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.

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.

Frankfurt Christmas Market

Monday, December 10th, 2007

I haven’t had much of a chance to visit the Christmas Markets this year. I had good intentions of blogging and podcasting from different ones, but in the end the weather has stayed bad and to make things worse I was ill for the past week.

So yesterday we braved the elements and wrapped up warm to at least visit the Frankfurt Christmas Market. Last year I was critical of the high prices on some of the stalls, so I was interested to see if they had got any worse. I found out that it is easy to spend a lot of money on very little!


I also found out that Sunday evening was not the best time to go – it was absolutely full and there was little or no chance of taking a leisurely look at the stalls. You either went with the flow or got out of the way!


Listen to the podcast to find out more. Have you visited a Christmas Market this year?
