Day 58 in Germany: Excursion to Frankfurt
On Tuesday we had an excursion to Frankfurt and our small Berlin-group went straight from Berlin to Frankfurt.
Frankfurt is a real business city! You can see businessmen and businesswomen and skyscrapers everywhere. The city is called to be "the smallest metropolis in the world".
During the excursion we visited the stock exchange ("Wertpapierbörse"), St. Paul's Church which offered itself as the meeting place for the first all-German Parliament, and then.. Then we visited the Main Tower. We went up there, to the roof of 54 floors and 199,5 meters high tower. 53 floors in the elevator was quite fine by me, but to reach the last floor we had to take the stairs and the walls were made of glass.. It took some 10 to 15 minutes for me to get up the steps but I MADE IT!! :)
