The Rhine-Main region around Frankfurt is primarily seen as a business location and is more associated with the airport, skyscrapers and the densely populated residential areas than with the countryside. But the region also has a completely different side, which can now be discovered in the "Cycling and Hiking Guide Rhine-Main Regional Park". The author couple Kristiane Müller-Urban and Eberhard Urban present the 190-kilometre Regional Park Circular Route in twenty-five tours, on which the reader can discover the diversity of the landscape, the beautiful, the exciting and the surprising.
After a short introduction to the Rhine-Main Regional Park and some general tips from the authors, a detailed description of the individual tours follows. Length, degree of difficulty, access and departure possibilities by public transport and important information on opening times of sights or places to stop are listed here. In addition, the routes are described vividly, but not too excessively. The texts make you want to go on one of the tours, but still leave enough room for the reader to discover the diversity of nature and places of interest for himself.
The book is enriched with maps and many illustrations. Thanks to the practical ring binding it is well suited to be carried along on the corresponding cycling and hiking tours. The necessary information can always remain open and is thus very quickly at hand. Whether you are attracted to Opel Zoo, whether you want to follow the Nidda route to Karben, whether you want to visit Hayn Castle on the way from Neu-Isenburg to Langen or whether you want to cycle along the Main from Frankfurt to Hochheim, in this book you will find all the information and suggestions you need to discover the Rhine-Main Regional Park on foot or by bike. An informative and entertaining guide who has the right tour for almost every need. Recommended]
