    At the "Entrée" to Hohe Strasse in Bergen, the regional park route "Hohe Straße" meets the Frankfurt green belt. The place designed here honors this entrance situation: a place to sit, rest and see, a lounge under fruit trees. Some of them are old, 20 apple trees and cherry trees are newly planted.

    The High Street was already in the Middle Ages an important link between the fair cities of Frankfurt am Main and Leipzig and at the same time part of a "via regia", a road protected by the king, which reached from Kiev to Santiago de Compostella.

    This is where the Regional Park Route "Hohe Straße" and the Frankfurt Green Belt Bike Path meet.
    A nice place to sit, rest and see. From here, the views go far into the surrounding countryside. At the beautifully designed square, you will learn about the former trade routes on two steel panels and the typical regional park post.
    The High Road was already an important connection between the cities of Frankfurt am Main and Leipzig in the Middle Ages and at the same time part of the "Via Regia", a road protected by the king, which stretched from Kiev to Santiago de Compostela along its entire length.
    Individual traders, but also entire ethnic groups, pilgrims and army associations went through this path and brought goods, information, intelligence, but also acts of war.
    In 2004, the Regionalpark Rhein-Main-GmbH brought this historic part of the Hohe Straße to life again.
    The approximately 23-kilometer-long regional park route, which begins here at Frankfurt-Bergen and leads to Hammersbach, was expanded to include hiking and cycling. All in all, there are 14 stations for viewing artworks on this section.

    There are no city gates in our time, but this place can be felt as such:

    Be it that one has come through the city and is received here by the open landscape with the view of the eastern and south-eastern low mountain ranges; or you can cross the Via Regia and after the passage of this place, you will be picked up by the metropolis.

    Here you should always have time for a short rest and maybe the sculptures will encourage you to go on further (long-distance) tours.

    Even those who are on the green belt may take a break here after the sporting increase on the mountains-Enkheimer slope or before the rapid descent down to the Ried.

    Always a pleasure ... to cycle on this famous "old road"!
    Tip: It is not far from here to Büdingen and then past the former Celtic stronghold Glauberg to Stockheim (approx. 60 km). From there you can easily take the Nidder Valley Railway (the so-called Stockheimer Lieschen) back to Bad Vilbel.

    Entry to the Hohe Strasse.
    From here there are many possibilities to drive on asphalt paths towards Wetterau. On the way again and again beautiful views, breaks with and without art.

    The Way of St. James is based on the Via Regia of Fulda - Mainz - Trier and comes through the metropolis of Frankfurt.

    Very nice developed route for bike tours. If the weather is nice at the weekend, it can be full.

    The "Lausbaum" offers an opportunity to rest, even though they have reduced the seating here considerably. Another tree, 400 years old, further east: the waiting tree above Windecken, with more seating and information about the regional park route including installations.

    You have a wide view of the landscape. In contrast to the view of the metropolis, it looks like nature.
