Days of Industrial Culture Rhein-Main
Between 2003 and 2013, the so-called Days of Industrial Culture Rhine-Main took place in the last week of summer vacation in Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate , and in 2014 the series of events began at the beginning of the vacation. In the following year, 2015, the series of events moved into the week before the summer vacation in order to better address school groups. Each year there is a specific focus topic:

The route consists of several sub- routes and is so far not a classic holiday route . The two eponymous rivers Rhine and Main , on which the majority of the participating cities are located, can be taken as a common connecting element . Apart from the two rivers, there are still partial routes, but they also belong to the Rhine-Main region.
On the Rhine there are industrial monuments in Bingen, Ingelheim am Rhein and Mainz, the three Rhineland-Palatinate locations on the route. With Wiesbaden, the federal state changes to Hesse and the river changes to the Main and it goes to the Mainspitze to Bischofsheim and Ginsheim-Gustavsburg, past the section of the Hessian Lower Main, which includes the cities of Hochheim am Main, Flörsheim am Main, Raunheim and Kelsterbach. Rüsselsheim am Main and Hattersheim have their own route again, before there are several routes in Frankfurt.
Behind Offenbach and Hanau follows the section Hessischer Oberer Main with Main Valley, Mühlheim am Main, Hainburg, Großkrotzenburg, Seligenstadt and Mainhausen. Here the border to Bavaria is crossed and it continues in Aschaffenburg via the Bavarian Lower Main to Miltenberg.
Away from the rivers there are routes in Bad Homburg, Bad Nauheim, Bad Vilbel, Darmstadt, Friedberg, Friedrichsdorf and in the Main-Taunus district with the cities of Hofheim am Taunus and Kelkheim, Eppstein and Kriftel.
