Really Cool Stuff In Frankfurt

Frankfurt is full of skyscrapers.  According to the wikipedia page (which does not seem to have been updated since 2011) Germany has 13 skyscrapers.  12 of those skyscrapers are in Frankfurt.  Yes, 92% of the German skyscrapers are in Frankfurt.  (Whether or not this remains to be true is a task for another blogger.)
