AS OLIVIER GIVAUDAN HAS VOLUNTEERED TO LEAD THE HIKE (WHICH I UNFORTUNATELY MISSED BEFORE POSTPONING IT), i WILL REINSTATE IT NOW. PLEASE RECONFIRM ATTENDANCE.

Believe it or not, but there is a "Green Belt" surrounding the city of Frankfurt, through which a hiking trail runs called the "Grüngürtel - Rundwanderweg". The city of Frankfurt has created the GrünGürtel-Tier, as the "Gürteltier" (the armadillo) was found as a fitting mascot, and featured in various spots along the trail and in picture 2.

Picture 1 shows the whole loop trail, which is a 3 day hike.

Act 1 goes from U-Bahnstation Ostbahnhof (U 6) to U-Bahnstation Kalbach (U 8), from where one could return to Ostbahnhof for car pickup by public transport or by sharing a cab.

Meeting point is the exit of the station toward Danziger Platz,

25 km translating into 5 1/2 hours hiking time with lunch at the posted restaurant. Protected content ascents.

Act 2 and 3 to follow later in the season.

Let's go in search of some armadillo !
