Frankfurt by train

Monday, January 28th, 2008

Today the Monday Podcast combines two ideas. When I was younger, I used to enjoy going out for a day and just riding on trains in cities like London or Rotterdam. Now it was time to try this with my daughter in Frankfurt.

Secondly, I often read questions in forums about visiting Frankfurt for only a few hours, eg. between flights, and I wanted to see how much of Frankfurt it was possible to see using the trams and U-Bahn lines.

Listen to the podcast to hear where we went and what we saw:

The U-Bahn to Oberursel-Hohemark

Monday, March 5th, 2007

Today the Monday Podcast took a trip on the U-Bahn to the end station, “Hohemark”. We intended to talk about about the history of the line and what is left of the turning circle at the end of the line that used to be used in the days of the trams.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan. First we missed the train, and then it starting raining so hard, that we had to give up and go home again.

I hope you still enjoy this rather shorter podcast.
