The Salt Lounge in Oberursel

Monday, January 25th, 2010

This week the Monday Podcast visited the Salt Lounge in Oberursel.  The salt lounge is a place that people can go to, in order to relax and enjoy the salt air.  There is one grotto for families and other for business people.

We talked to the owner Sven Warth about how he came up with the idea, why people go there, and where all the salt comes from.

Christmas Markets in 2009

Monday, December 21st, 2009

It has not been a good year for the Christmas markets in Germany. With so much damp and wet weather, many people have been staying away from them. After all, it is not much fun drinking Glühwein in the rain.

It has only been the last weekend in December when the temperature sank below zero – actually it sank a long way below zero – and there was some snow on the ground.

So rather than the planned series of podcasts from local Christmas markets, here is a summary of our attempts to visit them during the past weeks:

Frankfurt Airport

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Frankfurt Airport (Frankfurter Flughafen) is located to the west of the city and is easily reached by train (S-Bahn or Regionalbahn) or car.  It even has its own inter-city train station (ICE).

The airport is split into two terminals, with Star Alliance airlines in Terminal 1 and One World airlines such as British Airways in Terminal 2.  In fact, Lufthansa occupies a large amount of Terminal 1.

The two terminals are connected via a monorail called the Skyline and there is parking available at both terminals.

There is also an airport called “Frankfurt-Hahn”, which is located 126km away and is used by budget airlines, Ryanair being a prime example.  There is a bus transfer available between the two airports.
