Flying into Frankfurt

The airport in Frankfurt, Germany, is definitely one of the busiest airports in the world. We had flown through Frankfurt before heading there last fall, but really hadn’t given it a lot of thought. So, when we flew into Frankfurt for our extended stay, we took a few pictures from the plane upon approach. It really doesn’t do it justice as there are plenty of little hamlets that surround the city proper and the airport is far enough away from the actual city that you don’t really get good views of downtown. What you do get a sense for is the fact that the area around Frankfurt is covered in forests and rolling hills. Obviously not the dramatic scenery that we have here in Colorado, but it was definitely what we expected to see in Germany. We are flying up to Montana this weekend, but in our hearts we wish were flying back to Frankfurt. For this week’s Cee’s Which Way Challenge we decided to provide some photos of our approach into Frankfurt and what would become our home for half of a year.

  1. I love to take photos out of the airplane window… these are great, they show the country scenery in a way one cannot see from the ground.

  2. Hi! I’m going to Frankfurt for 3 days and I have Monday (tomorrow) free. Can you recommend one of your posts that has your top tips for what I should see and do? I’m looking for a stroll around, a cosy café, a restaurant with tasty regional food, a nice bar. I had hoped to go to the Städel Museum but it’s closed on Mondays.

    1. Sorry, we just saw your post. Strolling along the river is great. We would definitely recommend going to Old Town. We highly recommend The Brassiere by the old opera house and Alten Limpurg in Old Town to grab some good food.

  3. One of our favorite pubs in Old town is Alten Limpurg ☺ Sometimes you can see something unexpected when you go back and look at the photos ☺
