Goodbye summer, let's hug you in September: finally we'll plunge into the most beautiful activities without nasty sweating. The Main attracts, the Taunus is near and the bicycle wants to be moved again. Whoever's wallet threatens to burst is sure to find something to do this weekend and who of you already knows all of Frankfurt's districts?
Same Saturday the bridge in our fashion and creative district will wiggle again, sorry for the corny jokes :-) The Brückenviertel in Sachsenhausen is once again celebrating the new collections in the shops on Wall- und Brückenstraße and offering delicacies to feast on. What do you imagine under "Peggy Sue Frankfurt meets The Pink Motel" ? Well, that's the name of the cocktail stand of the store of the same name for 50s and 60s fashion. Don't forget your wallet and best come without your car because of the cocktails ;-) Date: 11-23 o'clock.
Where is the best place to enjoy late summer? On the boat. Those who book an excursion with the Primus Line can enjoy a few hours of holiday in the city, not to mention the breathtaking skyline in the evening. Party people like to be on the ship during the week, the weekend is suitable for families. How about a route of the Industrial culture or a Sunday brunch on the Main?
Not only for summit strikers the trip to the Taunus is worthwhile, up to the Feldberg. The highest survey in the vicinity of Frankfurt. Various hiking trails lead to the destination, above reward not only the gastronomy, but also the incomparable view of Frankfurt's scenery. Highlight: the summit cross.
With the disappearance of summer, the bad conscience that always drove us to the outside rests, although there is so much to see inside. Sundays at the Städel, for instance: Every month, curators and other art experts present a selected work of art from the collection of the popular museum. This picture will be discussed in detail and visitors will gain insight into current art historical research. Art fans should keep the 6.9., 12 o'clock free. Then a work by August Macke is explained, one of my favourite painters.
Explore the Gutleutviertel in the west of the city by bicycle, which derives its name from the medieval "Gutleuthof". Start from the main station in the direction of Main. Squeezed between the tracks of the Hauptbahnhof in the north, the busy Baseler Straße in the east, the former Westhafen in the south and the Heizkraftwerk in the west, the quarter opens to the Main. In the "Gutleut" there is a similar multicultural bustle as in the neighbouring Bahnhofsviertel. The architectural highlight is the 112 meter high Westhafen Tower, completed in 2003. Because of its shape and the rhomboid-like facade structure, the typical apple wine glass, the "Ribbed", the "Westhafen-Tower" is considered by the Frankfurters to be the largest "ebbelweiglas" in the world.
The character of the Gutleut can best be described as: rough charm and light swell. If you can, you can take a sailing trip through the harbour basin, because from the water you have the best view of the modern architecture but also the industrial charm of this district. You can't sail? This can be changed here: sailing courses offer, among others, the Volkshochschule and the Segelcenter an.
