Frankfurt airport connection to france please help!

by pinkbrina

i booked tickets to paris through three different airlines, (it was cheaper)

I realized i may have made a bit of a blunder and i am wondering if i can make this all work out or if i am screwed.

I am getting to frankfurt at 9:35 AM from NYC on a Sunday. I am not checking in any bags and I walk/move quickly. I have a connection on Air France at 10:40 AM to paris CDG

I read that I can check in 30 hrs prior to departure on their air france website

So my question, do you think I can make this flight? Do I have to go through customs? How long will it get from my flight from nyc(DELTA) to paris (Air France)

thank you

Re: Frankfurt airport connection to france please help!

by christine.j

It all depends on your first plane being on time and then how long the line for immigration will be. This can take a long time.
The good thing is both Delta and Air France are in Terminal 2.
Still it is very tight.
By the way, there is a fast train from Frankfurt to Paris, city centre to city centre, which may even be faster, all things considered.

Christine is right.

It is very tight, but at least you have no baggage to reclaim and check-in. Much depends on how long your have to queue at immigration.

There is information about transfers here:

http://www.airportcity-frankfurt.com/cms/default/rubrik/9/9842.transfers.htm

If the worst comes to the worst and delays mean you miss your Paris flight, you may find it quicker and cheaper to get a train rather than another flight. You can make the journey in 4/5 hours or so, with one change. The station is well-signed in the airport and ticket office staff sepak good English. Train times & details here:

Enter 'Frankfurt Flughafen' and Paris.

Try Bethmännchen, Frankfurt’s famous sweets

by Trekki

I briefly checked if VT has any tip on this delicious local sweets and as there is none (Don, why didn’t you already wrote about them?), I thought, I could mention them.
Bethmännchen (literally translated into little Bethmann, albeit more of these) is a very much delicious pastry which we eat for Christmas. It consists of marzipan, almonds, sugar, flour, egg and rosewater, all formed to small balls, which are decorated with almond halves, glazed with egg yolk and then baked.
The name derives from an old family, local to Frankfurt. Their pastry chef Jean Jacques Gautenier has developed the recipe in 1838, at least is what legend says. Originally they are said to have four almonds, one for each of the Bethmann sons Moritz, Alexander, Karl and Heinrich and that after Heinrich’s death in 1845, one almond was left aside. However, this is what legends say, and they might be even older, as the father Simon Moritz von Bethmann died already in 1826.

Well, legend or not – they are very much delicious and a perfect gift to bring back home, in case you are at Frankfurt during Christmas times :-)

I should mention that I took the photo and then they vanished to please my tastes and stomach, and only then I transferred the photos to my computer.... When I realised that I was a bit out of focus... it was too late. Sorry !

Swimming pool in Frankfurt-Eschersheim

by Nemorino

This is one of four outdoor swimming pools in the Nidda Valley in Frankfurt am Main.

It's a large, pleasant place with a selection of sunny and shady areas.

Admission is EUR 3.50 for adults, but that goes down to EUR 1.70 after six o'clock (evening price). They close at eight.

Update: The Eschersheim outdoor swimming pool re-opened in the spring of 2010 after being closed for a year and rebuilt from scratch because the old pool had been losing too much water. The new pool looks really nice. New photos to follow shortly.

Bethmann park

by Polly74

Shielded from big-city traffic by thick walls, this peaceful oasis was at one time the serene and idyllic garden of Frankfurt´s renowned Bethmann family. Featuring a floral splendour of special magnificence, Bethmann Park could well double as the lush parklands of a regal spa resort. The Chinese Garden, landscaped according to the principles of feng-shui, is the park´s biggest attraction. Its pond, bridges and the dragon-guarded portal serve as popular photo motifs. A place of great serenity – perfect for meditation and quiet contemplation.

Address: Mauerweg 8

Preungesheim Prison

by Nemorino

If this looks like a prison, well, that's what it is -- the back end of the prison in the Frankfurt district of Preungesheim.

The shiny new fence with rolls of barbed wire at the top was just built within the last few weeks. You can see it while cycling from Preungesheim to the neighboring district of Seckbach.

Some colleagues of mine used to teach here in the prison as part of a rehabilitation project, until their funding ran out.

In 1988 a high-security courtroom was built in this prison, for the trial of a suspected terrorist.

Off in the distance to the left is the Frankfurt television tower.
