Frankfurt to Venice

by cmpeacock

What is the best way to get from Frankfurt to Venice? Or, does it make more sense to skip Venice and go directly from Frankfurt to Rome?

welcome to vt. sadly there is no information on your homepage or details of your proposed trip so it is hard to say whether venice fits into your planned trip or not. every city is worth visiting in italy if your interests coincide, but frankly we were not that impressed with venice other than of course the canals and bridges etc. it you are visiting many major cities and are short of time, i would personally allot very little or none to venice. obviously, given the poster above, there are disagreements on this.

Re: Frankfurt to Venice

Only you can decide whether you want to miss Venice.

It depends entirely on how much time you have, how much interest in history and on your budget.

The best way is to fly. www.whichbudget.com lists all European budget carriers and their routes. Be aware that fares rise the nearer you get to departure, so book around 6-8 weeks ahead for best fares (too early and you will be quoted the standard fare, too late and fares will be higher). Also be aware of strict hold baggage limits (20kg for most, 15kg for Ryanair) and strict check-in times: a couple of minutes late and you will miss your flight with no refund.

It is also worth looking at Lufthansa, as they sometimes offer good deals. www.skyscanner.net will give you cheapest fares for your dates.

It is, of course, possible to go by train but this is a long journey.

will give you train times, details and (possibly) fares.

Travel Tips for Frankfurt am Main

Go down to the Main river as...

by antz

Go down to the Main river as it is very picturesque. If you get a chance, try to take a trip down the river on one of the tour boats. I would love to tell you what they are like, however, we couldn't find the bloody things! It was one thing that I would have liked to have done. One thing I really do miss about Germany as a whole, is the fact that it is so clean.
Frankfurt for a huge city is very clean. They seem to really be into recycling as well with bins everywhere marked off for different paper, plastic and bottle sections.
If only everywhere in the world could be so conscious of how nice a clean city is!

Public Art - Homosexual Memorial

by yooperprof

Frankfurt was one of the first cities in Europe to commemorate the sufferings of homosexuals during World War II. The gay/lesbian memorial stands on the corner of Alte Gasse and Schafergasse. The angel's head is severed from its body - yet it is still graceful and dignified.

Eintracht Frankfurt at the Waldstadion

by antistar

Eintracht Frankfurt aren't one of the biggest nor most successful teams in Germany, but they do have a great stadium, and it was used during the World Cup in 2006 to host high profile games such as Argentina vs Holland and the quarter final between Brazil and France.

Eintracht's low profile is a benefit for anyone who wants to enjoy a game of top flight football at a relatively low price, because the Waldstadion is rarely sold out, except for games against Bayern Munich and Schalke, and local derbies against Mainz.

Eintracht also have the added bonus of being in European football in 2006/2007, for the first time in years. They qualified for the UEFA cup after making it all the way to the German cup final (the DFB Pokal).

China in Frankfurt

by chicabonita

Sometime ago I walked down the Berger Strasse till the end for the first time ... I was really surprised to find a wonderful park with many flowers and a part of this park (no idea about the name) is a Chinese garden.

Wonderful! I guess also another hidden beauty in FFM :-)))

I guess the nearest tube station is Merianplatz, but I'm not sure ...

Mitropa dining car on display

by Nemorino

Every morning when I cycled to work I used to go past the Frankfurt headquarters of DB, the German rail system. For a while this was their national headquarters, but now all the really big bosses have moved to Berlin, where they have a huge new building on Potsdamer Platz.

Out front of their Frankfurt building they have built a very short section of track and have put an old electric locomotive and an old Mitropa dining car on display. Since this bit of track is not connected to any other tracks, the locomotive and dining car were transported here by large cranes from the nearest rail yard which is several hundred meters away.

It might seem ironic that they set up this display just at the time they were trying to abolish all the dining cars from the real trains, but I think that was intentional. They wanted us all to think that dining cars were a thing of the past and therefore suited to museum-type displays only.

From what little I know of Marketing, based mainly on a hasty weekend seminar I took once, it seems to me that in any marketing campaign the first step should be to decide what your USPs are, your Unique Selling Points. For a rail system, dining cars are definitely a USP, since no automobile and no airplane will ever have a dining car. But the DB leadership, consisting mainly of ex-Lufthansa managers who had no idea how to run a railroad, didn't realize this until they were confronted with a massive public protest which forced them to reinstate the dining cars.

This outdoor exhibit is in the Gallus district of Frankfurt am Main, corner of Idsteiner Strasse and Stephensonstrasse, which by the way is named after the English inventor and railway pioneer George Stephenson, 1781-1848.
