Where the River Main shows itself from its most serpentine side
Offenbach is located along the most beautiful parts of the River Main. The city boasts imposing industrial relics, historical monuments and a varied art and cultural scene. The Klingspor Museum Offenbach of International Book Art, Typography and Calligraphy and the German Leather Museum, for example, are both internationally renowned. The Offenbach Weather Park, which uniquely illustrates climate phenomena from lightning to tornadoes, is also well worth the visit. The Capitol Theatre with its domed roof is the perfect place for culture-vultures, while night owls are sure to enjoy the club scene along the River Main at the "Robert Johnson" nightclub, the "Hafen 2" cultural centre or the "Waggon" concert venue.
