Höchst, Frankfurt am Main

Höchst is a small town of 10,000 inhabitants located in the heart of the Oden Forest, 25km east of Darmstadt. Every year the city hosts a range of festivals such as the Apfelblütenfest (Apple Blossom Festival) and a string of impressive markets such as the Odenwälder Kartoffelmarkt (the Potato Market – a true testament to Germany’s appreciation for the tuber). This is ideal for communicating with the great outdoors and breathing in the fresh air, and is particularly good for younger students.
