According to the Castle Law of 1438, the citizens of Bockenheim had the right to seek refuge within Frankfurt’s city walls in the event of imposing danger.

Now the third largest district in the state, Bockenheim thrills holidaymakers of all shapes and sizes with its vast weekly markets, that sell some of the most authentic delicacies and handicrafts in Germany, as well as the area’s Bockenheim Depot, where exciting bars, shopping, and entertainment can be found.
