The most important attraction in Hanau is Philippsruhe Palace, which is a 12-minute drive from the offered property.

Sports facilities in Hanau include Turngemeinde Hanau gymnastics club (11 minutes away by car), the Hanauer Sport Club (14 minutes away by car) and the 1st Hanauer Football Club 1893 (15 minutes away by car).

Hanau is located not far from the Bavarian-Hessian border and is part of the catchment area of the city of Frankfurt. The centre of Frankfurt is 28 minutes away by car. Frankfurt Airport can be reached in 22 minutes by car. In addition to the infrastructural benefits resulting from the proximity to the airport, the airport is also the largest employer in Hesse. Furthermore, Frankfurt offers a huge number of jobs in the finance industry. Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank and Deutsche Börse have their headquarters in Frankfurt. In addition, Frankfurt has a wide range of education institutes. Goethe University is one of the largest universities in Germany. Frankfurt is home to the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, one of Europe's leading institutes of higher education in the field of business and management. The German National Library is also located in Frankfurt. Because of the good transport connections to Frankfurt, employees working in Frankfurt and students attending university in Frankfurt often choose to live in Hanau. This may be one reason why Hanau’s population has increased by 10.6% since 2019.
