Frankfurt in 7 hours

Ever wondered what can you do in Frankfurt during long transit hours? Do not waste your time in the airport. Visiting and sightseeing around Frankfurt is relatively easy. First and foremost, purchase a day trip ticket for 8 Euros. Hop onto the S-Bahn train S8 headed to Hanau or the S9 headed to Offenbach Ost.

First recommended itinerary, will be at the 'Taunusanlage' station which will take only 10 minutes from the Frankfurt international airport.

a) Main Tower

From 'Taunusanlage' Station, we shall start with a visit to the Main Tower. The Main Tower is a suitable place to have an overview of the financial city of Frankfurt. The entrance fee cost Euro 6.50.

St. Catherine Church @ Frankfurt, Germany

As a part of my short transit at Frankfurt and a church architecture lover, I have decided to visit this old church which was situated behind the Hauptwache Guardhouse cafe. This church which was built in the 17th century is the largest Lutheran church in Frankfurt am Main.

Dining in Hauptwache (18th century Guardhouse) Cafe in Frankfurt Germany

While walking around the square, I came across this old building named "Hauptwache" which means main guardhouse in German. Originally the Hauptwache cafe which was built in the year 1730 was a military HQ when Frankfurt was still an independent state. Later on, it became a police station and a prison until 1904 which was used as what we could see till today, the Hauptwache café. (Source: Wikipedia, 2014). Since I will only be in the city for only few hours, why not I take the opportunity to have some light dining in this old yet cool cafe?

Flight Experience on Lufthansa Airlines: Nonstop You

During my business trip to Rio de Janeiro, I had the opportunity to fly on Lufthansa airlines for the very first time. Basically, Lufthansa airlines is the largest airlines in Europe and the five founding members of Star Alliance. The routes I flew on Lufthansa airlines were Bangkok-Franfurt (one way) and Franfurt-Rio de Janeiro (two ways). My review will be based on these two routes.

Bangkok-Franfurt Route
The Bangkok-Franfurt flight was served by the newly reburbished Airbus A340-300

Fly Thai Airways: As Smooth As Silk

The first time I flew with Thai Airways was 7 years ago in the year 2007 to Tokyo, Japan followed by my flight back to Penang, Malaysia after my graduation in Bangkok in the following year. It was a mixed experience then at that time with pleasant and delayed flight. Nevertheless, I wish for another flight experience with Thai Airways and here we are, flight to Bangkok and Franfurt in a shared air-code flight with Lufthansa airlines as the Star Alliance Partnership. 

Short Haul International Flight

The return flight from Penang to Bangkok on Thai Airways used the Boeing 737-400. I was very delighted to be on plane with bright, colorful and comfortable seat
