Germany: Frankfurt on the Main

Yesterday I got two postcards from Germany. One of them comes from Frankfurt on the Main. Frankfurt is the largest city in Hesse and the fifth largest city in Germany. Frankfurt is the seat of the European Central Bank and thus one of the four "capitals" of the European Union. It is a traffic junction, the train station is also junction and the airport belongs to "World's busiest airports by passenger traffic". Frankfurt is also important financial centre.
The card shows the skyline of Frankfurt. The office buildings belong to the highest in Europe. Therefore the city is sometimes called "Mainhattan".

With sweet children's book stamp:

Thank You very much Svea!
