Frankfurt am Main Airport is by far the most important airport in Germany and one of the ten largest in the world. Not far southeast of Frankfurt Airport is the Frankfurt-Egelsbach airfield, which is frequented by smaller machines.
A network of cycle paths runs through Hesse. The nine long-distance cycle paths (R1–R9) as well as the Lahntal cycle path, the Weser cycle path and the Werratal cycle path are of national importance. There are also a number of regional routes which, like the long-distance cycle paths, are particularly important for cycle tourism, for example the Vogelsberger Südbahn cycle path or the volcano cycle path.

Hesse's only national park is the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park. Part of it has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Ancient Beech Forests and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe” since 2011. The Messel Pit, a world-class fossil deposit, has been a World Heritage Site since 1995.
