Unser Land befindet sich noch immer im Lockdown-Modus und es gibt nur wenige Möglichkeiten der Freizeitgestaltung außerhalb der eigenen vier Wände. Ich weiß nicht, wie es Euch geht, aber für mich ist in so einem Fall ein schöner Spaziergang durch Frankfurt immer eine willkommene Alternative. Ob zu Fuß oder auf dem Fahrrad gibt es gerade im weitläufigen GrünGürtel richtig viel zu entdecken. Was ich persönlich hier besonders mag, sind die Werke, die von Künstlern der Neuen Frankfurter Schule in Kooperation mit dem Caricatura Museum für Komische Kunst entworfen wurden. Zwar sind in den Wintermonaten und während d ...

Traffic turnaround in Frankfurt? The SUV among the bikes and always drama about parking

Platz da? Das Glück dieser Erde hängt für mobile Großstädter an einem kleinen freien Plätzchen, wo das Gefährt abgestellt wird. Sowohl Auto als auch Drahtesel müssen schließlich irgendwo bleiben. Wer hat schon einen Stellplatz in der Firma? Gerade letzte Woche drohten Mitarbeiter des Katharinenkrankenhauses tatsächlich mit Kündigung, weil Pendler ihnen Parkplätze wegnähmen. Platzmäßig ist also in Frankfurt weiterhin Dampf im Kessel. Die Zukunft der Mobilität, die ich mir über Karneval so schön im letzten Post ausgemalt hatte, sie lässt in der hiesigen Verkehrspolitik weiter auf sich wa ...

English traces in Frankfurt and four fun facts
Brexit hin, Brexit her – die Beziehungen auf der europäischen Ebene ist nun getrennt, doch wir können uns trösten: denn wer geht, geht ja niemals ganz. Ein Stück bleibt von jedem zurück. So auch von unseren britischen Freunden, die uns ja auf lokaler Ebene erfreulicherweise erhalten bleiben. Die engen Bindungen zwischen Frankfurt und Großbritannien haben ihre Spuren am Main bei uns hinterlassen. Auch wenn heute das politische Großbritannien die Europäische Union verlässt, so bleibt doch de facto das menschliche, kulturelle und persönliche Miteinander unberührt.   Obwohl ich ja mal nachgeblättert habe: Unsere e ...

Seid ihr auch vom Januar-Blues befallen? Das Jahr kommt noch nicht so richtig ins Rollen. Seufz. Der Speck ist auch noch nicht weg. Wenig Grund zur Freude bisher. Wir könnten es natürlich so angehen wie unsere „Noch-Freunde“, die Londoner. Die veranstalten seit elf Jahren im ersten Monat des neuen Jahres einen „No trousers on the tube Day“, um den Januar Blues zu vertreiben. Nun wissen wir ja, dass der englische Humor seither ein ganz besonderer ist. Und wer sich jetzt fragt, wie unsere englischen Freunde die Aktion in der U-Bahn auf dem Weg zur Arbeit umsetzen, und überlegt, ob die wirklich die Hosen runterlassen, dann darf ich euch versicher ...

Ein Frohes Neues Jahr. Willkommen in den neuen 20er Jahren. Ich hoffe, ihr seid alle gut reingerutscht! Wie beginnt ihr ein neues Jahr? Wenn es euch so geht wie mir, dann schlage ich als erstes immer gerne Pflöcke ein: Urlaubstermine, Freizeiten. Das Wesentliche halt ;-) Um dem Unbekannten, das so vor einem liegt, Struktur zu verleihen. Und um mich für den Alltag zu motivieren. Wo liegen die kleinen und großen Freiheiten, die Alltagsfreuden? Der Spaß? Auch wenn Vorsätze zwar nicht so mein Ding sind (hier liegen immer noch ein paar unangetastet von vor drei Jahren herum, bei wem auch?), muss ja nicht gleich das Hamsterrad wieder anlaufen. Wo spielt sich in ...

 „Un es will merr net in mein Kopp enei, Wie kann nor e Mensch net von Frankfort sei“, rief schon der hiesige Dichter und Journalist Friedrich Stoltze dereinst im Brustton der Überzeugung. Hätten wir ihn gefragt, was an Frankfurt so Besonders ist, seine Liste hätte vermutlich gar kein Ende genommen. Ich habe mich zusammengerissen und präsentiere euch heute meine 5 Dinge, die unsere Stadt für mich so einzigartig machen. Wir haben hier schon öfter zusammen überlegt, was unsere Stadt so liebens- oder lebenswert macht. Frankfurt schneidet in Städetranking immer gut ab, wenn es um die Lebensqualität geht. Doch was ist es eige ...

