Highlights: Major Events

Frühlings Dippemess

Henninger Rennen

If you're around the Henning brewery, you can't miss this annual bicycle race, which begins and ends at the brewers. A semi classic cycle race, the "Rund um den Henninger-Turm" (Around the Henninger Tower), takes in Frankfurt and the Taunus Mountains which includes several steep climbs. It starts and finishes at Darmstadter Landstrasse outside the Henninger Tower.

The range of open-air attractions includes stages for music and drama, exhibition stands, fun activities, a jazz garden and games for the children.


Frankfurt Jazz Festival

1 - 31 October

The Frankfurt Jazz Festival is relatively small but durable, with a long and faithful. Members of the "Jazzensemble" who performed in the original 1953 event keep the traditional strand alive while new artists push the boundaries and keep the festival funky.

Possibly the biggest such event in the world, and definitely the biggest in Germany, thousands of publishers, authors and vendors turn up for this event.

Thousands of participants come from around the Continent to take part in the race through the streets of Frankfurt


Frankfurt Christmas Fair
