Exploring Frankfurt Pt. 3

On Saturday, the coolest day this week, we decided to take a 100min boat cruise along the Main. As we walked down Berger Str. we stopped to look at the weekend market (every Wednesday and Saturday – but Saturday has more vendors). The market is called the Bornheimer Wochenmarkt.

After looking around to see what they had we headed down to the river via a different route. Coming out at the Frankfurt Cathedral (on DomstraBe) we went inside to take a look. It was very different to the churches I visited in Mexico. All the churches I remember seeing while living in Mexico were usually very decorated and ornate. This church, in the gothic theme, was simple and understated; although the organ was AMAZING!

We went with the tour company Primus Linie Frankfurter Personenschiffahrt. Below are some pictures from the boat trip up and down the Main. 

After the boat cruise we walked into the Financial District and then up through the city along a park walk. Something i love about Frankfurt is the amount of parks there are. It was wonderful to walk through the city but be surrounded by nature. We came out by the Opernplatz and continued walked to the Eschenheimer Turm. We then headed up Oder Weg toward my school. After finding my school we walked to the nearby park and then back towards home. We stopped for an early dinner of schnitzel along the way. 

It has been a busy first week, exploring all there is. Yesterday it rained for most of the day so I am sure the city is looking a lot greener then it has the last few days.

Keep checking back for updates. A lot is happening in the next few weeks 🙂
