We've had some lovely spring weather - perfect for wandering around with a camera! This is the Hauptwache or the main guard post, built in 1730. This is right at one end of the main shopping street and is now a lovely little cafe.
As you can see - it is now surrounded by modern buildings and there is an underground station below it too.
Zeil is the main shopping street and this new shopping centre was completed in the last few years. Quite a unique design! I keep wondering how they clean all that glass .... or maybe they don't!
Paulskirche - one of the first buildings to be rebuilt after the war, this former church and sometime parliament building is now used for exhibitions, concerts and official ceremonies.
Paulsplatz - that tall building houses both Subway and Starbucks!
It's March and not very warm yet, but the cafe culture is very much alive. One of many reasons I'm pleased to be back in Europe!
I'm making the most of the city for the short time we're here. I've found a great house and we'll be moving to a very sleepy little place north of the city in early April. I'm told our furniture will arrive at the port of Bremerhaven next week - so everything seems to be working out perfectly!
