This is Frankfurt mit Kids

What should we do on the weekend? For this question you will find an answer on Frankfurt mit Kids. Everything here revolves around insider tips and excursion destinations for families in Frankfurt and surrounding. The person behind Frankfurt mit Kids – is Catrin Häusser, a mother of two boys (6 & 7 years old). Together they explore Frankfurt and the region and capture the best family destinations on the leisure platform Frankfurt mit Kids.


Admire giant giants in the Taunus

Did you know that there are two giant redwoods in Oberursel? You just have to be careful not to walk past it through the trees. 😊 The paths to these giant redwoods are level and easy to walk and are on very well developed so that that you can be on the move with all mobile pedestals. It is possible to keep distance even if it is a little bit fuller on the weekend. You can park free of charge directly on Forellengut Herzberger. Unfortunately a lot of navigation systems do not know the way right there. Therefore please enter “Furtweg 2-18, 61440 Oberursel (Taunus)” and follow to the signage „Forellengut“.

Turtles in Frankfurt cityforest

There are some ponds with turtles, ducks and geese, which you can discover together with your kids in the city forest. As an example you will find some of them in Kesselbruch or Jacobiweiher. But please take care of your fingers, because these can bite. How to get there: parking spot „Grastränke” or “Darmstädter Landstraße”. Public transportation: Tram 14, stop „Neu-Isenburg / Stadtgrenze“, Bus 963, station „Neu-Isenburg / Straßenbahn“.

Concentrated coolness in the skatepark in Frankfurt

We always go on excursions in the east of Frankfurt. First of all we will take a closer look at the bridge (Deutschherrnbrücke), about the greatest trains – from Intercity Express up to long freight trains. There the ships are sailing under the bridge – this is great for the kids for observing and discovering and where you can look at the skyline of Frankfurt. After that you can do a side trip to the playground on the skatepark. There are super long swings, slides, a footboll field and a basketball court (please do not forget your ball), climbing gears and trampolines. And kids from the age of 8 and up can burn off their energy on the skate park there with their BMX-bikes, skateboards or stunt-scooters. For your information: On the weekend it is always full of people, it is better during the week.
Address: Mayfahrtstraße, 60314 Frankfurt. Public transportation: Metroline U6 Haltestelle “Ostbahnhof”, Tram 11, station “Honsellstraße” or “Sonnemannstraße“
