Europeans have a wonderful commitment to their heritage. After so much of Germany was destroyed during WWII, many of the cities, towns and villages vowed to rebuild in the old style. They used photographs, paintings and what may have been remaining of architectural drawings to recreate their ancient buildings and streets. The effort to rebuild after such devastation would have been immense to begin with, but to reinvent medieval city centers that effectively embrace a thriving citizenry was herculean!
While in Frankfurt, we enjoyed a huge Christmas Market (with the lights on), Limed our way around (even getting stopped by the German police to make sure we weren’t drinking and scooting – we weren’t, by the way), visited the Frankfurt Zoo and got a real taste of the popularity of the German Christmas Markets!
Here are my favorite pictures!
