Sony A7r III and various lenses, converted to black&white in Adobe Camera Raw.

Cologne Wandering


Walked through Cologne today (Feb.23), Germany’s fourth largest and one the oldest cities in the country. The cathedral ( ‘Dom’) is its  most famous monument. Construction began in 1248 and was only completed in 1880.
