Selters spring, wine, Großer Feldberg and pure adrenaline

A trip to the Taunus leads to a holiday paradise that never ceases to amaze with its fantastic variety of landscapes. Rich in cultural, natural and architectural highlights, the highest peaks of the Rhenish Slate Mountains tower over the southern regions - the main ridge of the Taunus. The northern part of the Taunus - the Hintertaunus - resembles a sea of hills.

Picturesque and sophisticated. Bordering the wine-growing areas of the Rheingau and the conurbations of the Rhine-Main lowlands, south-facing slopes are relatively densely populated. This region is home to several villages and towns that are known beyond the city limits for their picturesque parks, castles and villa districts. Some of these fashionable towns, such as Bad Homburg, Kronberg or Königstein, are now even part of the immediate surroundings of Frankfurt am Main. Wiesbaden, the capital of Hesse, is only about 30 kilometres from the west of the Main metropolis. This city also borders on the foothills of the Taunus. It is home to several thermal and mineral springs and was already settled by the Romans. For this reason, too, Wiesbaden made history as a spa town of the European aristocracy, which was even declared a world spa town at the beginning of the 20th century.

In general, it is the springs that are often mentioned in the same breath as the Taunus today. For example, Selters water, which today is synonymous with mineral water worldwide, rises in the Taunus. The source of this precious drink is in Niederselters, a town in the Hintertaunus region. Numerous healing springs line the spa towns of the low mountain range, each of which is even more charming than the others. Out of respect for the beauty of the natural landscapes here, numerous elevations in the mountain region have been placed under special protection as nature parks. The Hochtaunus Nature Park in particular, with its main ridge and the 878-metre-high Großer Feldberg as the highest elevation in the entire low mountain range, is a delight. This area from the Taunus is still famous for its still visible Upper Germanic-Raetian Limes, an official Unesco World Heritage Site since 2005. Today's Saalburg Castle was one of the main contributors to this reputation. This historic ensemble of castles, palaces and healing springs is surrounded by a multitude of breathtaking natural monuments. The twelve-metre high Eschbach Cliffs made of quartz are particularly popular with hikers.

Expansive views, breathtaking descents. At an altitude of 881 metres, it towers over the Taunus. The Großer Feldberg offers spectacular panoramic views and provides the perfect backdrop for a snapshot that no Taunus holidaymaker should miss. Especially in snowy winters, cross-country skiers and sledders feel magically drawn to the Feldberg. The climate around the mountain is pleasantly mild all year round. That's why the cycling and hiking trails are always busy. If you want to hike towards the unwooded plateau, you can't miss the paths at all. The telecommunications tower, which rises about 50 metres into the sky, is visible from afar. This transmission tower is complemented on the plateau of the Feldberg by three other towers, one of which can even be climbed. Especially when the sky is clear, this tower promises a spectacular panoramic view. In good weather, even the skyline of Frankfurt am Main appears on the horizon. In the other direction, the mountains of the Odenwald present themselves in all their glory. Some visitors swear that even the silhouette of Strasbourg can be glimpsed in the far distance. The counterpart to the viewing platform on the southern part of the summit is the Brunhildis Rock. This elevation made of quartzite sandstone surrounds the northern part of the plateau. The Brunhildis rock is the perfect excursion destination for all hikers who want to let their gaze wander as far as the Usinger Land.

Pure adrenaline at the bike park. Since 2015, the Große Feldberg has been home to a bike park. This paradise for adrenaline-loving bikers includes two downhill tracks that make their way from the plateau of the Feldberg. A special kind of sporting challenge is the Feldberg Run, which runs regularly from Oberursel-Hohemark to the Feldberg. Here, all those athletes who want to test their own limits on the ten-kilometre course get their money's worth.

Falkenhof: a heart for animals. The Falkenhof bird of prey sanctuary promises moments of animal beauty. Around 40 birds of prey live at this site on the Großer Feldberg, and they are the animal stars of regular flying displays. An important part of the bird of prey sanctuary is a falconry where injured birds and young birds that have fallen out of their nests are treated. The flight demonstrations take place daily at 2 pm.

Observatory and earthquake measurement. Less well-known, but no less impressive, is the Small Feldberg. The little brother of the Großer Feldberg resembles a pre-peak, around which a circular hiking trail leads. Unfortunately, the Kleine Feldberg cannot be accessed by the public. The freely accessible area in turn lacks vantage points. For this reason, the Taunus observatory located on the mountain with a meteorological station as well as earthquake measurement is also only visible from afar.

Bad Schwalbach is the district town in the Rheingau-Taunus district in southern Hesse. The town is one of Hesse's oldest spas and has been a recognised Kneipp spa since 2014. If you want to experience where the medicinal moor used to come from for the new treatment of spa guests at the turn of the century, you can take the spa train. The small railway with 600 millimetre gauge has been completely converted to passenger transport since 2005. The ride through the charming landscape park takes about half an hour. In fine weather, coffee and cake are served. The Taunus Wunderland is naturally more lively. The nature leisure park for families has a petting zoo, a large forest and rides for young and old. Hiking, castles and wine are the themes of the Rhine Trail, which follows the Middle Rhine and the northernmost part of the Upper Rhine for 320 kilometres.

Pets are often allowed. Those who want to explore the Taunus will find a large selection of flats and holiday homes. In quite a few cases, holidaymakers are even allowed to bring their pets. The best way to find out what the accommodation costs per night and what extras it offers is to talk directly to the landlord.
