Day 56: Finals in Frankfurt

This was our final sightseeing day, tomorrow we return our car and fly back home.  We are in Frankfurt, a large German city that is known also as “Bankfurt” (it is the banking centre of Germany, and indeed the EU), and “Mainhatten” (as it is full of skyscrapers like Manhatten, but is on the river Main).  We are here on Saturday, which in a way is a bit of a shame, as the bankers are all at home (or wherever banker go).  So the banking district was very quiet.

However, one of the bank towers does have a public observation deck about 650′ above the city, so we took a trip up there to the 55th floor.  The view was great.

We did some more walking about in Frankfurt, but in the end we were all a little tired, and after our final ice cream we headed back to the hotel.

Then, leaving Sara to some well-earned peace and quiet I took the boys to their final water play time, at a nearby park that we had visited the first day we had arrived in Frankfurt 56 days ago.  Some fun in the sun, and a bit of mini golf in a really nice kids park.

 

We fly home tomorrow.  See you all soon.  Photos from today are here.

    Wow! What a trip!
    Now don’t do it again unless you take me with you!
    Your absence was way too hard on me! I can only take so much you know!
