Taunus mountains panorama

Taunus

The Taunus is a low mountain range in the federal states of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate, which borders Frankfurt to the north. In some parts this area has a thin settlement and the abundance of forests which make the Taunus a popular excursion destination in the Greater Frankfurt Area. The largest elevation in the Taunus is the Großer Feldberg (879 meters; 2,880 feet). From here you have a good view of the high-rise skyline of Frankfurt and large parts of the Frankfurt City Region.
