Frankfurt am Main, Hessen (3) – Evening Stroll (Day Six)

An evening stroll along the banks of the Main River give us an insight to constant riverbank activities as we go from twilight to darkness.    We travel west on the north banks from Moselstrabe, across the Friedesnbrucke (bridge) to the south banks and travel east to Eiserner Steg (pedway) where we cross and head back to the hotel.

The Skyline Plaza was across the street from our hotel.  A supermarket, located just to the left of the entrance doors, has a great deli.  Opened until 3:00 am, we were able to get some late night snacks after returning from a long day trip.  This evening ended with a stop here.
