I grew up in Hanau and moved to the states in 2000. Grossauheim was the place to be! Not only was the Rod N gun Club only minutes from my house but also the one and only Hanau Mud Races. Oh how I miss the mud pit on a Sunday morning.
I visit my family (mom German/ dad American) about ever 2 years and seeing the changes over the years can bring you to tears. Driving down Wolfgang and seen all the emptiness now there seems still unreal. All those abandoned military bases, ugh.
Hanau will always be in my heart, nothing has meet up to its beauty. Walking down the Main river for miles, taking in all the riverbanks and churches along. And thinking about the food... oh what I wouldn't I give for a good curry wurst or just a nice tasty Doener... yummm. Hanau is so full of history and fairy tales, it is a great place to be and visit. I will be moving back in the next 2 years, so my daughter can be raised with all the magic Hanau has to offer.
