Frankfurt's districts: Zeilsheim

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. 12000

Zeilsheim is the westernmost district of the Main metropolis and was first mentioned in a document in 794.

Like all western suburbs, Zeilsheim was incorporated into Frankfurt in 1917 first after Höchst and then with Höchst in 1928.

Zeilsheim has been able to preserve much of its rural flair.

>

There are no living silos here, and on the outskirts of the village the building development has actually come to an end.

Zeilsheim was characterized by its proximity to the Farbwerke Hoechst AG in neighboring Höchst.

Many settlements, such as the "Fairytale Settlement" and the "New Colony", were built as company housing for the employees of the former pharmaceutical giant. </The settlement &laquo;workers' colony&raquo;, consisting of brick and green gardens, is now even a listed building. </p>

An old chestnut avenue leads from Höchst into the village and ends at the listed department store of the former Hoechst AG. </At the beginning of the Pfaffenwiese is the local history museum housed in the old fire engine house (1843) and the Michaelskapelle (1736), the oldest sacred building in town.</p>

Theater

}

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: https://www.facebook.com/theateraltebruecke/

Classical

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: https://www.hr-sinfonieorchester.de/media/videos/index.html

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: https://www.staatsoper.de/stream.html

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: https://www.metopera.org/season/on-demand/

Cinema

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

Literature

}

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 lovelybooks.de 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: https://www.lovelybooks.de/lesung/

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!
