7 ways to enjoy Frankfurt in spring

Spring (or frühling auf Deutsch ) is when Frankfurt’s worker bees begin to shake off the long cold gray winter and make the most of the warmer weather in this international metropolis. The weather may not really get hot until May, but the first signs of a change in the season mean it’s time to forget about business for a while.

Look at the city from above, find a green space, and order a glass of ebbelwoi. These are the 7 best things to do in Frankfurt in spring.

Rocket 650 feet to the highest point in Frankfurt

Germany’s skyscraper city Mainhattan is best viewed from above. At 200 meters (240 meters including the antenna), the Main Tower is part of the impressive skyline and a landmark for the city of Frankfurt. Take a moment to get the best view of the city from the observation deck of the Main Tower and admire Frankfurt under the changing light.

Elevators take visitors to the observation deck 650 feet in the sky every day of the week. For more than just a view, order a cocktail or full meal at the Main Tower Restaurant & Lounge with its 26-foot panoramic windows.

Ride the Ferris wheel at the Frankfurt Spring Fair

Dippemess is the largest and oldest folk festival in the Rhine region and is centered around the Festplatz (Fairground) on the Ratsweg. The fair dates back to the 14th century and was a market for local products such as ceramics. And you always drink a little beer.

Today’s festival is best known for its modern carnival rides, roller coasters, and fireworks. If you miss the festival, be aware that it actually happens twice a year: once in April and at the end of September.

Relax in the Frankfurt Botanical Gardens

Frankfurt’s Botanical Garden, Palmengarten , is an oasis in the city. Although the flower house offers visitors colorful flowers throughout the year, spring is the best time to visit the gardens.

Founded in 1868 by the citizens of the city, it offers a temporary escape to exotic lands such as the African savanna or the Brazilian rainforest. The gardens cover more than 50 acres with multiple greenhouses and about 6,000 botanical species.

Drinking in Frankfurt’s cider taverns

Spring is the perfect season for apfelwein (or ebbelwoi in the local dialect) in Frankfurt. Don’t confuse apple wine with cider; It is crunchy and sugar-free and is the quintessential drink of the region.

Go to the historic district of Sachsenhausen, south of the Altstadt (old town), for the best and oldest taverns in apfelwein . Visit traditional taverns like Dauth Schneider and Adolf Wagner.

If you want to take your cider on the road, the Apple Wine Express (Ebbelwei Express ) is a historic tram that combines sightseeing with drinking. For the children there is non-alcoholic cider and sandwiches. Everyone can enjoy traditional Schlager music.

Relax on the beach above the city

Deck8 is a perfectly Frankfurt beer garden. Avoiding the traditional features of other beer gardens, the site is built over a parking lot and offers pools, palm trees, and views.

If the weather fails you, a glazed area maintains the atmosphere while avoiding drops.

Explore the best parks

A relief from the winter gray, a trip to the woods is perfect for the whole family. In Waldspielpark, there is a large playground with a swimming pool and a natural maze for the little ones (children) and adults Goetheturm to rise. This tower is from 1931 and is one of the tallest wooden observation towers in Germany. The view of Frankfurt rivals that of the Main Tower.

Other excellent parks in Frankfurt:

  • Parque Carl-von-Weinberg – Distrito Niederrad
  • Forest play park Heinrich-Kraft-Park – Distrito Fechenheim
  • Forest play park Scheerwald – Distrito Oberrad
  • Schwanheimer Waldspielpark – Distrito Schwanheim
  • Forest play park Louisa – District Sachsenhausen
  • Tannenwald forest play park – Sachsenhausen district

Stroll through the Museumufer

A walk along the museum embankment is best done in spring. This walk runs through the city center, lined with the best museums in Frankfurt. These include the German Film Museum, the fine arts at the Städel Museum, and the Senckenberg Museum (one of the largest museums dedicated to natural history in Germany).

On Saturdays (approximately 9:00 to 14:00) this area is a hunting ground for bargains as the site of Frankfurt’s largest flohmarkt (flea market). It is much better to do your shopping when it is not raining.
