go to city in interval time between connection flights

by benz1

Hi,

I have a flight with Luftansa fron US to Israel via connection in Frankfurt Intl airport. I have 7h in between time for the connection flight so my question is if i can ask to drop off my bag at Germany so i can go to the city for few hours...

Re: go to city in interval time between connection flights

by ViajesdelMundo

Are you enquiring about your carry-on bag? Presumably, your checked bags will already be tagged for pick up in Israel. (I am sure someone else who knows will be able to answer that part of the question for you, as I have not had to use this facility in FRA.)

Are you asking about left luggage facilities at Frankfurt airport?

There are left luggage facilities at:

Terminal 1:
B Concourse, Level 1 (Arrivals)
Open daily 24 hours

Between the B and C Concourses on Level 2 (Departures)
Open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Terminal 2:
D Concourse, Level 2 (Arrivals)
Open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

4 euro per item for up to 7 hours.

Depending on your nationality, you may need a Schengen visa to leave the airport transit area. You need to check this with your airline, or with the German Consulate in your country.

yes i know i can keep the bags in the airport and go to town.
But i need that the bags will not forwarded directly to Israel as i understand then i cannot go out of the airport...
So, my question is actually if it is possible to tell someone NOT to forward the bags so i can pick them & store them, and go out to town...

Re: go to city in interval time between connection flights

by leics

That is a question for your airline, not for the airport or anybody on VT.

Only they can tell you whether this is acceptable within their policies or not.

Re: go to city in interval time between connection flights

it is lufthansa airline. Do they allow the option to drop the bags and not forward it automatically to the destination final?

Re: go to city in interval time between connection flights

by christine.j

When checking in in the US,you can ask Lufthansa not to check through your bags to Israel, but then you have to get them in Frankfurt from the baggage claim and store them in the left luggage. You also will have to be back at the airport at least three hours before your flight to Israel, as security for these flights is very tight.
Are you sure you cannot leave the airport when your bags are checked through?

Prior to my departure from France to attend the Frankfurt Book Fair I heard about an English website for restaurants in Germany. It is still new but worthwhile checking: http://www.selected-restaurants.com or http://www.preview.selected-restaurants.com.I found a few off-the-beat places for Frankfurt

Cycling and jogging by the river

by Nemorino

People flying in to Frankfurt from other parts of the world often ask me what I suggest they could do here during a brief visit, and the first thing I always recommend is that after sitting cramped up in a plane for many hours they should get out and have some exercise by cycling, jogging, walking, or in-line skating along the left (south) bank of the Main River.

The regional cycling routes M and R3 lead right through here along the left side of the Main River, that is the south side or Sachsenhausen side, also known as "dribbdebach" in the local dialect, as opposed to "hibbdebach" which is the right/north side where all the big buildings are.

This (left) side of the river is also known as the Museumsufer or Museum Bank, because many of Frankfurt's major museums are located here.

Second photo: The city of Frankfurt has been fixing up the river bank very nicely in the past few years. On this side (which is the left / south bank) you can now cycle from Offenbach to Schwanheim without stopping, and have great views all along the way. The tallest-looking buildings in this photo are, from left to right, Westendstraße 1, Silver Tower, Gallileo, Skyper, Eurotower and Commerzbank Tower. For details and photos of the individual buildings, please have a look at the Frankfurt Skyline Countdown on my Land Hessen page.

Third photo: Sunbathers on one of the new grassy areas on the left bank. The suspension bridge off to the right is a pedestrian and cycling bridge called the Holbeinsteg, which leads directly from the city center to the Städel art museum.

Fourth photo: Does anyone know what these things are called?

Fifth photo: Cyclist on the Untermainbrücke (Lower Main Bridge).

Update November 2010: Thanks to VT member alza (Lou) for pointing me to an article about the sports equipment shown in the fourth photo.

It turns out that these things the guy has strapped to his feet and legs have numerous names including Adjustable Stilts, Flying Jumpers, Powerisers, Powerskips, Velocity Stilts, Flyjumpers, 7 League Boots, SkyRunner, Pro-Jumps and Powerbocks.

They were invented in the 1990s by a German named Alexander Bock, who has been awarded patents on them both in Europe (2003) and in the United States (2004).

Golub-Lebedenko-Platz

by Nemorino

Across the street from the Adler factory there is a little square which never had a name before as far as I know.

It has recently been named Golub-Lebedenko-Platz in honor of Adam Golub, born on June 12, 1925, in Dnepropetrowsk, and Georgi Lebedenko, born on October 6, 1923, in Kiew (both in the Ukraine).

Golub and Lebedenko were two of the more than 1600 prisoners of various nationalities were held here at the Katzbach concentration camp and forced to work in the Adler factory making airplanes.

On March 14, 1945, they attempted to escape and were both shot to death in two of the streets near this square. The local population did nothing to help them, on the contrary.

Scarcely two weeks later, on March 29, the American Army occupied the city, and the war was over as far as Frankfurt was concerned.
