The most important sections are the exhibition on the 1389 battle at Eschborn (Schlacht bei Eschborn), the Alemannic finds from the 4th and 5th centuries, and the collection of work from the painter Hanny Franke (1890–1973). There's also the option to take a walk from the H+ Hotel Eschborn to visit the Arboretum Main-Taunus, which is also in the south of Eschborn.

Frankfurt – the Römerberg and the old town
You can reach Frankfurt quickly from the H+ Hotel Eschborn, and the big city will draw you in with its many highlights. Frankfurt's partially destroyed historical centre has now been completely reconstructed after a long period of building work. Some of the city's main sights can be found right next to each other here: start at the Römerberg, the main square in the old town where you can find the town hall, the Old St. Nicholas Church and a beautifully reconstructed row of houses. Not far from there is Frankfurt Cathedral, the former election and coronation site of German emperors. There is an incredible view from the tower. St. Paul's Church, with its important history, and the Goethe House, the birthplace of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, are also worth visiting in the old town.
Frankfurt – the Museumsufer
For fans of culture and art, the Museumsufer in Frankfurt (a collection of museums along the river banks) is a very special place. Along the banks of the Main, there are 26 museums on all sorts of different topics: design, history, architecture, film, football, literature and art of all periods. The idea of 'art for all' ('Kunst für Alle') from the late 1970s has turned into a cultural and urban ensemble of museums of international importance today. A further 12 museums in the city – including the Senckenberg Natural History Museum and the Money Museum – also belong to the umbrella group of the Museumsufer Frankfurt. Find out about combo tickets or discounts – for example, on the last Saturday of the month entry is free for many museums – and enjoy the wide range on offer!
Taunus - hiking and exploring
To the north of the H+ Hotel Eschborn, you'll find the Taunus mountains. This low mountain range invites you to do beautiful hikes through a picturesque landscape. The highest point in the Taunus range is the Großer Feldberg, reaching 879 metres. So lace up your boots and get exploring the extensive network of hiking paths. On the Großer Feldberg there is also an observation tower where you can look out over the whole surrounding area, including to Frankfurt. In 2005, the remains of the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes were designated a World Heritage Site. These Roman fortifications can still be seen in many places today, and the Saalburg fort, to the north of Bad Homburg, is regarded the most complete reconstructed Roman fort in the region.
The Taunus – wine villages and charming old towns
The picturesque villages and small towns in the Taunus are worth exploring on their own. In many cases, the old towns or historic village centres have been preserved and are sure to impress with their delightful half-timbered houses. Wander through Idstein, Eppstein, Königstein, Kronberg, Oberursel, Bad Homburg, Hasselbach and many more. Wine growing also enjoys a long tradition in this region, so you'll also find charming restaurants or inns in each place where you can enjoy a fruity wine or a genuine glass of Hessian Äppelwoi (a type of apple wine). The Hessenpark, an open-air museum dedicated to everyday village life and traditional culture, also gives you a good impression of historical life in the Taunus region.» Continue to Locations & Surroundings
