Höchst, a town with a castle and an Altstadt right out of a picture book, is now part of Frankfurt. It wasn't devastated by wartime bombing, so its castle and the market square, with its half-timber houses, are well preserved. It's a romantic place for outdoor dining and drinking. For a week in July the whole of Altstadt is hung with lanterns for the Schlossfest, one of Frankfurt's more popular outdoor festivals.
