In the summer there’s almost nothing that keeps us from spending our time outside. Swimming, cycling or other activities all day long and simply letting the day fade away.
FrankfurtRheinMain offers various possibilities where you can enjoy yourself or invite some friends – with music or in natural silence. Discover our collection of top spots to spend your summer days or evenings at. Vacation feeling & great sunsets included!
Signal lamps, switches and passing trains are the backdrop of the Weststadtcafé. Admittedly the place might be quite a bit unusual, but this is exactly the charm of this extraordinary location right in the centre of the urban life. In the light and simple atmosphere of a former railway carriage depot, Darmstadt’s mild summer evenings can now be enjoyed in the seventh year from April to September. A simple, clear gastronomy concept consisting of two bars, one of them outdoors and the other in the almost completely openable interior, creates a metropolitan ambience. Here you can buy your drinks while you can bring your own steak, sausages or vegetables and use one of the barbecues to make you dinner. Enjoy the warm temperatures, the cool drinks, the reunion and the unique atmosphere of the Weststadtcafé. Also the train drivers are happy that they are no longer completely alone in the dark night between Darmstadt and Frankfurt and honk happily to the café visitors.

What beer is like elsewhere in FrankfurtRheinMain are the wines – and where better to enjoy them than in a lounge in Eltville am Rhein? Exactly, nowhere 😉 The wine lounge 1141 in the estate park was built in 2016 on the grounds of the Draiser Hof and offers not only wines from the family-owned winery but also a permanent offer of small meals and homemade cakes – the perfect place for a summer weekend excursion !
