Places to drive to from Frankfort/Wiesbaden

by dldkag

I'll be in the Frankfort/Wiesbaden area visiting my brother and family in late April. We're considering our options for places to visit while I'm there. We would like to limit our decision to places no more than 2-3 hours away (by car). We'll also need to consider places that might be fun or interesting for small children. Other than that we're wide open to suggestions. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks a lot.

Thanks for the response. The 4 children are very young (6 months to 7 years old). Even with that in mind, we'd be very open to castles or markets or other outdoor activities.

I'll look into the suggestions you've made, and would be open to anything else. Thanks again.

You might wish to visit the Frankfurt Zoo: www.zoo-frankfurt.de/index_e.html. The Phantasialand Park might be at the far reaches of the distance you wish to travel, but it does have free admission for children under 7: www.phantasialand.de. A site that covers Germany, with local and regional links: www.travelforkids.com/Funtodo/Germany/germany.htm. The German national tourism site, and most local tourism sites will have links for kids activities. Another site you can visit: www.whatsonwhen.com, will have links for family activities and events for at least Frankfurt. Gary

In Frankfurt, the Senckenberg Natural History Museum might be interesting for small children - they have a temporary "Deep Sea"-Exhibtion at the moment. There is also a theme park "Lochm├╝hle" in the vicinity, with fun rides, farm animals etc. which is very suitable for small children. Also, the "Hessenpark", an open-air museum with old half-timbered houses.

Then there is a summer palace of the former German emperor dynasty in Bad Homburg, with guided tours. In Kronberg, there is a small medieval castle. In Bad Camberg (45 min. driving time from Frankfurt) you can find the "Vogelburg", a parrot zoo where neglected parrots have found a new home, with the possibility to feed them also.

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

Commerzbank Tower

by sue_stone

Frankfurt has some fabulous skyscrapers - hence its nickname "Mainhatten" (it is located on the banks of the River Main). Located right near the Main Tower is Europe's tallest office block - the Commerzbank Tower.

It stands 298m tall, if you include the antenna. When it was completed in 1997, it was the tallest building in Europe, though has since been surpassed by a couple of apartment blocks in Moscow. The tower is home to the Commerzbank headquarters, and is unfortunately not open to the public. You will have to make so with the views from the Main Tower instead.

Street Festival Sachsenhausen

by Bernd_L

Frankfurts city district Sachsenhausen celebrates a street festival in summer with lots of food, drinks and music. You can meet people from almost all over the world at this multicultural event.

We came here during a VT-meeting at the end of August (don't know if it is every year at this time) when we were looking for a place to dine. So we found this by chance.

Waldstadion

by bonio

The home of soccer club Eintracht Frankfurt and NFL Europe side Frankfurt Galaxy is in April 2003 undergoing extensive alterations. I guess this is in preparation for the 2006 soccer world cup? Stands behind the goals / endzones are just about complete, one side is being built and another old stand was still there, not for long I guess?

Frankfurt's Secret Garden - Von Bethmann Park

by Weissdorn

Tucked away on the corner of the Berger Strasse and the Friedberger Anlage, lies the secret garden of Frankfurt. Stumbling on this garden is like walking in on the park scene in the movie "Notting Hill". This garden once was the private property of Moritz von Bethmann, one of the wealthiest Jewish bankers in Frankfurt. In 1941, when the Nazis seized Jewish property by force, the park was made the property of Frankfurt. In 1952, the Bethmann family decided it could remain property of the city, and today it can be considered Frankfurt's most beautiful park. The park includes a Shinto garden, with temple and park, the remains of the old Friedberger guard tower, and a wonderful flower garden. It's tranquil and quiet, and many people come here to read, of play a game of garden chess, or stoll in the wonderful gardens. The temple is open to the public during daylight hours.

The most wonderful feeling in this park is to sit in the temple during a summer shower.

Stadtwald Frankfurt

by MichaelFalk1969

The "Stadtwald" wood to the south of Frankfurt is the largest recreational area in the city - a good place for hiking, cycling and jogging and especially beautiful in autumn. The only annoying thing is that, due to its proximity to the airport, the tranquility is occasionally disturbed by overflying airplanes.

Location: Get out at the tram station "Oberschweinstiege", and you are right in the forest.
