Niederursel is a must-visit district of the historic German city of Frankfurt. It is conveniently located approximately eight kilometres from the city centre. The district's first industries were mill-based, due to its location on the Ursel Creek. They included tobacco, paper, and grain mills. The town was incorporated into the city of Frankfurt in 1910. One of the newer branches of the city's Goethe University, Campus Riedberg, is located nearby. Today Niederursel is mainly a residential area, serving housing and the day-to-day needs of the students and employees of the University.
- See Frankfurt’s old City Hall, which dates back to 1716, and is located in Niederursel. The historical building’s exterior has the timbered framing, which was typical of German buildings of the time.
- Experience Niederursel’s Gustav Adolph Church, which was built in 1927. It has an octagonal floor plan, which was an unusual design at the time.
- See the remnants of two Jewish cemeteries, both of which are on Oberurseler Weg. In nearby Rodelheim Westerbachstrasse, (still in Frankfurt), there are Jewish cemetery memorial stones on display in the Christian cemetery.
Frankfurt’s International Airport, (airport code FRA), is one of Europe’s busiest airports, with flights from a large number of international and domestic destinations. From the airport to Niederursel one of the best modes of transport is the city’s U-Bahn, which has a station at Niederursel. Other options include car rentals and taxicabs, which can be secured at the airport. Once you’ve arrived at your destination you can use city buses or walk to attractions within the district. Frankfurt’s U-Bahn and bus systems are well integrated and useful for getting from there to other parts of the city.
