Regional Information - Hotspots in the Center

The region around Frankfurt/Main is well known for its historic castles and villages. Hop on a boat and take a romantic river cruise on the Rhine from the old Roman town of Koblenz, passing the legendary Loreley to Bingen and Ruedesheim and see the castle's ruins on the shores where brave knights once fought for their glory. The Upper Middle Rhine Valley was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2002. Find cozy guesthouses and enjoy the rural landscape which is dominated by apple plantations and vineyards. Taste the famous "Aebblewoi", a fruity apple cider which has its connoisseurs allover the world.
On the way to Darmstadt in the south, the original Frankenstein castle is worth a stop. In 1816, Mary Shelley was probably inspired to write her famous novel "Frankenstein" by a visit to this castle with its many myths and legends. Enjoy the frightful shivers on Halloween at the professional monster show.
Darmstadt itself offers the "Waldspirale" House, an architectural pearl built by the famous Austrian architect and painter Hundertwasser.
