Enjoy the following 6 parts:

1. On a speed date with Frankfurt – A city with ups and downs

Wealth in the skyscrapers towering above, poverty on the streets below. In the often-overlooked metropolis sitting on the River Main, opposites collide. We rode our ebikes through the city your parents warned you about – and were out of the urban canyons and onto the trails in just 30 minutes. A perfect city escape!

Frankfurt am Main, or FFM, is one of the most productive and dynamic cities in Europe. More than 750,000 people live in Germany’s fifth-largest city, up from 680,000 in 2010. The European financial capital is reportedly growing by 18 residents per day – upwards. A whole 31 tower blocks more than 100 metres tall rise into the sky, creating a skyline that is unique in Germany and, depending on the perspective, could easily remind you of Manhattan.

But even with so much concrete and steel, the city has remained green. In fact, at the beginning of the nineties, it was enshrined in law that Frankfurt’s green belt must be protected and improved over the long term. More than a third of the city’s area is open space such as forests, meadows and farmland, which are important for its residents’ quality of life as well as being essential for a good urban climate. Even approved bike parks can be reached relatively quickly by ebike or public transport. Trails with long descents that end in tranquil villages await to the north of Frankfurt, where the city is so close and yet so far away.

Admittedly, we didn’t always think Frankfurt was cool. At first glance, it seems grey, overwhelming and dangerous. But at second glance, the city, which is open to everything and anything new, surprises with an incredibly diverse cultural offering, great people and an atmosphere that can’t help but sweep you along. Everyone in FFM seems to have ideas, projects and goals, and be on the path to realising them. If you compare this city with other European metropolises such as Barcelona, Berlin or Paris, you quickly realise, that no one comes here to explore the club culture at the weekend. Students certainly aren’t looking for the laid back Erasmus life. Nor is anyone looking to lay low and kick back. Everyone wants to take off and fly high. There’s definitely a lot cooking here!

Even the expensive housing can’t stop people from settling in this relatively small city. This isn’t just because of its justified hype but also due to Frankfurt’s prospering economy. According to the annual report of the Frankfurt Economic Development Agency, the number of jobs is growing faster than its inhabitants. And of course, FFM is growing increasingly multilingual – around half its residents have their roots abroad. Around 90 % of the world’s 194 countries are represented, with most newcomers coming from Turkey, followed by Croatia, Italy and Poland. And as in all cosmopolitan cities, this diversity is an important reason why the city thrives and inspires.

Anyone wanting to get from A to B in Europe often only gets there via FFM: thanks to its central location in the heart of Europe, the city is a key hub in the European transport network. This manifests itself not only in Frankfurt Kreuz, the main railway station, but more so in one of the largest airports in the world which, without Corona, turns over more than 70 million people a year and can be reached from the city centre very quickly. Even the internet has to pass through Frankfurt on its way around the world, because with the headquarters of the DE-CIX located here, FFM is one of the largest and most important internet exchanges. A whole 10 terabytes per second pass through here, day in, day out.

The most diverse concepts of life, origins, views, outlooks, careers, incomes, expenditures and goals are amalgamated and celebrated on a few square kilometres in the city on the River Main. A city that you may only fall in love with on second or third try, because of its many ups and downs. Over the next few pages, we’ve arranged a speed date with Frankfurt, its trails, people and restaurants.

2. I roll with the best – From the kerb to the skyline

If you don’t feel like the dizzying heights of Frankfurt’s buildings, it’s best to explore the city at ground level. A bike tour along the River Main is a great way to get to know some of the city’s most important spots and historical landmarks. We explored the city by bike, covering everything from the curb to the skyline.

Meeting point: Westhafen Tower, Skyline Plaza, Frankfurt. Here, not far from the main station, we start our tour, following the green strip along the River Main that divides the city in two. We pass the countless meadows along the banks, where the holiday feeling mixes with a leisure-time attitude. Whether they’re coming from university, in the middle of a city trip or between meetings, everyone comes here during their lunch break, takes off their shoes and takes a break. Often with a cider, affectionately called Äppler, in one hand and a bite to eat from one of the food trucks in the other. A few fresh-faced stand-up paddleboarders wobble their way downstream. Every now and then, a boat sails by. Ducks quack and a few guys from a stag do shout heartily, inviting us to join them. This is where lunch breaks are spent, weekends are initiated, sunsets are enjoyed and dates are arranged.

We shift down a gear and dismount in the old town, by the Römer. We push our bikes through a labyrinth of buildings and monuments that lead us through the epochs of German history. At the central square of the historic town centre, the Römerberg, we briefly take one or two photos for our grandparents, to whom we had accidentally sent a few impressions from the red light district the night before. We roll past Frankfurt’s Römer, the historic town hall and a key landmark in the city, before asking which house Goethe, Telemann and Schopenhauer lived in. The world’s newest old town was largely destroyed during the Second World War, but has been brought back to life thanks to elaborate restoration projects.

