You will be the last off the plane. Do you have time? Frankfurt is easy to get around.

We do have time but I think we will just follow the crowd. Usually the help that deals with wheelchairs knows exactly how to manage the airport quickly. We are able to walk but just thought wheelchairs would be more efficient. Thanks for the info. Other posts indicate Frankfurt airport is huge and you go thru immigration and security etc. We will be on LRA from Chicago to Prague so we may be in the same terminal. Any suggestions on how to navigate quickly?

When you get off the flight in Frankfurt you will have to do immigration and security again. It is a big airport but everything is clearly marked. If you take a wheelchair you won't be able to stop and shop along the way. I have to get my pretzel bread with the ham and cheese baked on top. Last time I connected there it was very easy.

When you say "clearly marked" do you mean in German and/or English? Last time we were in Munich we couldn't find anyone who spoke English or any signs to direct us.

Presumably, the last time you were in Munich was 75 years ago or so.

Like Frankfurt, all informational signs in Munich are in German and English, and anyone in a Lufthansa uniform will speak German and English (at the very least).

Frankfurt is a huge airport, and some connections can easily take 30-45 minutes, especially if you have to go between Halls. No real way to know that in advance, though.
