Get back to nature in Germany

Get back to nature in Germany


Mar 28, 2012

Germany's cities are renowned throughout Europe for blending traditional and modern architecture. Frankfurt in particular is a prime example of the elegance of German engineering and futurism. However, visitors taking a car hire in Germany can learn more about the city's respect for nature during Wäldchestag, or Day of the Forest.

The event actually takes place across four days following the Catholic celebration of Pentecost, with the Day of the Forest itself held on the Tuesday. Shops across the city close early and families gather in the lush green Frankfurt City Forest. The event has been an integral part of the culture and history of the city for centuries, offering visitors taking a car hire in Frankfurt a glimpse at this fascinating tradition.

Guests attending the event can enjoy fairground rides such as wurlitzers and roller coasters, sample authentic German foods and snacks, and listen to traditional carnival music. Wäldchestag is an ideal way for tourists to explore the history of this remarkable city during their motoring holiday in Germany.

Travellers may wish to arrive early, as parking can become crowded quite quickly. Frankfurt City Park can be reached via Highway 66, a short drive from the city's trendy Bockenheim neighbourhood.
