Hanau am Main Things to Do

  • Philippsruh Castle

    Philippsruh Castle is Hanau's number one sight. Located in a nice park next to the Main, the castle should be on every Hanau tourist's agenda. It was built in the early 18th century in Baroque style by Julius Ludwig Rotweil and Jacques Girard. Landgraves of Hessen-Kassel used it as a summer residence for several decades until the French under...

  • Neustaedter Rathaus

    The barocque style Neustädter Rathaus was built in 1723-33 by Christian Ludwig Hermann . It was heavily destroyed during the war just like its counter part the Altstaedter Rathaus but was rebuilt again according to the old plans. Whereas the latter one is now a GOLDMSMITH HAUS the Neustaedter ( New Town) Rathaus serves today as the city hall where...

  • GOLDSCHMIEDEHAUS

    The half- timbered Goldsmith House used to serve as the town's city hall before being replaced by the Neustaedter Rathaus. It was heavily destroyed during the war on Macrh 19, 1945 but was rebuilt by the Hanauers. Now it has exhibits of local jewellery. To my knowledge it is closed on Mondays so make sure to check the opening hours that are posted...

  • Schloss Phillipsruhe

    A must to see. A beautiful museum with a great park ( designed according to French style) and other little extras. Erected by Napoleon III in 1701 it later on served as the residence of the Counts of Hanau. Named after the the second last reigning Count Philipp Reinhard. Located at the banks of the Main River you can also catch a nice boat ride!...

  • Marienkirche

    The Protestant MARIENKIRCHE was built in 1454 but saw changes in 1561 as well as in 1961. It is well worth a visit (beautiful glass stained windows)and if I remember right there is also a crypt. Tours are available.Link below for more pics and info- however, it is entirely in German. If anyone needs help, I can certainly translate..:)

  • Wilhelmsbad- the Crown Prince's Spa

    Built in 1777 after a number of wars in the region Wilhelmsbad served as a spa and was named after Crown Prince Wilhelm of Hessen Kassel. It is absolutely charming and one can spend the whole day there. Stroll through the huge park, take a look at the well preserved merry-go-round, a little tunnel underneath with a small suspension bridge and...

    more
  • Goldschmiedehaus

    The Deutsche Goldschmiedehaus (German Goldsmith's Building) is a very nice half-timbered house in central Hanau. It is one of very few old buildings left in central Hanau, as the city was widely destroyed by bombings during the second world war. Today, the Goldschmiedehaus houses a museum which focuses on precious metal art. I couldn't go in, but...

  • Schloss Phillipsruhe

    Externally, this is a beautiful palace. Generally, I am not interested in history after the 1600s and this has artifacts primarily from the 18th century. However, if that period of history does interest you, there are lovely displays. A handful of rooms are arranged to show how they would have looked during the 18th century.One interesting feature...

  • Bierbörse

    The 1st Hanau Bierbörse took place Aug 19-21 '05. Over 40 stands there mostly selling bier, some local and others from further afield, just the sort of thing to tempt me. We were there on the last day, a Sunday and the weather was not great, but each stall had some shelter and we had a great day. Hope to visit in 2006 ( Aug 18 -20)More photos in a...

  • SCHLOSSGARTEN

    Located in the center of the old part of Hanau it used to be part of the chateau that doesn't exist anymore. Across the street the stables were preserved and now they house the Hanauer Library. The park has wonderful flowerbeds and mature trees and in the center of it you will find a pond with a fountain that can be illuminated at night. There is...

  • Frankfurter Tor

    One of the last two gates that are left over from the big wall that surrounded Hanau at one time. The Frankfurter Gate was built in 1722 and faces of course the direction towards Frankfurt.The other remaining gate the Nuernberger Tor is in the southern part of the city.

Hanau am Main Nightlife

  • G.O.D. - Garden Of Delight

    Nice Irish Pub in Hanau's center - we yet had some hard time to find that place. Anyway, once visitors find that pub it's pretty easy to park the car on sideroads. Pub is quite huge not a cosy place but providing great program/live music/concerts! If it wasn't for their great live music/band I rather would not go there again, I guess. Too crowdy.

  • Cocktails! Yeeha!

    One of my passions is enjoying a cool cocktail in a nice bar. So I didn't say "No" when my friend Henning told me about this cocktail bar just around the corner of his apartment. Cubana has a large selection of cocktails, among them all the classics from Caipirinha and Sex on the Beach, to some cool own creations. Prices are on a normal level, but...

    Hanau is just 20 minutes away from Frankfurt haupbahnhof. It's possible to travel by S -Bahn or a DB train. DB is quicker and tickets are valid on both.

    When travelling to a city one certainly doesn't head to the forests..:) However, this one called Bulau is well worth your while..It is located at the end of the Feuerbachstrasse on your way out of the northend of Hanau. It has wonderful nature trails to walk on and if you visit during May you can pick Lilies of the Valley in certain spots. You...
