Afternoon Arrival from Frankfurt International Airport;
Immigration Officers asked the usual questions "​how long you will stay?, what is the purpose of your stay?, may I see your return ticket?". After around a minute I entered the mini-gate beside his desk. I searched for the train bound to city which has fare cost of 4.55Euro.

I roam the city through self-guided walk accompanied by a downloaded map online starting from the Frankfurt Main Station which is only around less than kilometer away to city center. I passed-by the Main Tower and River, Eiserner Steg Bridge, Romer, the red light district and how locals and other tourists hassles in the streets. Photography and video is allowed.
