The "Berger Strasse" street festival
My third and last favorite summer festival is “The Berger Strasse” street festival. This festival is extremely popular and is one of the best street festivals around. The “Berger Strasse”(Berger street) is located in the Frankfurt city district of Bornheim. This is one of the best and most popular streets in the city, filled with cafes, pubs, unique little stores, and a pedestrian area. When you come to Frankfurt, you definitely need to walk through Bornheim and stop for awhile to enjoy this neighborhood and get a real feel for both Germany and Frankfurt.
This wonderful street festival is a multicultural highlight, when the lower Berger Street transforms into a party mile for the weekend. It is a more family oriented fest with great live music and good food.

To escape for a while from the loud partying crowd, I took a walk to the Bethmann Park with its Chinese Garden situated at the lower part of the Berger Strasse. This is a very gorgeous spot and I was in awe as I walked into this oasis of calm and beauty set right in the middle of a bustling city. Entering the park I could see the walls of the Chinese Garden and also I could hear the waterfall inside the walls. This was the perfect place for me to escape and relax from the loud and partying folk on the street and just enjoy some minutes of peace and quiet. The garden was landscaped in 1990 according to the age old principles of feng shui, making it the ideal place to sit back, relax and meditate. The 'Garden of Heavenly Freedom' contains pagodas, sculptures and a host of exotic plants, but the undoubted highlights are the Jade Bridge and the Gallery of Aromatic Waters.There is a pond at the immediate entrance into the garden with lots of goldfish in it and some baby turtles swimming around. This was the perfect way to end a long and fun-filled partying weekend.
