Hike: Monks of the Wetterau

For an easy hike across some of the nicer farmland north of Frankfurt, there is the Monastery of Ilbenstadt. The monastery complex is mostly preserved and features a remarkable late Staufen Romanesque church and a Rococo gatehouse, hinting at the centuries of prosperity enjoyed by the monks here. Behind the monastery is a nicely preserved agricultural complex from the 19th century.

How to Get Here:

  • The hike starts at the station in Nieder-Wöllstadt and ends in the town of Assenheim, both are commuter districts of Frankfurt.
