Fresh to the water - Spring hiking trail in the east with 6 stations

Frankfurt is only city, but not land or even water and river? All wrong. Knowed how is the solution and who like me recently on the dog came, finds also water. Or a lot of new stuff. The new thing is so spectacular that I wanted to share it with you today. Because the weather is already more promising, at least less cold and even sometimes strong sunny. Not that dog owners should be impressed. :-)

In any case I recently discovered water on the Lohrberg! Not that I dug it up myself. But natural springs, streams, ditches and still waters? When does one normally come across it? In Frankfurt, there is even a six-kilometre spring hiking trail between Seckbach and Bergen-Enkheim as part of the green belt: but one after the other.

Also on the Lohrberg countless springs spring up because rainwater meets limestone and calcareous clay. The result are swamps that grow around the large harrow barks as shown in the picture above. But the sources don't just swell up like this. No, when water crosses, it flows into a stream. All of this is wonderful and exciting, as in the show with the mouse for children and curious adults, explained by “Äppler Haus am Lohrberg“.

Also, we are here among us: for years I had no idea how great the Lohrberg is. So if you haven't been up there yet - I've missed a lot of relaxation and experiences. Don't make the same mistake, just put it in your hiking boots and get fresh to the water!
