Day Trip from Frankfurt

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Frankfurt am Main for about a week in late October for business. I have a couple of days for personal travel while there and would like to take some day trips out of the city, as I've already been to Frankfurt many times. I'm looking for places not too far away (within 2.5 hours max train ride). I love history and when I got to a place I generally like to wander the town square, peek inside the main church(es), and maybe see a museum or two. A castle tour would also be appealing. I'm also into photography so picturesque settings are a plus (not hard to find in Germany!).

I have all the guidebooks but what I'm really interested in are any tips about hidden gems or small towns that may not be on most tourists' radars. The only caveat is I need to be able to get there easily by train, and preferably also reach the city center by walking rather than taxi.

I plan on a 1/2 day in Idstein, so I have two other days free. One is a Sunday, unfortunately. Will anything be open in Germany on Sundays?

I had hoped to visit a concentration camp memorial/museum during this trip, but haven't heard of anything in western Germany, other than Hadamar, which appears to be in German only. If anyone has any suggestions for WWII history in this area, that would be of great interest.

And finally, with 3 days of train travel, with some flexibility required, what is my best option in terms of train tickets? I can't decide if a rail pass or just buying the tickets for each day trip individually makes more sense (need to look into this more once the destinations are final though).

Thanks!
