At a Soccer Match

Supporters of Eintracht Frankfurt, the city’s first division soccer team, after letting off red flares during the match against 1. FC Cologne, Oct. 4. Frankfurt won 3-2. Of course, pyrotechnics are illegal in soccer stadiums but somehow they are brought in anyway.


Onlookers stand on the Holbeinsteg, a pedestrian bridge over river Main to watch the fireworks that concluded the three-day ‘Museumsuferfest’ (Museum Embankment Festival) in Frankfurt, Aug.31. Some 2.6 million visitors flocked to the river banks for one of Germany’s most colorful open-air festivals.
