    So much for Goetheruh:

    "Two small viewing hills are hidden in the forest to the north of the Goethe Tower. The larger viewing hill is known as the Goetheruh. Whether Goethe rested here is not documented. In the run-up to the rather "loud" Goethe Tower, a quieter counterpart was reactivated here in 1999, which offers a tranquil view allowed on the city."

    Well, that's a real anticipation for Sächsenhäuser and Neu Isenburg people: our beloved Goethe Tower is starting to shine in new splendor. Here is the current information from the FR from July 9th, 2020: fr.de/frankfurt/frankfurt-goetheturm-wird-juli-schon-haben-13826586.html
    "Frankfurt: the date is fixed - the Goetheturm will be in place this summer" :-)

    The Goetheturm was a 43.3 meter high observation tower in Frankfurt's city forest, built entirely of wood in 1931. The tower named after Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was destroyed by arson in October 2017. Reconstruction is complete and it will reopen in October 2020.

    The easy way to get there: up Hainer Weg, turn left at the white sign at the top, straight ahead and follow the signs at the beginning of the forest.
    I'm looking forward to the new tower.

    Unfortunately, the tower is temporarily closed. Note opening hours. As a Black Forest fan, I find that pretty weak...

    The construction progress during the reconstruction of the Goethe Tower can be clearly seen.
    At the kiosk there was also an "out of home sale" of drinks and snacks.

    It's finally back: the old new Goethe Tower. At his feet a good pub for Hessian cuisine (and drinks)

    De Godetorm. A must for Frankfurters and those who want to become one. Nice playground for small children.

    It is there despite the burned Goetheturms a nice place to stay (coffee and cake)

    Very nice garden management, especially when the Goetheturm is up again. However, the earlier patio furniture had a lot more charm.

    In the restaurant next to the Götheturm there is the famous "Frankfurter Soss", so go and enjoy.