If you’re in the mood for art and museums, you should cross the Old Bridge to the other side of the river. On the opposite side of the Mainkai, Frankfurt’s Museumsufer stands in contrast to the fast-paced life of the city centre. Here you’ll find 15 museums, most of them of international significance, including the German Film Institute & Film Museum, the German Architecture Museum and the Museum of Applied Art. Lock up your bike, throw your scarf over your shoulder, put on your metal-rimmed specs and dive into high culture before heading back to the Bahnhofsviertel for a beer or two later tonight.

After a round of cider and wraps, we stop by the skate park in Westhafen near the European Central Bank (ECB). Cool kids with nerves (and bones) of steel, show us how to defy the rules of gravity. We exuberantly drop into the skate bowl on our ebikes and feel at least 10 years younger – energy expended, the second go feels 19 years harder.

At the sight of the skyline, we switch into Turbo mode, leave the greenery, roll past the Zeil shopping street towards the dazzling grey banking district. Numerous financial institutions, such as the ECB, Deutsche Bundesbank and Commerzbank, rise above the busy streets in Frankfurt’s city centre. The many skyscrapers, which are among the largest in Europe, are not only home to international banks, but also give the city nicknames like “Mainhattan” or “Bankfurt”. We briefly head all the way up to 200 m in the Main Tower to look over the city and over the shoulders of the bankers in the buildings opposite.

In the shadow of these skyscrapers lies the Bahnhofsviertel. A district where you will never stand out, no matter how much you try. Despite attempts to gentrify, with hip clubs, flats, cool restaurants and cafés, the original atmosphere isn’t so easily gotten rid of. Pound shops, brothels, sex shops and pubs as well as junkies and homeless people characterise the streets around here. We pass by people who cook substances on spoons, share syringes and squeeze. The sight of the one-sided relationship with drugs, which often don’t even have a name, stands in stark juxtaposition to the glittering glass towers of the banks. Whoever comes to this city should be aware that sooner or later, they will be confronted with aluminium foil, bloody syringes, the smell of urine and dazed junkies lying at the feet of the banks. “This isn’t your Berlin or Munich, this is Frankfurt!” we hear a toothless, shoeless junkie shouting on the pavement. There’s something in the air here, that could go up at the slightest spark. Even the police seem to stay out of this neighbourhood – at least we never see them. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, hip spots are flourishing in one of Germany’s most crime-ridden spots, attracting young Frankfurt students to the bars and leaving tourists speechless. We grab a couple of drinks from a Kultspäti, aka off-licence, called Yokyok and listen to the bustling city.

A few corners further on, we hear a bar with punk music screaming out of the open windows on the 1st floor. Our photographer is immediately “all-in” for the music, and we’re “all-in” for another Äppler. So we pass the elegant marble tables of the Yaldy Bar, which seductively invites you to the ground floor, and go up a level, diving into a world long forgotten by many. Without ordering, we get Äppler put in front of us. “You’re lucky! Normally I don’t open for another half an hour.” Andy Backer is the owner and current bartender of the St. Tropez Bar and we immediately like him. The confetti and cold smoke in the air tell us, that people come here to party. But much more interesting is that Andy is a former hooligan and founder of the, somewhat logically named clothing brand, Hooligan. His pub is the second oldest tavern on the street and home to Frankfurt’s football fans. We get straight into reminiscing, talking about old times. Liverpool is his favourite club, behind Frankfurt of course! His eyes sparkle as he talks about broken noses and strong friendships, stand-up guys in Russian gangs and bus trips to Porto with S.L. Benfica fans. In his stories, the pre-match gaming features heavily. For half an hour, we too are hooligans, until the Äppler is empty and the streets of Frankfurt welcome us back with open arms.

We pedal onward once more… and right into the Porsche parked on the cycle path. With a few new bicycle lanes in the city centre, Frankfurt is trying to paint itself as bicycle-friendly. While the infrastructure might not be widely developed yet, if you see red beneath you, you’re on the right track. We end the evening without our bikes, but with our very last Äppler at the hotel.

3. This place is on fire! – Frankfurt delivers!

Frankfurt steps on the gas where others have already started braking. We have rarely experienced a city that is so hungry and determined. Everyone starts something here, pulls through and delivers. Is it because of the banks? We met with a wide variety of people to find out what drives this city.

There is something that almost everyone in Frankfurt has in common: Turbo mode. This is where decisions are made and turned into reality. Now and here! “You won’t get far here with a Berlin attitude. This is not a city where you meet for a coffee – come back when you want to get started on something!” one of the city’s many movers and shakers tells us in confidence, rounding it off by saying “Frankfurt isn’t waiting for you!” In the background, Porsches and Ferraris roar, other cars honk and as the noise echoes between the towers, people in suits hurry over red pedestrian crossings.

