Günthersburgpark is located at the eastern end of Frankfurt's north end. Once laid out by the Rothschild banking family, the 7.4-hectare park has been open to the public since 1892. On the spacious meadows, sun-hungry people lie at warm temperatures, friends meet for picnics or children play football and catch. The large playground is also an attraction for families with children in the cooler temperatures. Because here there is something for almost all age groups: sandboxes and swings for the little ones, slides and climbing facilities for the older ones, table tennis tables or basketball baskets for older children.
The adventure playground is of course a highlight for children, but in summer it is outperformed by another offer: The fountains. When the temperatures climb up, the water bubbles out of five stone figures, which is not only a pleasant cooling, but also a great play opportunity. So you can hear children shouting and laughing loudly on a regular basis and also discover many accompanying parents who are not sad when they themselves get a small refreshing shower.
Otherwise there is another place for adults in the Günthersburgpark where they can relax well: Right next to the Orangerie, the last remnant of the Rothschild era, which today houses the Frankfurt Child Protection Association, is the Café, which is open all year round and offers hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks. Here you can sit comfortably under the trees, hear the children laughing from afar and simply switch off from everyday life.
An absolute highlight can be found in summer on the meadow area, which was added to the park in 1991. The open-air festival STOFFEL, initiated by the Stalburg Theater, takes place here for one month. Music, cabaret, children's theatre free of charge and in the open air - this is really a very special experience that you should not miss.
Ob for a walk, a little relaxation in the Parkcafé or for exuberant fun on the large playground - the Günthersburgpark is definitely worth a visit all year round!
