"Around the Dom" Frankfurt am Main Travelogue by Russell_the_Wombat

In bright sunlight everything looks so much nicer. From Römerberg we reached the Dom. Next to it I spotted this beautiful medieval stonehouse (surely rebuilt, too, but it looks more like its original shape than those hourses in Römerberg).

The Schirn is a large modern art gallery next to the Dom. It shows only temporary exhibitions, no permanent collection. Mommy was not interested in the one they were having at that time, for which I was glad. I wanted to roam the city, not to spend hours in a dark museum locker.

In front of the Dom they have done excavations and unearthed the foundations of medieval buildings. All overlooked by the majestic steeple.

Post-war buildings surround this ensemble, though. Let's walk down to the river next!
