In the south of Hesse, the Offenbach District has the River Main as its northern border and also butts on to the state of Bavaria. Although a very urbanized area, it is still filled with heavily wooded forests, mainly of oak — the state tree.

Cities, Towns & Villages in the Offenbach District
Many of the main towns are in one place towards the cities of Frankfurt am Main and Offenbach am Main on the northern edge. The smaller towns and villages are then strewn across the district amongst streams and woodland.
The town of Seligenstadt is thought to be one of the oldest in Germany, and has an amazingly ornate basilica within its center.
The area around Rodgau has some of the driest and mildest of climates. Locals are often found sitting outside playing chess or boules in town squares — a great place to relax.
And do visit Neu-Isenburg for the complete opposite. This town is on the flightpath for the 2nd largest airport after Heathrow — the Frankfurt International Airport [FRA]. It is filled with hotels, roads and a huge regional shopping center.
The choice is yours! ;-)
