Frankfurt am Main Off The Beaten Path: 148 reviews and 217 photos

  Schwanheimer Wiesen
by MichaelFalk1969

A hiking/jogging/cycling-path ("Grüngürtelrundweg") of 60 km surrounds Frankfurt and is very popular as a recreational area in all seasons. The late artist F.K. Waechter donated some of his nature-themed works (based on his comical drawings) to the city of Frankfurt - they are now on display in the open, along the "Grüngürtel" path. Among them are a giant woodpecker, an oak with "monster children", an owl wearing a lambswool pullover and "Struwelpeter" (a willow tree with eyes that glow in the dark). These are no big sights, but if you happen to stay longer in Frankfurt or if you are looking for a nice nature spot in the vicinity of the city, this is the place.
