Since I wrote first I have found we are not going to that area but instead Tubingen near Hanau. I am finding out this is a senic, area to visit and there is a zoo and castle nearby also. Could anyone point me in the local hotels to stay at? We have been advised to rent a car to better enjoy viewing the area. I am thinking we would do this at Frankfurt airport. Any suggestions? Also I believe it is about a 30 minute drive. What are the roads like? Highway mostly? How congested is the driving? I am having a hard time finding hotels in Tubingen. How far away are most hotels located. I am thinking a 10 mile drive each day (we are going to be going to Tubingen each day. Thanks.
