Frankfurt's districts: Eschersheim

Mother's Day

On May 12, 2019 is Mother's Day! Then the breakfast table for mum is lovingly set again, beautiful pictures are painted, bouquets of flowers and chocolates are bought. And certainly a certain Heintje will also smash his immortal “mama“ in some households. In this special we want to give you a few tips on what you can do in Frankfurt on Mother's Day. We would also like to highlight the origins of Mother's Day.

Population: approx. 15,200

Eschersheim (first mentioned around 1000) is located about 4 km north of the city centre and above the Nidda river opposite the district Heddernheim.

Alt-Eschersheim is squeezed between the railway line and the Nidda (Strandbad).

The village, which was still rural around 1900, free of industry, with a view of the nearby Taunus Mountains, became a residential area for the discerning and in 1910 it was incorporated into the city of Frankfurt.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Eschersheim grew southwards with the settlement around the water tower and Am Lindenbaum (architect Walter Gropius).

>Eschersheim was largely spared the bombing of the air raids on Frankfurt during the Second World War.

1958 to 1961 expansions were carried out by the Im Mellsig settlement and the Anne-Frank settlement.

Novum: The above-ground underground tracks on Eschersheimer Landstraße divide the quarter.</In the side streets, magnificent villas dominate the cityscape.</p>

landmarks: The mighty lime tree, planted as a landmark at the end of the 17th century, has been a natural monument since 1937. It is about 20 m high and has a trunk circumference of 5 m.

Feste: The "Eschersheimer Dorffest" and the "Eschersheimer Mühlenfest" take place every two years, alternating with the "Eschersheimer Wochenende".

After 37 years the cult music club "Batschkapp" moved to the district "Seckbach" on 10.12.2013.

Back to the overview



The THEATER ALTE BRÜCKE doesn't want to remain inactive during the play-free time. The small theatre in the Brückenviertel is currently being converted into a "streaming studio", from which live theatre, improv and much more will be streamed on weekends. A really great action, which you should definitely support:


The hr symphony orchestra had to cancel planned performances even before the temporary closure of the concert halls. However, in addition to a concert that was played without an audience and broadcast live on the Internet, the orchestra also offers a large selection of concert videos on its homepage that can be enjoyed over and over again:

Also the Bavarian State Opera has a video-on-demand offer worth seeing. Since current recordings have been cancelled, older recordings are available here free of charge:

Anyone willing to invest a little money can enjoy the rich on-demand offer of the Metropolitan Opera New York with top-class productions. The offer can be booked worldwide:


The cinemas in Frankfurt are still open (as of 15.03.2020) - but usually with some restrictions. For example, only about half of the available seats are offered and hygiene standards are even more stringent. However, since it can be assumed that, as in other cities, cinemas in Frankfurt will soon be closed, more home cinema will be announced in the coming weeks. If you have a subscription to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ (from 24.03.) and Co, you will be offered a wealth of films and series that allow you to enjoy a relaxed escape from reality, which you really need from time to time, especially in these times.

You will find some especially worthwhile streaming tips (soon) HERE



Yes, just reading a good book again can be really nice. Of course you can also stroll through Frankfurt in many different ways, whether in non-fiction or novels - and without any risk of infection! Some current Frankfurt books that we would like to recommend to you can be found HERE

further Frankfurt book tips you can discover HERE. </Those who like to attend readings can also be helped. At you will find a large selection of recordings of live-readings, with which you can shorten the waiting time for the end of the reading-free time:

In addition, some authors also offer online readings via their social media accounts.

As in all areas, the same applies to the purchase of books: SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL DEALER! If possible, buy in small bookshops - either directly on site or online. Most bookstores now offer a delivery service and need your support more urgently than large mail order companies!
