Frankfurt am Main, Hesse (1) – Bockenheim (Day Six)
Bockenheim is a district in Frankfurt am Main that lies north west of city centre beside the University area. There was nothing specifically special about this area except to seek out a toy store on the main commercial strip called Leipziger. Being an hour early before store opening, we decided to go for a cruise through this neighbourhood that had a mix of residential and commercial spaces.

Small eateries on the side street
I can’t get over the cleanliness of this area…even the back alleys were spotless.

A number of streets converge at this spot. Leipziger Street, Grempstrabe, Friesengasse and Basaktstrabe
The street ad board is kept neat and tidy
DHL, the local mail delivery service, working on a Saturday. The postman didn’t hesitate to leave his bike unattended as he makes his delivery.
This and the following three photos depict a community/allotment garden. Small plots of land are either owned or rented by individuals wanting some green space to grow vegetables or flowers. Some of these plots may have a small playground for their little ones.

The streets start to fill up as the stores start opening.
