Fechenheim, by the Main River, grew from a small fishing village. Its city centre has retained much of the village atmosphere, despite its big commercial and industrial areas. Some of the largest expanses of green space in Frankfurt can be found here, though there may be some contamination of the environment due to industrial waste.
Riederwald is a tiny residential area 4 km east of the city centre. It has a very tranquil environment despite its proximity to the centre of Frankfurt. It is well-connected to the city by bus lines.
