There will be one party on saturday. Please add here possible locations. Should be suitable to host 350-500 guests.

U60311[edit]

very special clubby location, former pedestrian underpass in the very heart of frankfurt, about 200 meters from Hauptwache

Gemaltes Haus (painted House)[edit]

very typical location for frankfurt, famous for its indigenous athmosphere and kitchen - local specialty is ebbelwoi a type of cider (ähnlich aber netter ist übrigens der Wagner, drei Häuser weiter. v.a. ist der Wagner nicht ganz so touri-überlaufen und das essen ist super (deftig).

Mainufer am Eisernen Steg (River Main banks near Iron Footbridge)[edit]

sitting in the grass, warm summer night, water flows, cicadas chirping, stars shining and over all the Frankfurt Skyline is twinkling. For food and drinking a nearby Restaurant/Party-boat could be rented

Boat trip on the Main river[edit]

the party could take place on a boat cruising on the Main/Rhein from Frankfurt to Mainz or the Rheingau. Eating, drinking, dancing, talking or sitting on deck, star-gazing...

Palmengarten (Frankfurt Botanical Garden)[edit]

Party in the community house (Gesellschaftshaus des Vereins der Freunde des Palmengartens) with evening walks through the Park

By phonecall, I received the information that the community house is being renovated until 2007 and therefore not available for social events. --Mkleine 21:10, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Kastell Saalburg[edit]

former roman castle at the limes near frankfurt, rebuilt at the end of the 19th century, taberna hall can be rent, really pretty appurtenant structures. Getting there by train is easy and a nice trip with a short walk alongside the limes.

I requested more information about the pricing, possible number of guests asf. by email. --Mkleine 16:05, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Too small! --Mkleine 11:12, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Bockenheimer Depot[edit]

Old tramway depot in Bockenheim, near University, very nice building, suitable for many types of events

Brotfabrik[edit]

Eher bodenständiger Veranstaltungsort

Palais im Zoo[edit]

In case somebody has this idea: It's too expensive! --Mkleine 21:16, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)
