Good evening,

Manfred Koehler

Head of department of the Rhein-Main editorial team of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

  • Follow I follow

We know more on Wednesday:

At 11.30 a.m. the Mayor of Frankfurt wants to speak to the press about the allegations against him.

We would certainly have some to the esteemed mayor.

One falls, the other rises:

Astrid Wallmann, a member of the CDU, is to head the Hessian state parliament. She succeeds Boris Rhein, who is to be elected prime minister next Tuesday.


Yes, Astrid Wallmann is related to the former mayor of Frankfurt and Prime Minister of Hesse, Walter Wallmann, who died in 2013.

He was her uncle.

One lands, the other flies off:

The airport operator Fraport expects up to 75 percent of the passenger volume at Frankfurt Airport this summer that was reached in the last year before Corona, 2019.

On the one hand, that's nice, but on the other hand, it can lead to bottlenecks in handling, as Fraport CEO Stefan Schulte said on Wednesday at the group's annual general meeting.

So plan an early arrival if you plan to go abroad in the summer.


Uber also serves as a sales partner for taxis and transport associations, as becomes clear in a conversation with the American CEO Dara Khosrowsha +++ a case of monkeypox has been confirmed in Frankfurt +++ the Nippon Connection film festival will show more until May 29th than 100 short and long films.

I wish you a pleasant evening

Yours, Manfred Koehler
