It’s a kind of tradition that we visit every year one of Germany’s beautiful cities and its surroundings. This time the modern business city, Frankfurt am Main located in the state of Hesse.

Frankfurt, located at the same latitude as Luxembourg is the fifth largest city in Germany. With my “flight case” (read first aid for a pregnant woman) and Maxi Cosi in the back of the car (otherwise you cannot leave the hospital with your baby) we took the scenic route through Sauerland on our way to Frankfurt am Main.

I flew last week for a city trip to Palma de Mallorca and sought out the best sights for you. One thing the Balearic islands all have in common is the weather. Most of the time it is good with plenty of sunshine.
