Extra Days in Frankfurt--any ideas, Mainhattengirl or others?

Jump to last reply

All you guys who helped me plan my two weeks of day trips mostly using my RailPass while hubby works near Frankfurt were spot on and I have had a blast although I'm pretty tired. I visited on my own the Rhine twice (Rüdesheim, Rheinfels, Rheinstein), Mainz for half a day, Speyer, Heidelberg, Marburg, Ashaffenburg, Frankfurt, Köln ; hubby and I went to Trier, Luxembourg, Wartburg, and Frieburg. And now, surprise, hubby must work longer and I am staying and looking for ideas of places to go. (He will take me to the Mosel Valley and Burg Elz later and maybe Bamberg.)

I've never been a position like this before, but here goes--mainhattengirl, would you be interested in a Fodortie GTG?

And where should I go? I am definitely going back to Frankfurt probably twice and hit the museums; I have one day left of my RailPass and may use it for Bamberg; my day to Büdingen got sorta cancelled or postponed because of rail problems so I will want to go there. As of this typing (on a German hotel keyboard so am having some issues!) I will go to Weisbaden. I may go back to Mainz as I loved it and only had half a day there. I have 9 more days to travel. I think I am going to prefer to not spend tons of more train tickets, so am looking at where I can go in Hesse/RMV service area and use day cards (or maybe their week card--looking into that.) And I might go to Bad Homburg for half a day and then back to Höchst (we ate there and looked around and took pics but I could spend a bit more time there.)

I am being dropped off at the Frankfurt Höchst train station between 7 and 7:30 and prefer to be back there by 18:00.

Ideas, anyone? And yes I am working on my trip report but won't post it until I get back to the states and can edit it more easilý on a familiar computer.

Limited access to internet to check the Forum, but I will look as often as I can.

Thanks in advance. And hope to hear from Mainhattengirl with your ideas for sure! I have grown to really like Frankfurt already.
