Main River Bicycle Route
One of the best things Frankfurt has to offer is it’s surroundings, so if you’re looking to make the most out of the city on the weekends we suggest you grab a bike and enjoy one of it’s many nearby cycling routes.
What started off for us as a morning bike ride along the Main river from Frankfurt’s Sachsenhausen neighbourood, ended up as a 27km trip to the neighbouring city of Hanau, two and a half hours later. The entire route runs along the south side of the Main river. As soon as you leave Frankfurt and Offenbach behind, you start passing through endless green lawns and small villages, a sheer delight. If you get hungry along the way, there are many spots perfect for a for picnic, as well as a couple of beer gardens with lovely views to the river.
Once you reach Hanau, if you’re feeling tired you have the option to grab the train at the Hanau Hauptbahnhof for a 20 minute ride back to Frankfurt, or if you want to carry on you can continue along the river to the old town of Aschaffenburg, a further 18km away.
Overall a great riverside bike route around Frankfurt am Main!
