Bockenheim is a city district of Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is part of the Ortsbezirk Innenstadt II.

Bockenheim lies west of central Frankfurt and is the third largest district by population in Frankfurt after Sachsenhausen and the Nordend with approximately 35,000 inhabitants.

Bockenheim is bordered by the Goethe University, the Senckenberg museum and the Frankfurt Trade Fair in the south. The Bockenheimer Depot was the central tram depot, built around 1900, which is now a theatre, a venue of the Städtische Bühnen Frankfurt. Bockenheim also houses the global headquarters of the Hesse Bundesbank

In 2019, Albert Engelhardt published a mystery novel, "Das andere Land oder Siesta am Kanakenbunker", set in the district.[1]
