    Frankfurt Layover

    I'll be transiting through Frankfurt late next month. I get in at about 7 in the morning and depart at 2 in the afternoon. This looks like a long time to kill sitting in a departure lounge, so I'm wondering if it's practical to get out of the airport and go into town. I'd be into just having brunch and a nosey around.

    Any tips for strolls and bread rolls?
    Pues, aquí estamos.

    I stayed overnight in Frankfurt once (between business trips around Germany; a week away covering Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt and Cologne), shite industrial city, and my hotel was the kinda standard 4* business traveller place - the bar was full of ladies offering their services. I didn't speak to any of them...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Schnell Imbiss are the words you are looking for. If they have a Stamtisch, avoid it.

    I recommend Jaeger Schnitzel. If you order it with fries let them know if you like mayo on yours or not.

    Had a stag weekend there around 2005.

    Lots of Eros centers, and a few lively bars full of messed up young American lads on a few days off from blowing up/being blown up by Iraqis.

    Outside of the few bars was dead come 7pm.


    I doubt it's changed much.

    Who chooses the Business City of Frankfurt for a stag do?.........and doesn't remember the date?

    Wasn't it Frankfurt where you had a 12 hour stopover on your 'European Grand Tour' a couple of years ago?

    Does anyone know what happened to this Auroria guy?

    He has been there before and had an 11 hour stopover in Frankfurt around the same time Luigi went on his European Tour, coincidentally enough. A great Lulu-esque prostitute anecdote too

    10 minutes to search Teakdoor.com Luigi Frankfurt stopover and the other 19 minutes copy and pasting whilst wiping away streams of tears thinking of you getting turned over by that hooker, mugged, jumping over barriers, getting the wrong train and boarding a plane with one shoe.

    I'm still crying

    Think he was hacked to death at a pool-party.

    No idea how he could have wound anyone up, to be honest.

    My Thought Processes:

    1. What's this, a thread about a Frankfurt layover?

    2. Not really relevant to me I'm not travelling there and know nothing about the place

    3. Mind, that might actually be a reason to read the thread I might learn something...

    4. ...

    5. Auroria? Flabby hookers? Drinking out of shoes??

    6. What the actual fuck has just happened!?

    7. I need a cup of tea...

    And the perils that lurk in the local park with the Romas if you're a Pikey

    By the time you clear immigration and to get back in time, you'll only have 3-4 hours max to kill, if you get on the train going the right way

    Going by Auroria's trip report, I'd stay in the airport and have a wank in the My Cloud Transit Hotel

    Its nearly €300 for that though

    Here's the other option, Luroria's too shy to tell you about
