Sports & Recreation

Fit and fresh

Whether you are a professional or recreational athlete, the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region has something for sporting enthusiasts of every skill level and age group. Play a round of golf at one of the region’s many first-class golf courses, explore the scenic countryside with a hike through the Rheingau or Hochtaunus, cycle through the forests of the Odenwald or head off on a canoe trip on the Lahn, Nidda, Main or Rhine – the choices available to you are seemingly endless. The region also hosts a number of large-scale sports events, including a number of full marathons, the Frankfurt IRONMAN, professional football matches and equestrian events. Those who prefer less action and more relaxation have numerous spa resorts at hand for regeneration and a bit of pampering.
