Frankfurt airport being one of the largest airports of Europe, most of the people travelling to Europe land up here. I was going to land in Frankfurt on a Saturday morning. My husband was coming to pick me up. It being a weekend, we planned to spend a day in Frankfurt before continuing our onward journey to Münster.
Public transport in Frankfurt is great. Subways and trams reach every corner of the city. The airport is huge. I arrived at terminal 2. From here we took an airport shuttle bus to terminal 1, where the airport subway station is located. We got a one day group pass at the station. The pass is really cheap and totally worth it. S8 and S9 lines connect the airport to the city. We took S8 to the city, checked into our hotel, freshened up and got back out to explore the city.
We were staying near subway station Ostbahnoff. From here we took U6 to Hauptwache. Hauptwache is the shopping hub of the city. Big shopping centres like Galleria Kaufhof and MyZeil are located here. This place has it all; from the spectacular architecture of MyZeil to the old world architecture of St. Catherine’s church. We spent some time exploring the shopping street and then headed to the top floor of Galleria Kaufhof. The top floor of Galleria Kaufhop houses a café with an amazing view of the city. After enjoying the city vistas we headed back down.
