The Main Tower in Frankfurt am Main, Germany was opened in January 2000 and with a height of 200 meters, it is the fourth highest building in Germany. In the core of the impressive facade of glass you find the 26 fastest elevators in the country, which transport people and goods with a speed of 25.2 km/h.
When I suddenly unexpectedly and unplanned stood in front of the big Euro sign at the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, I had a bit of goose bumps. Since I studied economy, I know that you can complain much about the common currency, but I don’t want to discuss this here.
Once at Heron Quays station, the illuminated colorful bridge immediately caught our attention. My wide angle lens did not decline the challenge. We just had to wait for the right color since – according to the female advice – pink is the best choice for the photo.
The Commerzbank Tower, built in 1997, was for a few years the highest skyscraper in all Europe and until 2012 the highest of the European Union. With its 257m height (300m including the antenna) and with the strong yellow illumination, the tower is not to oversee all day and night. As I was lucky enough to stand on the Main Tower right next to the office of the Commerzbank, I could capture the tower together with the old town of Frankfurt – even though the old town down there seems so tiny little.
