“Gruss aus Frankfurt”
(Greetings from Frankfurt)
“Es is kää Stadt uff der weite Welt
die so merr wie mei Frankfort gefällt,
und es will merr net in mein Kopp enei
wie kann nor e Mensch net von Frankfort sei.”
(There is no city in the whole world
which I like as well as my Frankfurt,
and it does not want to enter my head
how someone could not be from Frankfurt.)
Central image depicts the historic Frankfurt Römer (city hall). Originally configured from eight large homes, it has been the seat of Government in Frankfurt since 1405. Side images include the medieval Eschenheimer Turm (tower), once a gate to the city, as well as the Frankfurt Operahouse and Playhouse. Text is the first stanza of a poem entitled “Mei Frankfort” (My Frankfurt) by Friedrich Stoltze (1816-1891).
