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:
3 km: Bürgel Sports Complex
3.8 km: Arthur-von-Weinberg-Steg — Pedestrian Bridge to paths on North Bank
7 km: Rumpenheimer Schloss: Castle park & estate. Do a loop around the park!
11 km: Nachenhafen Dietesheim. Walking & hiking area
15 km: Steinheimer Brücke – bridge to cross into Hanau
- Up to 15 km from Carl-Ulrich-Brücke to Hanau. From central Frankfurt, add another 5 km
- Carl-Ulrich-Brücke, 5 km east of central Frankfurt
- If taking the train back from Hanau, can use Hanau West or Steinheim
