The sun shines through trees and a blanket of fog in the Taunus mountains near Konigstein, just northwest of Frankfurt.
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.

Frankfurt’s christmas market is open again and running until Dec.22. It is one of the largest Christmas markets in all of Germany and considered one of the most beautiful. It draws some 3 million visitors every year. Especially on weekends I’d rather avoid it.

Dogs visit Frankfurt’s new old town. It took years of construction to more or less rebuild the ancient heart of the city between Römer City Hall and the Cathedral that was destroyed in WWII. Although not completely finished yet, it is now open for the public (and dogs). The shops and cafes still have to move in. In September there will be a huge 3 day celebration to welcome the old town into the city.
