    Frankfurt bei Nacht
    Frankfurt by night
    We start in the far east with the Osthafenbrücke, which actually consists of two bridges together with the Honsellbrücke and offers a very compact (and beautiful) view of the high-rise buildings including the ECB. It connects Frankfurt's Ostend north of the Main at Osthafen with Gerbermühlstraße in Sachsenhausen and was completed in 2013. Since then, it has been both a popular photo motif itself and a popular photo spot with a skyline view. Continue on the Sachsenhausen side in the direction of The Deutschherrnbrücke is a double-track railroad bridge with a footbridge over the Main. It was built between 1911 and 1913 at 36.900 km on the Main as a link between the then new Ostbahnhof station on the Frankfurt-Hanau railroad line and the Südbahnhof station. Today it is a popular crossing for walkers and joggers. But that's not all. From here you can enjoy a fantastic view of the skyline and the River Main, which is particularly impressive at sunset and in the dark. As we continue along the Deutschherrnufer, the skyline is always beautifully illuminated in front of us. We actually 'only' wanted to show the most beautiful bridge views here, but we can't withhold the view from the riverbank. The next photo spot is the raft bridge - and it's really popular in the photo community. Evening after evening, you can see photo enthusiasts snapping the most beautiful and dramatic skyline pictures at sunset. The sun may have already set, but the panorama is still fantastic. At 221 meters, the Flößerbrücke connects the Obermainanlage in the city centre with the Deutschherrnufer in Sachsenhausen. Its trademark is visible even from a distance: a 21.50 meter high green arch spans the Zügelgurtbrücke. Because of its asymmetry - it crosses the Main at an angle of around 70 degrees to the river - the bridge is also known locally as "das scheppe Ding". (Source frankfurt.de) The Ignatz Bubis Bridge is not far from here. The former Obermain Bridge now relieves the Old Bridge as an important link between the city center and Sachsenhausen. Since December 2000, it has been named after Ignatz Bubis, chairman of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, who died in 1999. The bridge was built between 1876 and 1878 and, together with the Friedensbrücke, is the only bridge with a streetcar track. The view from here is also impressive! As the pedestrian path is not that wide, we only stop for a photo and continue on our way! We reach the Old Bridge just a few minutes later. It was first mentioned in a document on May 10, 1235, making it the oldest bridge over the Main in Frankfurt. It represents an important milestone in the development of the city. For centuries, the Old Bridge was the only connection between the two banks of Frankfurt and one of the most important transportation routes beyond the city limits. Originally, the Old Bridge was a wooden structure. It was not until the beginning of the 15th century that pictorial representations of the structure in stone were found (source frankfurt.de). The skyline no longer looks quite as compact from here as it did from the previous bridges to the east. Nevertheless, it is no less fascinating as we get closer and closer to it. The Iron Footbridge that now follows is one of the most popular photo spots in Frankfurt with a view of the Frankfurt skyline. The pedestrian bridge made of steel and concrete, which is crossed by around 10,000 people every day, connects the city center around the Römerberg with Sachsenhausen on the other side of the Main. The footbridge was built in 1869 as a neo-Gothic half-timbered structure by Peter Schmick, but has been modified several times, most recently in 1993. With its countless love locks, it is certainly one of the most romantic places in Frankfurt and is simply beautiful in the dark. The Untermainbrücke connects Neue Mainzer Straße in the city center with Schweizer Straße in Sachsenhausen. It was built between 1872 and 1874 by Peter Schmick. Today, it is one of the busiest north-south axes and offers a fascinating view of the city's financial center when you cross it. For us, the most urban bridge in Frankfurt! On the way across the Museumsufer to the Holbeinsteg, we catch another view that we don't want to withhold. The beautifully curved Holbeinsteg is a real eye-catcher in the silhouette of the banks of the Main. The suspension bridge has connected the city center with the Sachsenhausen Museumsufer since 1990 and heads directly towards Frankfurt's Städelmseum on the south side. Coming from the south side, it is an even bigger eye-catcher right now during the lockdown: the Intercontinental Hotel shows its heart. Lights in the hotel rooms have been switched on so that a huge red heart appears on the façade. A real goosebump moment - and we are really looking forward to the city hopefully coming back to life soon and the windows on the façade being lit up again by guests. We have almost reached our last bridge today. It is the Friedensbrücke, which connects Baseler Platz in the Gutleut district with Stresemannallee in Sachsenhausen. We enjoy the view west of the skyline from here and are pleased that we were able to experience such a colorful evening walk. Oh, Frankfurt: you and your skyline - we can't get enough of you!
