Rodgau in Hesse is just what you need when you are in no hurry to move on but are intent on relaxing and rejuvenating the inner you.
Take long walks amid pastoral scenes, read a good book (have you done the latest booker yet? It’s said to be good.) with a latte for company seated at a wayside cafe that offers great street scenes when you feel like looking up, or bike along wooded paths to get close to nature. Whatever you feel like doing is what Rodgau has to offer.
