Wäldchestag (Frankfurt Forest Festival)
18th May – 21th May 2024
In Frankfurt, the Tuesday after Whitsuntide is traditionally known as "Wäldchestag", or "Forest Day". On this day, Frankfurt citizens flock to their municipal forest to celebrate a traditional folk fair that dates back many, many centuries, possibly as far back at the 1300s.
The festival has over the centuries become known as Frankfurt's unofficial "national holiday". "Wäldchestag" is synonymous with the identification and emotional attachment that Frankfurt locals lovingly feel for their hometown.