Find someone to unlock the city for you and get started! – Florian Jöckel

The city rarely stands still. Even during coronavirus, an old print shop in Frankfurt’s city centre secretly became one of the hottest spots in the city: the Massif Central. A café, which is a bar, office building, event location and bicycle repair shop all in one. The owner is none other than Florian Jöckel, music manager and president of the Frankfurt cycling community Guilty76. He “unlocked” the door for us and explains Frankfurt to us.

On the 220 square metre ground floor, Florian leads us past huge graffiti on the floor and Tour de France winner jerseys on the wall to the Tipp-Kick table, where we drink our first beer from a champagne bottle. Behind us, in a small fenced-in bicycle workshop, two guys are working on an old bike. Relaxed tracks play over the sound system, the bartenders fire off inside jokes at each other and the guests outside enjoy the last rays of sunshine.

There’s a lot of work here – but you have to be able to do something.- Florian Jöckel

Massif Central calls itself a barrier-free bar. Symbolic of Frankfurt, everyone is welcome here, whether student, CEO or Countess of Hesse. The city doesn’t seem to care who you are, only what you make of it. Florian tells us about local politicians who meet rappers, who sit next to football players, who sign autographs for people who are just dropping off their bikes to be repaired. Here, people get to know each other through doing, Florian tells us as he leads us to the second floor of the building. Sports photographer Isaak Papadopoulos has his studio here, podcaster Basti Red broadcasts in the next room and there is a pop-up kitchen that you can rent. In the next room, tattoo artist Chris from Anti Tattoo is working on his latest piece of work and from time to time they all play billiards together. It’s also the de facto HQ of Guilty76, a well-known cycling club in the racing scene, whose members are among the biggest cycling fans in the world and regularly make it onto TV with their guerrilla activities. Liquid equipment worth more than € 10,000 is stored in the cellar – at least that’s how much the buckets of paint used for the colourful street paintings during the Tour de France cost. We drink another rosé, which you’ll only be able to buy here and in a small village in France, before Florian has to leave for a meeting. EUROBIKE need his help. As he leaves, he calls out to us,

Frankfurt is a city you have to know. Otherwise, it sucks!

Time and again we stumble across the slogan “Frankfurt stays stable.” Representatives of this motto are not only the heavyset bouncer in front of the brothel doors in Taunusstraße but also the watches from family-owned company Sinn, which have been manufactured in the city for over 60 years. In 1999, the company revealed its tribute to the city with its “Finanzplatz” watch collection, whose design is simple and classically elegant. “Sinn watches aren’t watches, they’re measuring instruments.” says the likeable Simone Richter, a representative of the company. During a short tour of the factory, we learn how the brand works with emergency doctors, divers, pilots, racing drivers and the fire brigade to design the right watches for each area. It quickly becomes apparent that the Sinn watches, as purpose-built measuring devices, embody Frankfurt’s credo – they think big too and don’t do anything by half measures. The high-precision constructions with a 1,000 m water resistance rating and cases made from German submarine steel speak for themselves and don’t need any sponsored celebrities to promote them.

Later, we make one last stop and visit Patrick Sauter. He is in his mid-30s, buddy, co-owner and founder of Mellow Motorcycles, racer, former editor-in-chief of the motorbike magazine Mo and somehow always on top of everything that’s going on. He also moved to Frankfurt not too long ago. When we ask him why, we get the answer we had somehow already expected: for him, the city is the perfect environment if you want to step on the gas. But you have to bring something with you to belong. Patrick has brought more than 150 bikes and may soon open his third store. Mellow Bikes build unique custom motorbikes, race bikes as well as producing handmade metal and leather parts.

You can fly anywhere directly from Frankfurt. It’s 8 hours to New York, 11 hours to Tokyo. By car, it’s 4 hours to Berlin and 3 hours to Paris. Frankfurt, business as usual. So if you’re done pitching projects and drinking organic rose petals in Berlin, you can come to Frankfurt and just get going. But don’t you dare look down on us from above while we’re doing wheelies on Taunusstrasse and waving at people!

4. Biking not banking – Where to chill out in Frankfurt

Anyone who thinks Frankfurt can only print money or be permanently in the fast lane is wrong. If the city centre and its glass-clad banks are too much for you, you can find an official singletrack network to the north of the city at an altitude of over 800 metres that is second to none.