Climate, waste and air: What can I do for the environment in Frankfurt?
Es ist mal wieder Freitag. Heute ist Klimastreik. Der Aufreger der Woche hat gezeigt, dass das Klima schon vor der eigenen Haustür scharrt. Gerade hauten sich dafür der Hessische Rundfunk und die ehrwürdige Frankfurter Allgemeine gegenseitig auf die Ohren. Was war passiert? Schüler eines Gymnasiums in Sachsenhausen wollen auf Klassenfahrt in der Ostsee kreuzen. Weil alle plötzlich über das Klima reden, bekamen die Beteiligten ordentlich geschimpft, da so ein Kreuzfahrtschiff nicht als besonders umweltfreundlich gilt. Beide Medien vertraten gegensätzliche Meinungen. Doch die Diskussion zeigt: Das Klima ist nicht mehr abstrakt. Es geht auch nicht me ...

Das nördliche Mainufer ist nun für den Autoverkehr gesperrt. Also habe ich mich aufs Rad geschwungen und strampelte feste einmal quer durch die Stadt, um zu testen, wie fahrradfreundlich Frankfurt mittlerweile ist. Denn die Stadt hat ja Dolles angekündigt, nachdem Frankfurt 2018 beim Test des ADFC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrradclub) nicht besonders gut abgeschnitten hat. Wie bewegt ihr euch durch die Stadt? Gehört ihr zu denjenigen mit Lastenfahrrad? Stülpt ihr morgens den Helm aufs Haupt und strampelt eifrig ins Büro? Oder nutzt ihr wie ich das Velo vor allem für Erledigungen, oder um euch einfach ein bisschen durch die Straßen treiben ...

E-Scooter conquer Frankfurt - What do I need to know?
E-Scooter conquer Frankfurt - What do I need to know?
There they roll now. The first electric scooters are on their way in Frankfurt. Shortly decided to get on an electric scooter and jet through the city - this is now also possible in Frankfurt. In the Ostend, on the Zeil or in the Gallus I have already met some tentatively rolling fellow men. You probably noticed some of them? I have to admit. The thought has charm. The first rental scooters have already been set up at several locations in the city centre. Fast, easy and everywhere to find As the E-Scooter is now officially introduced, I wanted to know what the devices look like, where they can be found and what I might have to pay attention to. When I asked around my friends a ...

Frankfurt on the move

Our idea from Frankfurt is that there is a constant coming and going here. People from all over the world move in and out for a relatively short time. Which, on the one hand, is true. I experience this very vividly in my English courses at the VHS: Japanese who are transferred to another European country or move back home after six years' stay. Or South Americans who spent a few years in Egypt and have now been transferred to Germany and know that another country is waiting for them in three years' time. Or Hamburg-born people, who are homesick and are drawn back to the Hanseatic city, after a two-year job episode at the airport, for example. Yes, it's true, there's a constant comi ...

All around the Ostbahnhof in Frankfurt, Germany, the garbage just flies around. Bags here, Krams there. Do we have to? Let's get this straight. I'm not a cleaning freak. On the contrary. But is a full-waste city worth living in? Round 7500 garbage cans exist in the city. That's an impressive number, you'd think. My experience can be divided into three parts: 1. hooray, a garbage can, 2. hooray, a garbage can, but unfortunately it's totally stuffed and not emptied or - the Super Gau - 3. Oh shock, no garbage can. From my point of view as a dog owner, points 2 and 3 are really ugly. The thought of avoiding garbage may be honorable. But if I don't find that purposeful in my case. One ...

Winter, what now?

All Weather! I usually like winter a lot. Basically. I don't have anything against cold - that gets the circulation going - and also nothing against darkness and wetness. Purely theoretically. Unfortunately my idea of winter never occurs in our latitudes. Blue skies, waving a little over the piste and then off to Aprés Ski. Not that I ski in the first place. But this cliché drives his dread in my head…every winter again ;-) The 2019 season got off to a good start. The first resolutions were made, everything better, everything more relaxed - you know, the usual. And then calendar week five came into my life: On Monday morning, I locked myself out of my cell phone. Z ...

