The 20th of March of every year heralds the beginning of spring,

But in Frankfurt, springtime commences the moment you feel the sun shining warmly on your skin.

The city awakens to new life as flowers bloom in the parks and the banks of the Main fill with people enjoying the fresh air. Cafés move their chairs outside and the streets of Frankfurt come alive with visitors and locals eager to catch the first rays of sunshine.

With the arrival of spring, evenings in Frankfurt turn into a time full of warmth and a lively atmosphere. People gather in the outdoor areas of cafés and restaurants to enjoy the fresh breeze and the first long hours of sunshine together.

Bicycles are brought out of hibernation and spring festivals take place all over the city, celebrating Frankfurt's cultural diversity.

It is a time of renewal and joy, when the city opens its doors and warmly invites everyone to experience spring in Frankfurt in all its splendour.
