There are a lot of little gems in Germany that don’t make the travel guides — Eschborn is one of those gems. Tourists looking for nature are going to find the area breathtaking.
For more nature, there are three parks — the Kirchwiesen, Oberwiesen and Unterwiesen. Bikers and walkers are going to find these parks, which are along the flowing stream, Westerbach, to be both relaxing and beautiful.
Those who haven’t had their fill of green should visit the arboretum right outside of the town. With over 600 different species of trees both native to the area and from all corners of the globe, the area will definitely give you a breath of fresh air.
Most towns of this size don’t have impressive city museums, but in Eschborn, there is a lot to see, including artifacts from graves dated from the 4th century and paintings from Hanny Franke, a German painter who lived in the town and painted pictures of nature in the area.
Those looking for a bit of kitsch should not miss the giant stool. Just missing the world record size of 27 meters, this 25 meter high chair is the largest in Germany. Painted a bright red, you won’t be able to miss it.
Do you want to see the true colors of this city? Then plan a visit during one of the many festivals. There are at least six regular festivals in Eschborn — the Frühlingsfest (Spring Festival), Eschenfest, Niederhöchstädter Markt, the Wiesenfest, the Summer Festival, and the Christmas Festival. Phew!
You haven’t seen Germany unless you have been to a football/soccer game. A game featuring the 1. FC Eschborn is a good choice. They aren’t in the highest league (or even close to it), but you will find that sitting back and cheering for the home team is still a great way to spend an afternoon on the weekend.
