Where to go near Frankfurt Airport

edited February 2009 in - General Europe
In the middle of march of 2009 I will have a layover of approximately 4 1/2 HRS @ Frankfurt Airport. I would like to go somewhere close to the airport where I can get something to eat and drink some beer, and perhaps do a little sightseeing. Can anyone help me with addresses and locations ?
Thank you,

    Do you have 4 1/2 hours excluding re checking in for your flight? Frankfurt is a really busy airport. The good news is Weisbaden is close circa 30 mins away and much nicer, friendlier and walkable that FRA.

    Thanks Kim,
    Are you from Germany ? You know the area well ?
    The last time I lived there was in 1976-1978. I went to High School in Karsuhe.So its been awhile. I really like Germany. I might take a couple days this year to go back and see everything again. I came through Frankfurt on a layover a couple of weeks ago, but didnt have time to go out and see anything.
    Thank you for your response. If you come up with good ideas on places to eat, see, take pictures,(drink beer) keep me posted, please.

    We are traveling in late April with two adults and two kids. We will have a 6 to 7 hour layover in either Munich or Frankfurt. Any recommendations and suggestions on where we could go and the best way to travel back and forth from the airport. Also, will we have to carry our luggage or would we be able to check it in? Any helpful information will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Reggie
