This year I have started hiking in the nearby forest and Taunus mountain range. I have lived here for all my life and I have to admit that I have missed some of the most beautiful viewpoints and sights.
If you stay in Frankfurt for a couple of days and the weather is fine you might want to visit some of the places from the list below.
Most places can be reached from Oberursel, Hohemark (U-Bahn U3 Hohemark). Since the Taunus forrest is a commercial forrest you don´t need special trekking boots or other equipment since most trails are prepared for vehicles.
Some of the sights I have visited so far:
- Großer Feldberg
- Brunhildisfelsen (Großer Feldberg)
- Altkönig / Celtic ringwalls
- Heidetränk Oppidum (Celtic town)
- Sandplacken (pass)
- Kleinkastell “Altes Jagdhaus”
- Weiße Mauer
- Obeliskenschneise / Obelisk
- Gilboa Tempel
- Bleibeskopf / Ringwall
- Herzberg / Herzbergturm
