Travel to Frankfurt Germany
  1. Grüneburg park
  • This park has not only beauty but history
  • In the 1700s this was purely a park for a castle then skip to the 1800s. The Rothschilds bought this and had built an enormous mansion-like palace. Under the Nazi regime Albert (particular Rothschild) had to give up the home and it was later destroyed in an air raid in 1944
  • I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy this park, there are many trees and lots of space for numerous activities to please yourself

  • If you aren’t familiar with Goethe, now is your time to shine. Get in here and learn about a fascinating character in history
  • I’m sure you heard about the story where a man sells his soul to the devil, well guess who formed that story? Goethe created this story which was originally a play called Faust

Wonderful trees
  1. Pinkelbaum (Peeing Tree)
  • I could not believe how cool something so seemingly primitive is. This is a peeing tree, that’s right, a peeing tree!
