Sometimes a must-see for work reasons can become a good impromptu occasion to meet other corners of this planet. Frankfurt, the heart of Europe, is not a destination we would have gone to in another situation but it has been a perfect starting point to reach an idyllic town that is already in our retinas, Heidelberg.

Several days have passed since our arrival, and this time it is much simpler, than on other longer trips, to break down ourgetaway to Frankfurt and Heidelberg 2012 in the usual "THE DAY AFTER" ...

THANKS:

Our most special thanks to Elias Badenes (our old friend and "crazy computer scientist" -with love- of Castellon) and Ivan (our graphic designer and his great drawings) without whom this blog would never be possible. Special thanks to all who have written and those who have advised us (Miriam, Mª Mercé, Ramón, ...) as well as all those who are there even if they have not written. Also to more than 500 Twitter followers and the more than 400 of Facebook

!! UP TO THE NEXT TRIP !!


Paula and Isaac

WE DIDN'T LIKE:

- The dirt from certain areas of Frankfurt and Heidelberg.
- He German languageIt's horrible and it sounds fatal.
- Germany, look where you look, it's still a unattainable destination for our pockets.
- The amount of Chinese business They eat the rest in both Frankfurt and Heidelberg. We have nothing against them, but the taste in decoration and the commitment to the premises has nothing to do.
- The crowd of homeless and poor that we have found in the streets of Frankfurt, something we did not expect from the leading country in Europe. The crisis affects everyone.
- He Intercity Hotel, a perfect place to stay by location (if not the best), has left us with a horrible pose for their lousy service and negligence (which has not affected us too much but they are not worth what they paid).

PICHÍ-PICHÁ:

- The Bockerheimer gardens, even his Nebbien Arbor, did not give us much. A dispensable ride.
- He Hauptwache, the commercial area and everything around it, does not differ much from what we can find anywhere else.
- Although we ate excellently, accustomed to the pecking streets of Spain, the Frankfurt Fressgrass We found something "bland."
- The German food, the sausages, the knuckle, the pork dishes, the soups are excellent but we believe that we would not endure a week with this diet (possibly only facing the public).
- He Eiserner Steg or Iron Bridge from Frankfurt, without more.

WE LOVED IT:

- He complex of pavilions of Fairs of Messe in Frankfurt, as well as the third largest skyscraper in adjacent Europe, the Messeturm, they are really impressive.
- The Financial District of Frankfurt, its skyscrapers, the Eurotower, the Main Tower and the second largest skyscraper in Europe, the Commerzbank Tower, present the Frankfurt more modern and recommended.
- The Opera Square from Frankfurt at night illuminated, worth observing.
- The Zeil Galerie and one of the best views of the Sky Line from the city.
- The old area of ​​Frankfurt, the Cathedral, the Rommer, the Paulskirche and the last vestiges of history in the city.
- The lively Sachsenhausen areaEven if we weren't at night, I had a pint to drink a good German cider.
- even if I don't paint much here, the Japanese restaurant next to the Opera Square, Excellent. !!We love them!!
- He Frankfurt public service (trams, buses, taxis, U-Bahn, S-Bahn) and regional and long distance (in 50 minutes in Heidelberg).

ESSENTIAL / ONCE IN LIFE:

THE BEAUTIFUL POPULATION OF HEIDELBERG

Without staying with anything in particular and with everything.
Its castle, its location, its views ...
... the old area, the streets, the squares ...
... the student environment, the Studentenkuss ...
!! one of the most beautiful and romantic cities !!
