Vintage Travel Posters with Frankfurt am Main Motifs
Diving into the Frankfurt am Main poster and postcard collection by s.wert, there is more to see of the Hessian metropolis than banks, heroin and blokes on the block. The colourful and retro posters display special features of the city – a visual treat for all Frankfurt fans, locals and visitors.
For example, our Frankfurt Bockenheim Poster. Illustrated is the subway car entrance to the Bockenheim Warte underground station, with Goethe University and Messeturm in the background. Perhaps a depiction of the historical Bockenheim watchtower would’ve been a more obvious choice for the poster. But hey, for the self-proclaimed fans of modernity and for those with an affinity for popping 80s colours, Peter Pininki’s subway car wins every time.
It’s not without reason that Frankfurt is called “Mainhatten“. The street which offers the most noticeable urban mix of Manhatten and Main is the New Mainzer Street. Within the banking district, the street carves out a canyon between the high-rise buildings which line it. The Mainhattan-Poster delivers the big city atmosphere right to your home. It is available in four sizes.
No insider tips here! The Eiserne Steg – the iron footbridge that connects the Römerberg with the Sachsenhausen district – is a popular spot for attaching love locks. We pay homage to the beloved bridge with the Frankfurt- Eiserner Steg Poster. We also have Eisener Steg postcards. With this in mind, send loving greetings from Frankfurt.
In fact, around 20 bridges and footbridges cross the Main in Frankfurt. From these bridges one can enjoy the best view of Germany’s only high-rise skyline. Our Frankfurt Skyline Poster poses the view from Flößerbrücke.
From there, it isn’t far to reach 2015-opened Hafenpark in Frankfurt’s Ostend. Since, the leisure area on the Main’s bank have become increasingly popular. In the background of the Frankfurter Ostend Poster, the EZB building can be seen. Also available are postcards with this Frankfurt district’s motif.
There are also things that femmes of Frankfurt miss, Nizza being one of them. Writing of her longing, author Milena Magerl refers to the Palmtree garden on the banks of the Main in her Blog mit Vergnügen. We can console you with the mediterranean-Frankfurt flair that this design brings to every room – even in Berlin!
To conclude: with the FFM collection, the s.wert team has once again managed to capture the city’s urban essence of life. Colourful, forward-thinking, traditional and a bit edgy – that is Frankfurt! The fantastic Frankfurt designs are available both as posters and postcards.