How did you spend the so-called „Hessenwoche“? On vacation? Skiing? Very good. I was at home and really deserved the three weeks vacation before it starts again next Monday. But don't think that I was lolling around. Okay, maybe a little. But I used the Hessenwoche, which got its name missed because Hessen is the only federal state to generously allow itself winter holidays, to get out of the way. Yes, everything has to get out. Jungfraulich, clean, empty and fine like 2019 presents itself now my storeroom, wardrobe and the cellar. I have mucked out. But one or the other of you also seem to have come up with the original idea. Just after New Year's Eve, the glasses are ...

Happy New Year! Here's the post you've all been waiting for: my annual curious Inside FFM Blog review and hopeful first outlook Post  #WoopWoop The review with outlook, if you will, with a little test about the current status, if possible and necessary like the question about the current traffic situation in Frankfurt. I'm not looking back for the sake of looking, but to relive amusing aspects (soccer in June people, does anyone want to know? ;-)) or to note outstanding exciting things for this year already. And don't worry, I won't come around the corner with fitness ideas for January. Modern training ideas are in Frankfurt the whole year over: with the own body weight at ...

That Frankfurt is the smallest metropolis - how often have we heard that before? “Metropolis with a small-town feeling“ they say again and again. Sometimes I could think, who uses the sentence, donates equal times five euro to the famous Phrasenschwein. However, it is true that Frankfurt is a small metropolis. But - yes, what is meant by that? The surface itself? When I moved from the Main-Taunus district to Frankfurt about 15 years ago, the shorter distances within the city were a big advantage. Sure, it's kind of mega to live in a huge city like Tokyo or L.A..  But if I leave the house and know that in case of doubt I can walk to my workplace in Ostend, then that ...

Zack, cold shock. I don't want to talk around the cold…sorry, hot porridge for long. November arrived with a bang. And he doesn't surprise. Rather, as always, he has wind and weather in his luggage. Think about it: Reliability is also a virtue J. No nasty surprises like endless sun. You realize I'm saving myself with gallows humor through the grey day, because it doesn't help anything. We in Hesse have autumn. However, how does it go again? After the crazy summer in which we lived outside and wore T-shirts, I completely forgot to know what to wear in autumn and how to have fun in the eleventh month of the year. Is it the same for you? Although I have to tell you something: ...

I just got back from my vacation. In order to make it easier for me to get used to everyday life, I have developed a strategy with the aim of creating relaxing moments in everyday life. That's why a few years ago I was so enthusiastic about the concept „Frankfurt for Frankfurter“ respectively „Guest in my own city“ - because I have such a weakness for hotels. And what shall I tell you? Together with a friend, I already stayed in a five-star luxury hotel for one weekend in 2015!!!! The main thing is to get out of everyday life - I just read that in the newspaper and can only confirm it myself. And because it, As you can read here on Frankfurt-Tipp, at our pla ...

A Celtic prince as Hessian cultural ambassador
Barbaric, daredevil, apparently not very squeamish in his manner was the man who has been standing in front of the Alte Oper for a few days now, in twenty-five copies and designed by Ottmar Hörl. The conceptual artist is known for his serial figures and already developed the traffic light manikin for the celebration of German unity in Frankfurt. Now there's one man. But not just anyone, but a Celtic prince with 2500 years on his back. The Celtic prince should in future be a brand ambassador for the culture of the state of Hesse. “What the Bavarians want their King Ludwig to be to Bavaria, the Hesse should become to the Celtic prince“, Hörl wished at the unveiling of t ...

„Oy vey“ I thought when Sunday autumn burst in so stormy that I immediately felt like looking for a sofa, blanket and cuddly films. “Oy vey“, is one of my favorite Yiddish expressions, because it always makes me smile. Do you know such expressions that always make you feel good when you hear them? For the first time I heard „Oy vey“ in the American TV series „The Nanny“ from the 90s. Who still remembers the mishmash of New York life, English and Jewish culture? And so today I have good news for all lovers of Jewish culture for your autumn planning - after all, the "Jewish Film Days" are in the house. These take place alternately with ...

So, now she's almost done. The new old town. And you can say what you want. But like Bolle, I'm looking forward to the opening. I'm looking forward to the view in Braubachstraße. No, the BEAUTIFUL view of a wide archway instead of the ugly Technical Town Hall that used to stand there. You see, I was in favour of reconstruction from the beginning. No, I can't think of anything critical about that. And don't think I'm uncritical. There are enough people who would say the opposite about me. There is enough of Frankfurt that I don't like at the moment. But I consider the Altstadt project to have been absolutely successful after a visit. Not only as a visual lesson for former buildings ...
