Online Dictionary Südhessisch - English


Southhesse is the region between Frankfurt/Main in the north and Mannheim in the south, from the Rhine to the east of the Mountains of Odenwald.

This wild region starts right behind the fence of the airport Frankfurt/Main. Any foreign passenger getting outside the secure Airport will be happy, if he is able to express his wishes and needs.
