I've poked around on here and other sites,and have an idea of some of the things I'd like to (try)do. I'm wondering if those who have had similar layovers,or the experts,can advise me on the best way to organize the sights,or if things are too far out of the way to see during the time allowed.
I'm going to be on a layover on a Monday,arriving at (I think) terminal 1 at 530am. My outbound flight leaves at 345pm(European destination) from Terminal 1 or 2. I will have just a carry on to store at the left luggage.
I have gathered that Hauptwache is the main place for a layover,and would like to see,but what is there specifically to see?Shops,restaurants,pubs,etc? I would like to walk along the river,if there is a riverwalk,and go up the Main Tower.
A few other sights that caught my interest are the Wertheim House,Old Opera House,and Eschenheim Tower.Are any of these possible to fit in the day?How much are each of these attractions,and what subway routes/walking paths would I take to get to any?
Last but not least,I have someone that collects wineglasses from various places(with the places name on it),which are usually quite hard to find.I told her the odds of finding one in Frankfurt were next to impossible,but would try to get a beer glass-any suggestions on where to get one?
Thanks for any/all tips. i'm usually eager to plot everything out myself,but having limited time,and no german language skills whatsoever,I can use any tips!
