Do you love nature?

Speaking of Frankfurt, most people think of banks, the Frankfurt Trade Fair and a skyline made of glass and steel. The city on the Main also has plenty to offer for those who prefer meadows, forests and fresh air, however. Tourists can visit Germany's largest inner-city forest here. The city forest covers an area of about 5,785 ha and has plenty of space for hiking, cycling and relaxing. Many residents call the city forest "Frankfurt's green lung" due to this.
