Frankfurt, Germany

Main River Path East to Hanau

Google Street View

In addition to our central Main River route in Frankfurt, it’s possible to take an even longer run, adding as much as 15 km east to Hanau. A multi-use path runs along the south bank of the river, almost continuously from Frankfurt to Hanau. One fun option: run one-way to Hanau and take the train back (Hanau West or Steinheim)

Our route starts at Carl-Ulrich-Brücke, about 5 km east of central Frankfurt (see our central Main River route to run from central Frankfurt). Just follow the path along the water — the terrain alternates between water views and some more wooded sections, becoming quite pastoral.  Below are some distances and highlights, from Carl-Ulrich-Brücke:
