Between Frankfurt am Main and the large number of nearby towns and municipalities, the region still boasts a number of large green expanses. Fields, meadows and woodland areas extend far into the core area around Frankfurt and provide local inhabitants with recreation opportunities right on their doorstep. To enhance the value of the free space, the RhineMain Regionalpark has the task of protect and develop these landscape areas, which are vital) for a good lifestyle.
Recreation areas and points along the regional park routes invite to linger or tell interesting stories about certain landscapes. The routes lead the visitors past agricultural landscapes, idyllic „Landscape islands“, industrial heritage sites, historical Gardens and parks as well as important sites from the early history to the present time.
The aim is to raise people‘s awareness of the environment and nature in this part of Germany and to awaken a child‘s spirit of discovery. All of this in a contrasting landscape, side by side with picturesque natural spaces.
The regional park routes lead through the extraordinarily varied Rhine-Main landscape. To discover them, you have to take the walking or cycling routes through the regional park. The routes are marked with a red triangle and already cover more than 550 km. The regional park uses wooden steles to mark attractions and provide a wide range of information on history and the landscape. The detailed leisure maps can be used to plan the next bike tour. They also provide a good overview of the area.
