Frankfurt - en route to Israel, or not
I'm not sure you guys haven't written-off Frankfurt too easily. If you find museums interesting there are some excellent ones in Frankfurt. My favourite is the "cheese-wedge" (ie the Museum of Modern Art) which usually has an interesting exhibition (and a good permanent...
Great chance to have a look to german's culture. Really big outdoor market where you can buy typical Frunkfurt stuff and try different kinds of food such as sausages, cheese, roasted chestnuts, hot wine...

Hard Rock Cafe-Frankfurt: An Original Hard Rock Cafe
If you are a fan of Hard Rock Cafe then this is a must see location. The story I was told at the restaurant is that this was one of the first two Hard Rock Cafes. When the business decided to franchise, the Frankfurt location did not go along with the idea. Since it already...
Fichte Kränzi: Apple Wine
We didn't eat there, unfortunately, but we did stop in to sample some of their Apple Wine. Apple wine is a big deal in Frankfurt. We saw it served in most, if not all restaurants we were in or passed. So of course we had to try it, it's got to be good, right? I like apples....
MONZA: Party Time.!
This is one of the best places I have never ever been in Frankfurt.!
There are many other discos, but they are or too expensives or too bored... or the music they play is just horrible.!
At theis place the drinks are not expensive and the enviroment is very nice with a lot off nice people.! The best is the music, they have a lot of dj´s coming from Norway, DK, UK, and all over Europe.! To me this is the only good place where to go for a good dancing at frankfurt.!
Dress Code: No sneakers, no jeans.

Seeds from Euralis
At the corner of a cornfield just up the hill from Frankfurt I came across this sign from the French seed company Euralis, saying that the seeds used in this field were of the type “ES Olimpus S 260 K 240”.According to the company’s German website, this is a...
Flowers by the roadside
These freshly cut flowers in a vase by the roadside presumably mark the spot where someone was killed by a motor vehicle.The German government has proudly announced that “only” 3,648 people were killed by motor vehicles in the year 2010. This is 12 % fewer than the year...
Addiction made easy
Frankfurt doesn’t even have a shop where you can buy basic things like bread or peanut butter, but it does have several vending machines for cigarettes.Traditionally these machines were mounted low to the ground so even the smallest child could get addicted without standing...
Over $500 for Luggage at Lufthansa!
On a flight from London Heathrow to Frankfurt, the Lufthansa check-in lady had a problem with me checking in two (2) bags of 20 kilos each. She said that I was only allowed one bag of 20 kilos. I tried to explain that I had just brought these two bags over the Atlantic Ocean on United Airlines for FREE, but she didn't care. She told me she would not take the bag unless I paid for it, and sent me to another counter to pay.
When I went to the next counter, I don’t think the girl could speak English, because she never said a word to me. She just took the paper and gave me a receipt. I had paid for extra baggage before, but not very often. It usually ran about fifty dollars. Oh well.
However, when I looked at my receipt from Lufthansa, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Was I dreaming? Nope. I had just paid $527 for a suitcase?! My ticket was even less than that !!! How could they make such a mistake?!? But, it was already done, and I was rushing out to catch my next flight. There wouldn’t be another for 24 hours!
When I got to the plane, the stewardess assured me that I would be able to fix the problem when I got to Frankfurt. I waited in the Lufthansa line the entire time I was in Frankfurt, but I had to leave again to catch my flight!
Now that I am home in Chicago, I wrote to Lufthansa to see if they would fix this matter. They wouldn't. They told me that $527 for one extra suitcase was reasonable.

Gasthof zur frohen Einkehr
This is the only restaurant and pension that I noticed in Frankfurt. I passed by here twice on my bicycle on two different days, but I didn’t sleep or eat here so I can’t say how it is.On their website they say that the inn was founded in 1922 and has been run by the Schwab...
