Something new in Frankfurt

Something new, an old town and blue sky. Plus Apfelwein, handkäse, and why not, schnitzel with Frankfurt green sauce. Few of my notes during a spring day on Frankfurt am Main are below. Some call it Mainhatten for a reason, since is an international hub in Europe and the only city in Germany with skyscrapers, but for me will always be the city of books.

Berliner Philharmoniker

The joy to discover the musical diversity in Berlin. This January I finally attended a concert at Philharmonie in KulturForum, that turned out to be a celebration of European friendship. And during Schubert Week at Pierre Boulez Saal, the conductor Thomas Hampson wished us to enjoy the music, because after all, we are in Berlin, one of the most incredible cities in the world.

From the Brandenburg Gate until the Museum Island and Berliner Dom, passing by the Komische Oper, Neue Wache, Bebelplatz, Staatsoper, and soon, Humboldt Forum (reconstructed Berlin Palace).

Art Walk Berlin

One thing I do really well is exaggerate. The previous weekend diary included many galleries, museums, a lot of coffee stops and masks thanks to a duo: 9th edition of Berlin Art Week and Galleries Weekend. This if we don’t count also the 11th Berlin Biennale for contemporary art, and all lighted up together by the Festival of Lights. I like Septembers.
