With a long history dating back to the late Middle Ages, the Dippemess has become a permanent institution and a highlight in the region’s event calendar.

In this blog post, we give you a comprehensive overview of this year’s Dippemess, from its history to how to get there and the numerous attractions.

The eventful history of the Frankfurt Dippemess

The origins of the Dippemess date back to the late Middle Ages, when potters and jug makers from the Wetterau region and the Kannebäckerland offered their wares, the “Dippe”, at the Frankfurt fair. Even then, the colorful hustle and bustle attracted jugglers, acrobats, tightrope walkers and comedians. Over the centuries, the event evolved and the traditional trade stands were joined by fairground stalls and showmen. Since 1968, the Dippemess has been held on the fairground on Ratsweg in Frankfurt’s Ostend district.

Arrival and parking – a stress-free trip to the fair

As parking spaces on the fairground are in short supply, it is advisable to travel by public transport. The “Eissporthalle/Festplatz” stop is located directly at the event site and is served by the subway line U7, streetcar line 12 and bus lines 38 and 103. All means of transportation run until midnight and thus ensure a relaxed arrival and departure.

If you still want to arrive by car, enter “Ostparkstraße – via Ratsweg – Frankfurt am Main” in your navigation system. Please note that there are no parking spaces available directly at the fairground.
