One day in Frankfurt, please help me plan our day

Jump to last reply

Hi, everyone -- thanks in advance for your help. I'll be spending a day in Frankfurt with my teenage daughter (her first time in Germany, my third). Both of us speak basic German. We have an 11-hour layover, which I figure comes down to about 6 hours of net time in the city.

Here's what we'd like to see in that time, but I'm having a hard time finding all these places on a map so I can plot out a course. What are your thoughts? I should add that this is not a "touristy" trip -- it's a budget trip all the way. We'd like to work history and education into the few hours we have there. We'll also be there on a Monday, so most of the museums we would ordinarily visit will be closed.

So here's what I think we can manage; feel free to add, change or rearrange (especially rearrange :-) ).

Altstadt / Roemerberg
Eisener Steg
Goethe-haus
Book burning memorial
Stumble stones
Holocaust memorial wall (esp. Anne Frank's memorial)
Oskar Schindler memorial plaque (by river?)
Book burning memorial
Euro sculpture
Eschenheimer Tor?
Hauptwache?
Zeil? (just to window-shop)
Alte Nikolai Dom? (for historical reasons, not religious)

For food, I've heard great things about Wacker Cafe, and I'm sure my daughter would also *love* to sample some wurst from a street vendor along the way. Meals will need to be simple and inexpensive, but not so desperate that we'd stoop to American fast food places (blecchh).

Thoughts? Thanks -- I appreciate your help.
