Do you travel by car or bus, and would you like to stay close to the Autobahn or is driving into a town some kilometers away from the Autobahn OK?

Bus or a 20 car convoy?

If you are travelling by bus, I am sure the driver will know of somewhere that can cater for this number of people ... have you checked with the bus company?

Do I understand correctly - you arrive in Frankfurt at 9.30, then you want to drive to Leipzig and be back in Frankfurt by 14.00 the same day? This is impossible.

Or is it arriving in Leipzig by 14.00? This is doable but very tight. You cannot rely on clear roads. For lunch, the roadhouses along the highway are the only option because of your time restrictions. Do not expect good restaurants there, though. A group this size (two busloads as a standard coach seats about 50 people) will require a reservation.

Oh I am sorry !! you are right i arrive at F'furt at 0930 & have to reach Leipzig by 1400 hrs,

with regards to the road houses you think they can mange 80 - 90 people if we do our reservation with them in prior ? & just in case we need to move our buses in one of the city for good restaurant - approximately how much should it cost & apppro how much time will it take driving from F'furt to Leipzig inclusive of lunch time ..

The distance is roughly 400 kms. Due to the speed limit for buses you are in theory facing a driving time of about 4:30 hours if the roads are clear, which they rarely are. Every congestion, traffic jam, construction site will add more time, also add time for the necessary stops the driver has to make. In other words, you have zero time for a lunch break and you'll hardly make it in time.

Also this is impossible.

With 80-90 persons you should be happy if you can leave Frankfurt Airport by bus 1,5 hours after arrival. Thus at 11:00.

Travel time by bus is 4,5 hours. Plus the compulsory 0,5 h break. And without any traffic problems.

Thus your earliest theoretical possible arrival time is around 16:00. More realistic is to expect something towards 17:00. And with a lunch break it will be towards 18:00.

Most can do this easily without any advanced reservation. The service stations along the autobahns are normally self service.

Restaurants which accept buses haven often an own menu for bus groups. Here I found one in German and English

italienisches-doerfchen.de/CMS/tinymce/jscri…

Note that beverages are extra. To offer free tap water is in Germany not common at all.

.

But you really HAVE TO talk with the bus companies on this. If we do a tour for a group by bus we always ask for the recommendations of the bus company on things like routing and where to stop/eat. And we nearly always stick to these.

If 9:30 is indeed the time your plane lands, not the time you are ready to leave the airport, the situation is indeed even more complicated. There is only one way: adjusting your group's schedule to reality, i.e. postponing your scheduled arrival time in Leipzig to no earlier than 18.00.
