Yes, it's true, November has lived up to its dull reputation for the first two weeks. But in the middle of the month Frankfurt attracts with activities that can only make you feel good:
1. What do Frankfurters love more than their Main? The skyline, isn't it? This also seems to have been my favourite museum, the DAM (German Architecture Museum), which just opened the promising exhibition "HIMMELSTÜRMEND Hochhausstadt Frankfurt 8 November 2014 - 19 April 2015". How and why did Frankfurt grow into heaven? The exhibition addresses this question and offers an overview of the city's skyscraper history: from the reconstruction after 1945 to the house war in the Westend to the present time of the global financial markets. Selected buildings will be placed in their historical, economic and cultural context. I'm looking forward to finding out how the skyscrapers got to the old merchant town.
2. Hottest tip for the 15th and 16th: "The Forsythe Company" will perform again this weekend at the Bockenheimer Depot. The American choreographer William Forsythe has his dancers perform "Decreation". Forsythe, who once worked creatively with the Frankfurt Ballet, founded the company in 2005. Who finds thus still another gap in its calendar - absolutely look at.
3. Include an afternoon coffee for Saturday or Sunday after strolling on the Main - either in the Margarethe, with my friends not only because of its good coffee popular, in the Braubachstrasse. Or simply in the stylish Café des DAM settle.
4. Still exciting: the clou of the MMK - there are now three of you. The two locations Domstraße and Zollamt were supplemented by the Taunusturm, so that art lovers can see even more of the approximately 5,000 works in the collection, which ranges from the 1960s to contemporary art. Is this a result of the creative competition with the Städel, which previously focused primarily on the "old", and can now also do "modern" in the basement? I've been wondering for quite some time what the Modern Museum will make of it. The best thing is to go there and find out for yourself.
5. Snuggle up on the couch to watch one of the hottest American actors doing his talented work (generously leaving the gym to others, like me). Josh Lucas plays in "The Company". a lawyer between public defense and mafia; currently he is also successful on US television with the detective series "The Mysteries of Laura". After the audience ratings have risen by more than 50% at the time of the broadcast, the NBC television station is currently shooting new episodes!
