With its sunny slopes and deep valleys, the Taunus is a real favourite among walkers and nature lovers. You’ll never get bored here, surrounded by dense and light forests, meadows, fields and pastures. The Großer Feldberg is the largest mountain in the Taunus, standing at 880 metres and offering great views. There’s a range of cultural events to be enjoyed at Saalburg, the world’s only reconstructed Roman Fort and part of the Limes UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meanwhile, the Hessenpark Open-Air Museum provides an insight into the rural development of Hessen over the past 400 years.