8 a.m. We ring the bell at a door marked “Work”. Supposedly this is the right address, should we be looking for someone to show us Frankfurt’s hidden trails. Of course, we’ve let them know in advance that we’re coming. At the second ring, the door opens. We are greeted casually by someone with a fist bump, whose clothes give away his hobby straight away. That must be our man Max! He gives us a brief tour of his office, introduces us to the other people in the ARTUS agency team and quickly sends one last email while the coffee brews. Maximilian von Götz is a freelancer and does a pretty interesting job together with ARTUS, but we’re much more interested in something else right now. From here directly onto the trails by bike. Is that possible? It is! But since time is money in Frankfurt on Friday, we quickly push the bikes into the car to be at the Feldberg in the Taunus in 30 minutes.

Max is a local here. For many years, this has been his retreat in his free time. Relaxed, we pedal our Haibikes AllMtn SE in Tour mode up the forest road. A few deer peek curiously through the undergrowth. The view gets better and better with every turn of the pedals. Trails are visible here and there. “We can’t do them all today,” Max answers the unasked question. He wants to show us two very specific trails to demonstrate the calibre of what is available. Unfortunately, we can’t track them on our GPS – they’re not yet official and, as in many places, land access is a potentially delicate matter.

Max stops at a clearing. We feel as though we belong to the initiated few. We look around before diving down the trail. Countless left-right turns through newly built berms follow in quick succession. We jump over rock gardens, chase along narrow singletrail and send small natural drops. We stop at a crossing. Our hands are shaking – arm pump. Wow, we were expecting a lot less action! Max looks over his shoulder and laughs. He gestures at the city from above while we recover. We think it’s time to head back up but behind the felled trees not far from us, the trail actually goes even further.

With the ebike, I often ask myself, ‘Which trail haven’t I ridden today? – Maximilian von Götz

Zigzag. Drop. Rocks. Awesome! The trail becomes more and more varied and seems to become more broken in. According to Max, there are a lot of people here who only climb halfway up the descent with an analogue bike. “I used to ask myself, ‘Which trail can I ride today?’” Max tells us. “With the ebike, I often ask myself, ‘Which trail haven’t I ridden today?’” And so we go up for another round but take a different turn: awesome again, more than 5 min downhill again, arm pump again.

Here on the Feldberg there are countless unofficial trails, most of which are easy to find on Komoot. According to Max, at least 20 of them are really good! But even on the mountain’s legal singletrails, some of which are up to 3.6 km long, bikers of all skill levels get their money’s worth and will find a good amount of flow. These routes are more predictable and easier to ride than on the rest of the mountain, with signposting similar to ski slopes to guide you through bends, drops and tables.

We roll out of the forest into nearby Kronberg am Taunus, only to drink our first Äppler of the day and try a few local specialties in the nearest restaurant. We chat with Max about life and enjoy the calm before the storm, heading back to Frankfurt’s city centre. Of course, normally Max rides the 800 m ascent at least twice more. No problem with the ebike, but today isn’t a Sunday. Work calls. Thank you, Max!

We spent two brilliant nights at the infamous Roomers, in the middle of Frankfurt. It’s an incredibly well-equipped hotel with a friendly team and vodka to welcome you! But we also didn’t miss the chance to escape back in time to a cult era, following James Last, the German national team of the 1970s and Playboy, to the Odenwald. 1 hour south of Frankfurt, you can enjoy the concentrated flair of the flower power era at the Parkhotel 1970. By the way, the reopened hotel is almost completely original: most furniture, carpets and curtains have been standing, lying and hanging here for over 50 years. Not to worry though, it has all the mod-cons you need. And don’t forget to pack your bike! Near the hotel, in Michelstadt, a few flowing singletrails await.

Haibike AllMtn SE

Specially selected components are used across the Haibike AllMtn SE, the special edition of the Haibike AllMtn, released to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Haibike ePerformance. From the beefy full carbon frame, to the capable Öhlins suspension, to the high-tech SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS drivetrain, no expense or effort has been spared. But the Haibike AllMtn SE is more than just the sum of its parts. Ten years of ebike experience, pioneering work and innovation have combined to create a unique bike. With its overwhelming power from the powerful Yamaha PW-X2 motor and plenty of traction, it skillfully ascends the most difficult climbs, before capitalising on your efforts by rewarding you with an exhilarating downhill experience with plenty of style.

Haibike Trekking 9

The Haibike Trekking 9 brings a beach cruiser feel to the city centre. With its curved top tube, the frame is reminiscent of the cruisers so often found on the Californian coast. The cleverly rotated Bosch Performance Line CX motor not only gives the bike its distinctive look but also allows the 625 Wh battery to be positioned low in the down tube. The resulting low centre of gravity gives the Haibike Trekking 9 a super stable ride that invites you to cruise through the city. It carves through sweeping curves in the park with plenty of control and makes full use of the width of the voluminous Continental Contact Cruiser tyres. If the sun sets on a longer trip, you can rely on the distinctive Skybeamer lamp to light your way back home.
