The second small par is

Freizeitpark Lochmühle

Freizeitpark Lochmühle has been an extraordinary and popular attraction in the Rhein-Main area for more than 40 years.

riesenrutsche_1 The park grounds, which have, in the meantime, grown to 16 hectares, attract visitors from all over Germany and offer ample possibilities of retreat, even at peak times.
As a former corn mill with an agricultural enterprise the Lochmühle consciously dissociates from the large, high-tech parks. Instead of offering a few huge attractions with – often – long waiting queues, we count on variety and diversity in a rural environment.

Here children can enjoy themselves with about 100 fun rides and playground toys. They can frolic in the natural river or on meadows, play with indigenous animals in the pets’ corner or, with a bit of luck, even watch little chicks hatch. The possibility to have picnics or barbecues in groups of various sizes rounds off our range of offers.

Experiencing nature, seeking contact with animals, being allowed to frolic around, being together with one’s family and spending time together with people you like:
This exciting mixture of offers, combined with a wide range of personal experience are greatly appreciated  by school classes, playschools and families.
