10 suggestions for your weekend landscape experience
The Regionalpark Tourguide
The new regional park tour guide is hot off the press. The 72-page, handy brochure describes the 10 most beautiful tours in the RheinMain Regional Park.
Whether on foot or by bike – on 550 uniformly signposted kilometers, you can already do sports in the RheinMain Regional Park, enjoy the landscape or simply let the wind blow your nose. The regional park routes are already an integral part of the region and can be used both for the daily commute to work and for trips with the whole family. The Regionalpark Gesellschaft has now expanded its range with the new tour guide. The compact booklet offers ready-made suggestions for bike tours, hikes and excursions, which also lead to so many unknown corners in our region.
“The RheinMain Regional Park unites an exciting region full of contrasts. Vibrant cities alternate with green forests and diverse landscapes. The tour guide takes up all these facets, ”Claudia Jäger explained the idea. “We want to encourage the residents and guests of the region to look at the cultural and natural landscape of the Rhine-Main area with open eyes. Let us take you on a change of perspective and explore the landscapes – right on your doorstep. ”
Regionalpark Managing Director Kjell Schmidt adds: “Along our individual routes there are always great views of the Frankfurt skyline, the Odenwald, the Feldberg im Taunus, but also the central traffic axes of the region. “This diversity in the landscape is what makes Rhein-Main so special,” says Schmidt. “Nature and the metropolitan area are connected in a unique way here”.
A total of 10 tours were selected and prepared for the new regional park tour guide. Each tour tells its own story, but it also has very practical places to stop off. Tour attributes and highlights on the route are explained and each point out their special characteristics. For each of the 10 tours there is a route description written by experienced hiking and cycling professionals. In the “tour story” the highlights of the route are taken up and backgrounds explained. The most important information is visually highlighted and pictures already give you a “regional park feeling” when you leaf through it.
Claudia Jäger thanked the sponsors in particular: “The project was supported by the State of Hesse, by Fraport AG and by the Frankfurt RheinMain business initiative, which enabled us to implement the idea for the guide as we have it today hold, make it possible ”.
The tour guide will be published in a run of 10,000 copies and will in future be available free of charge in the Regional Park Portalen Weilbacher Kiesgruben and Wetterpark Offenbach. It can also be ordered free of charge by sending a prepaid envelope.

Auf einer Baumskulptur mitten in einer weitläufigen Wiese hat man einen fantastischen Rundblick und lauscht dabei der Klanginstallation. Die kunstvolle Konstruktion des Eisenbaums bei Flörsheim steht symbolisch für die gesamte Tour in einer rekultivierten Landschaft, deren besondere Ästhetik in Szene gesetzt wird.
The liberated riverbed of the Nidda and the gushing mineral springs in Bad Vilbel play the main parts in this tour. The scenery, however, does not just consist of floodplains, it also includes orchards and the Frankfurt skyline. In the spa park of Bad Vilbel, we meet the best supporting actor of the tour, a sea god.
On the Hohe Straße, the route itself is something special – this historic trade route is part of an ancient west-east connection from Santiago de Compostela to Kiev. You will find yourself very close to the sky here, while at the Main and the Kinzig, the idyll can be found directly on the waterfront.
In addition to a history of craftsmanship and industry that goes back centuries, the city of Offenbach also boasts modern urbanity. The tour along the green ring from the Main to the Main offers an ever changing reflection of the dynamic development of the city – and an expansive landscape of the curving Main River.
The river landscape between the Rhine and the Main offers us an interplay of hydropower, industrial culture and idyll. The legacy of Adam Opel meets dreamy, tranquil oxbow lakes. A highlight of this tour is the Mainspitze – the mouth of the Main – with a broad view of the two rivers that give this region its name.
The tour in the south of the Regionalpark is reminiscent of a scenic illustrated arch that reflects the life of people over the centuries. The relaxed and varied ride through fields, forests and meadows offers vivid insights into cultural history – and artistic views into the distance.
