    Favorite thing: Frankfurt's old opera house was destroyed during the Second World War, but underwent a complete reconstruction that returned the exterior it to its Wilhelmine (late 19th century) glory.

    Berlin Architect Richard Lucae had based his plans upon the famous Dresden Opera. The surrounding streets include some of Frankfurt's most elegant boutiques and cafes.

    Favorite thing: See the Alte Oper - Frankfurt's Opera House
    This is a beautiful building that is well proportioned and looks good at any angle. It has an impressive facade with a beautiful fountain in front. See the pix, don't you agree?

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Frankfurt is the people who were unexpectedly friendly and helpful to the two blur queens (friend and me) trying to get to places around town. Despite trying our darnest to look cool and knowledgeable (you know the #1 advice always given to female travellers - 'Do not look blur'?), we still emit the hopelessly clueless expression on our faces. We met wonderful people who told us to visit ROMER, the old part of Frankfurt, helped us to buy the train tickets, point us to which train to take and told us a bit of the history of Frankfurt. The care and concern given to us by friendly strangers were really heart-warming and unforgettable!!
