Photographer's Note

Mainhattan

At the end of last summer’s trip we spent to rather cloudy and sometimes rainy days in the city of Frankfurt am Main. This photo shows the central business district in the city, called Mainhattan, a combination of Manhattan, a reference to the many high rises, and Main, the river on which Frankfurt lies. It is one of the major financial centres in Europe and home to the European Central Bank. Two of the tallest towers in this photo are the Main Tower (200 m, the round blue one with the antenna at right) and the Commerzbank Tower (258 m, the largest one in the middle). The building in the middle is called the Hauptwache (Main Guardroom), a baroque building from 1730.

Frankfurt am Main (the last bit is added to distinguish the city from Frankfurt an der Oder on the German-Polish border) is the fifth-most populous city in Germany (just over 760,000 inhabitants) and the largest in the state of Hesse.
