Daytrips/Excursions from Frankfurt

Jump to last reply

My OH is going for a 3 day conference in Frankfurt in September, and for once he knows about it with enough notice for me to find a decent rate and time to plan my own work schedule out so that I can tag along. As this is a sudden trip for me (2.5 months notice is sudden for a planner like myself), I'm trying to decide what to do both the 1.5 days before the conference starts and in the four days we will have afterwards before flying home. And if anyone has ideas for my three days on my own while he conferences, please suggest. OH is not as into museums as I am, so I thought I would explore them in depth while I am on my own.

I've been to Germany twice before - first to Munich and Berlin as a college student, and again a decade or so ago to Munich, Rothenburg, Oberammergau and the Romantic Road. While I love Munich, it looks like Oktoberfest would be going on while we are there and while that might seem like a bucket list item, the idea of such large drunken crowds leaves me rather numb. I mention all of this because I'm looking at doing different parts of Germany I haven't seen before.

We love castles, wine, and war sites. Doing some quick searches, the Rhine River sounds like a good place to start, but I'd love specifics on what people suggest/love, as well as other ideas. And if you think we are better off taking a quick flight/train somewhere else for the four days after his conference, please suggest away. ( We spent two weeks in Switzerland a few years back, so heading back there is not our first choice.)

Thanks in advance :)
