Wäldche“ means in the dialekt of Hesse little forest.
This day exists only in Frankfurt. It's said that the „ Wäldches“-day
the favourite public holiday of the people of Frankfurt. It's the
Thuesday after Whitsun Monday. Nothing very special happens. The
frankfutians go out into the city-forest in the south of the city.
There are a Ferris wheel, motor scooter and merry-go-rounds, shops
with sweets and shops with sausages. But all this you can find at
other national festivals, like the Dipemess. And more of culture
you find at the „musem-bank-festival“. The secret of
the „Wäldchse-day“ is to find in the mixture of
forest and family respectively friends. To sitt with all the people
you love peacful and relaxed in the forest and eat and drink with
great joy. Every one enjoys that- every year again.
