Wildpark Alte Fasanerie Klein-Auheim

Reviewed By carolegth - Columbia, MD

This is one of the best wildlife centers I have ever visited. There are very large enclosures in interesting designs. The animals are noticeably content in their green and leafy environment. They were active and alert. The coats of the wild cats, for example, were shiny and lush. While not comprehensive in the variety of species, the quality of the enclosures made it exceptional. Some of the species includes buffalo, elk, wild cats, wild pigs, tree climbing raccoons, and an extensive bird collection. The park like setting in a wooded area adds to the enjoyment. Refreshments are available. A great place to spend a day in the outdoors.

Hanauer Wochenmarkt

Reviewed By Wolfgang P - Pattaya, Thailand

If you are in Hanau on a Wednesday or Saturday it's really recommended to visit the Open Air market right in the center town of Hanau at the Gebrüder Grimm Monument. If you come by car you will find parking space in the underground parking garage right under the market. The market is open from 9:00 am (or even earlier) up to 2:00 pm. Everything is VERY fresh. Many BIO Products available. Get impressed by the nice flowers, the fruit and vegetables or the food kiosks there. Fresh meat and cheese products, bakery, Pizza, etc. Everything is clean and hygienic.
It's just a MUST to see this market and having a snack while you are in Hanau.
For people who are looking for great bargains. Come just a few minutes before 2:00 pm. The sellers won't take the fresh fruit back home. They will sell it very cheap, especially when you buy more.
E.g.: Today they sold 1 pack (500 gr.) of strawberries for 2,95 €. When the market closed they offered 2 packs for 3 Euros and even cheaper (only 1 Euro per pack) when you buy 10 packs (5 Kilos).
Save up to 66% and get really fresh stuff. Isn't that a great deal? Huh?

Wilhelmsbad

Reviewed By KATZGERWestminster - WESTMINSTER

Wilhelmsbad was a former summer residence of the Prince of Hessen. His castle is just about 2.5 miles away "Schloss Philippsruhe", right on the Main river. Also an excellent place to visit with a museum and a lovely cafe overlooking the Main river. From there you can walk or ride a bike along the river to the next community, Maintal, with great restaurants typical of the State of Hesse.

Schloss Philippsruhe

Reviewed By Isaac E - London, United Kingdom

It is a Castle next to the beautiful River and very green surrounding . This attraction attracts lots of wedding parties and in a day several weeding reception takes place there. It has reasonable collection of paintings and a café. Is it strictly enforced of no pictures allowed to be taken inside the castle without proper authorization as I was asked by one of the staff to pay 5 euros if I want to take pictures. It is worth visiting as I was lucky enough to have met the Mayor who was smartly casually dressed on Jeans and tie There are parking and public transportation do serve the area..

Brothers Grim Monument

Reviewed By YTCHENG - Hong Kong, China

The statue, Brothers Grim Monument, was centrally located in town center. The statue was placed here to mark the birth of Grim in this little town. City hall was behind the statue while there were many shops, restaurants and cafes around. Visitors would find this place lively because of the new shopping malls around the area.

Fussballpark Hanau

Reviewed By Юлия К - Moscow, Russia

Фусбалпарк мы посетили в рамках экскурсии. Это такие поля для игры в футбол, которые хорошо оборудованы . И их можно снять, например для отдыха с друзьями, для любительских футбольных матчей, корпоративных мероприятий и детских праздников. Мы как раз попали на экскурсии в тот иомент, когда проходил день рождение мальчика, и они устроили любительский футбол, различные развлекательные мероприяти и угощения. Кстати, там продают потрясающе вкусную пиццу.
