- Back in 1865, the Galopprennbahn some five kilometers (three miles) south of Frankfurt was turned into a race course for around 6000 spectators. The terraces, originally modeled on those in Paris, have since been replaced, but one of the entrance buildings still boasts its original towers and turnstiles. The Frankfurt Racing Association organizes a variety of meetings every season, the highlights being the Grosse Preis von Hessen (Hessen Grand Prix) and the Carl von Weinberg Cup. A place for experts and enthusiasts, but also for total novices just wanting a fun afternoon out.
