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 neighborhood that had a mix of residential and commercial spaces.

I can’t get over the cleanliness of this area…even the back alleys were spotless.

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.
