Rent a bike in Hanau

by Skovdaddy

Does anyone know of anywhere to rent a bike in Hanau? I used to live there as a child, and one of my favorite childhood memories is biking along the many trails of Hanau. I want to rent a bike for a day to just ride around and explore just like I did when I was a kid.

There doesn't really seem to be a shop that rents bicycles in Hanau. The only address I found is this one:


They seem to specialise in trailers for kids but they are listed for bicycle rent on one website. Maybe you should try sending them an email.

If this doesn't help you might want to try the list of bicycle shops in Hanau :

RMV lists following to rentals for the Mainz-Kinzig-County and Hanau,__name=Main-Kinzig-Kreis_20und_20Hanau,__kennung=9.html
Both are however not directly in Hanau.

Basically you could also rent e.g. in Frankfurt and transport the bicycle on regional trains or S-Bahn to Hanau. The bicycle itself is free (you need of course a ticket for yourself). This works best outside of the rush hours.

Travel Tips for Hanau am Main


by Russell_the_Wombat


Hanau's quarter named Altstadt, the so-called old town, is the oldest part of the city but do not expect much old town flair. I found all in all 3 buildings that can be considered historical, although with a lot of post-war repairs.

The prettiest of them is this half-timbered building, the former town hall, in the small square in the middle of the old town. A baroque well has been put up in front of it. The well is not in use any more but planted with geraniums.

The building is known as "Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus", it is the seat of the German association of Goldsmith Art. Exhibitions on jewellery and other goldsmiths' works are shhown in there.


Behind Goldschmiedehaus the oldest church of the city is located. Marienkirche used to be the medieval parish church, after the first and second reformation it was the Calvinist parish church of the old town.

The name does not translate to "Church of Our Lady" or "Church of the Virgin Mary" as one might think. It got this name only in the early 19th century after the unification of Calvinists and Lutherans. The church was named after the recently deceased Princess Maria of Hessen.

Unfortunately the church was closed when we tried the door handles. It was late in the afternoon and obviously too late. Since the church dates back to the middle ages there will be some interesting pieces of art inside.

I also tried the windows but no chance.

Huh, this roof is slippery!

I pushed hard to lift up the leaning steeple.

If the wind blows from the West, the planes to Frankfurt airport pass over the city of Hanau. They were flying really low, although the airport is not that close. When the birds fly low this usually means bad weather and we were prepared for rain.

Apart from the two churches (the second one is presented in the following travelogue) and Goldschmiedehaus, all the rest of the Old Town are post-war boxes with doors and windows, applying the term 'architecture' to them requires a whole lot of good-will.
