12 hours at Frankfurt Airport - what to do?

I have a 12 hour layover in Frankfurt Airport on route back to South Africa. Unfortunately not traveling under a Schengen Visa so I cannot leave the airport and I'm only Economy Class.

Any suggestions as to how to pass the time? I'm arriving at 09h35 in the morning and only fly out again at 22h05 which makes it a decidedly long day! I've never been through this airport before so I don't know what options are available to me. Is there a lounge that I can pay to get in?

Thanks

Durban, South Africa

If Rajas if from S. Africa, he will need a visa to leave the airport. Stuck behind security, all you can do is shop, eat, or go to a lounge.

There is a shower available to the public for about 8 Euros.
