The Linen House, where linen and textiles were traded. It is over 600 years old.
This courtyard, the Hainer Hof, has been rebuilt beyond all recognition.
The Eiserner Steg. An iron bridge spanning the Main that was built in 1868. It too was destroyed during the war and rebuilt afterwards. Thousands of lovers locks are affixed to the railings. In the background can be seen Frankfurt's enormous cathedral.
Traders have set up stalls in the shadow of the cathedral, part of the Christmas Market, an ancient tradition in Frankfurt.
The Saalgasse. You can see the buildings in the background show an interesting fusion of modern and medieval German architectural styles, an attempt to recapture the street's former atmosphere. At the top of both photos you can just make out the cathedral's steeple.
A view back towards the Loehergasse.
Crowds gather on the riverside to watch the Frankfurt cathedral burn down. It was rebuilt afterwards evidently.
The Alte Oper (old opera house) is bounded by scaffolding as construction of this Frankfurt landmark nears completion.
