Things around the Frankfurt International Airport

by Lidych


I will be flying into the Frankfurt International Airport in August. I have 3 hours between the time my flight arrives and when my sister's flight arrives. I was wondering if there is anywhere I can go that is around the airport? How close is the airport to things to see around Frankfurt? Any advice would be appreciated.

Are you flying in from the US? Then about one hour of the three will be gone by the time you have collected your luggage and been through immigration and customs.
There are several cafés and restaurants both in Terminal 1 and 2, so I suggest you just have a coffee and wait for your sister's plane.
The airport is not far from the city centre, about 15/20 minutes by S-Bahn, but with luggage and not much time this looks like too much of a hassle.

I agree with Christine. You will definietly NOT have 3 hours to play with. And then you won't want to wait until the last minute before your sister should arrive either. Enjoy a coffee and something nice from the bakery - preferably not at the airport itself. No one wants to start off their first travel day with unecessary stress.

And so say all of us! The airport is like a little city with shops, Restaurants, pubs, cafes, you will easily fill 3 hours.
It does take time to clear customs and go through immigration, so it could easily be an hour before you are through.

Thank you for your advice! It does sound like I should bring a good book and sit down in a cafe for a few hours. Out of curiosity, does anyone know if there are cafes or restaurants around the area where you pick up your luggage? Or would I have to stay within the terminals?

This has been really helpful and I thank y'all for your posts.

I don't remember any café on the passenger side of the baggage claim, but then I've never looked for one there. Outside of it, where people wait for passengers to come out, there are several cafés.

"..... does anyone know if there are cafes or restaurants around the area where you pick up your luggage?"

I don't think there any cafes at the "baggage claim" in any airport in any country. Any way you look at it, who'd WANT to sit there? You're afraid you'll miss your sister? Tell her to ring on her mobile telephone when she arrives at the baggage claim and you can tell her which cafe you're sitting at so she can come to you instead. That's what I always do when I'm expecting visitors at the airport.

Standing at the exit gate where passengers leave the baggage/customs/immigration is the most frustrating thing I can think of. Every time the door opens you're killing yourself to see if it's who you're waiting for. It's a strain on your eyes and your feet. Forget it. Sit at a nice cafe and let her find you. Treat her to something nice to drink and talk about the flight and plan your next move ..... relaxed.

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

The standard tour for newly...

by lumberjack83

The standard tour for newly assigned people was Alte Sachsenhausen, which is a pedestrian zone consisting of cobblestone streets and a variety of bars. My favorite was Spritzhaus, which literally translates to Spray house and the motif is that of a house that stores firehoses. Used to enjoy the live music there immensely, as well as a Bitburger Pils vom fass. (draft) After several little biers, it was off to the main train station and Muenchener Strasse. If you head toward the North east corner, there is an escalator that will take you right up to the street. Walk about a block or so and you'll find Maier Gustl's Bayerisch Bierhouse. As you enter, there is a coat check on your right and a casual bar on your left. If you walk in further, there is a set of stairs leading to a balcony that surrounds the main part of the club. Every table has a numbered lamp and a telephone on it, with which a person can call other tables. A rather fun way to meet people, practice speaking German and just have a good time. Biers come in two sizes, the large being a full liter!! Driving on the Autobahn and convenient transportation to and from the city via the train. Great place to party. My fondest memory is dancing until the wee hours of the morning at the Bierhaus, eating at a nearby Vietnamese restaurant and pouring myself and my date into the compartment on the train home. If it hadn't been for an efficient conductor opening our compartment to check for our tickets, we might have had an extra special trip on the S-Bahn that morning!

See the Commerzbank building!! It's the tallest office building in Europe..71th in the whole world (as of July 2004)..It has some special features that makes this a beautiful and distinct building:

- triunghiular section, it has three faces, three corners (every corner has inside a different know where you are)

- nine very big interior gardens...every three with a different climatic zone vegetation

- original natural ventilation system...every windows opens and closes automatically

- some floors you can see from one side to the other

- it's very tall and it's 15 elevators are very fast

Check out the travelogue for the Commerzbank building!!

If you are living in Frankfurt...

by amyhenderson

The Frankfurt lifestyle does not really promote exercise or sports. However, there are of course most people who use a bike to commute as the city is geographically a small and flat area. However, to really get into sports you need to actively seek a club of your sport of choice. Tennis, squash, volleyball, cycling... check this site for events and good links to sporting clubs

Alzheimer's Marker

by yooperprof

Dr. Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915), the first physician to diagnose the dreaded mental condition which bears his name, was a neurologist at the state asylum here in Frankfurt in the late 19th century. The first real diagnosis of the dreaded "forgetting disease" was made by Dr. Alzheimer in 1901 for one of his patients, a certain 51 year old woman named Auguste D. This marker is a quiet memorial for the first person who began trying to understand the onset of adult dementia.

It's just a little bit to the west of the Poelzig building on the campus of the J.W. Goethe University. (Important for me in that my grandmother had Alzheimer's.)
