Join half a million fellow revellers on the Festplatz am Ratsweg for Frankfurt's Frɒhlings Dippemess (Spring Dippe Fair), the first open-air fair after the end of winter. Highlights are the huge firework displays which open and close the event.
Frankfurt's Spring Dippe Fair has developed from a market of household crafts which first took place in the 14th century (Dippe is dialect for pots). Today it is one of the most popular funfairs in the country, attracting 500,000 visitors (without having abandoned the traditional trade in pots and pans).

Try one of the numerous carousels, the rollercoaster, or, if you prefer, stick to the regional wine and food - Frankfurt boasts an unusual speciality in its apple wine, served in rustic earthenware jugs at the Spring Dippe Fair.
