May - popularly known as the "merry month" - not only brings us joy because the sun often shines, it's getting warmer outside and many flowers are blooming. May also brings us joy because of its many public holidays and invites us to a long weekend or a short vacation. A stay in one Hotel in Frankfurt-Oder is a good opportunity for that.
It all starts on April 30th, when everyone celebrates the "Dance into May". On Walpurgis Night, the farewell to winter and the often changeable weather in April is celebrated. Summer is just around the corner. In many places across the country, very different customs, such as erecting a maypole, have emerged over the centuries. Mostly people dance into May at parties in clubs, restaurants and bars with offers for different age groups.
Just a few days later, on May 5th, the next public holiday is Ascension Day. The Sunday after is Mother's Day. Friday is often taken as a bridging day off. This makes the weekend perfect for a longer trip. Also a Hotel in Frankfurt-Oder is a good place for that. During this long weekend, guests have the choice between bike tours, walks along the Oder or through one of the city's parks. Perhaps one of the numerous cultural events or a visit to the Polish twin town of Slubice will tempt you.
On May 15th and 16th, the Whitsun weekend is the next long weekend in May. This weekend, too, numerous events will be offered in Frankfurt-Oder and the surrounding area, which you can expect from a Hotel near the train station can achieve very well. If the weather is good, a trip to one of the nearby lakes, such as the Helenensee, is also worthwhile. Maybe in mid-May it's already warm enough to lie in the sun or go for a swim?
In some federal states, May 26th (Corpus Christi) is also a public holiday, which means there is a chance of a long weekend. If the weather cooperates, May is the best month for a short break. And Frankfurt-Oder is a city where there is always something going on. And those who want to take a little break in Frankfurt-Oder with the whole family in May will also find numerous offers. Children, for example, look forward to a visit to the wildlife park, where goats, donkeys, rabbits and many other animals await them.
