Keep your distance - Environment Department Head Heilig recommends walks in the GreenBelt

Yes, it's hard to stick to the hashtag #we stay at home in bright sunshine. It is also difficult to keep the ban on contact. Yes, there is nothing against going outside in nice spring weather. "Even the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends daily walks in the fresh air," says Rosemarie Heilig, head of the environment department. "Even jogging and cycling are still possible if you observe the distance rules." That's all well and good, BUT: now you should definitely resist the temptation to visit the particularly highly frequented places in the city - especially the popular banks of the Main. </Therefore, the city councillor appeals to the people of Frankfurt not to flock to the banks of the Main in droves on sunny evenings and weekends. "Avoid any crowds. Please do not all make a pilgrimage to the Main. Please choose carefully a destination in the Green Belt!" </The Green Belt offers on 248 square kilometres many attractive landscapes and paths where you can easily avoid other walkers. In a series on the Facebook page "Frankfurt Green City", the Environment Department has already presented five of these "little escapes": </The Green Belt Anniversary Trail through the city forest from the Louisa to the Neu-Isenburg terminus./p>

- the Green Belt Fruit Path through the Sossenheim Unterfeld

- the city wilderness in the Nordpark Bonames - an exciting alternative to the Old Airfield

- the Heiligenstock at the city limits of Bad Vilbel - an alternative to the Lohrpark

- the Fechenheim Main Arc with the newly created side arm of the Main.

All these targets can also be found on the municipal internet site under "GreenBelt".

"We can be thankful that our parks - unlike in Paris or Rome - are still open," says Heilig. "In order to preserve this freedom of movement, I appeal to everyone to strictly observe the rules of contact even in the Green Belt." </According to the current legal situation, excursions are only permitted alone, in pairs or with persons from your own household. You have to keep at least one and a half meter, better two meters distance to your fellow men </p>
