Long layover has its perks. It means i get to go out of the airport and do a bit of exploring ! Also, make sure it’s daytime so you don’t get lost!
i did a little bit of research to see how far the airport was from the actual city center.. with a little google-ing looks like lots of people have long layovers in Frankfurt
and there are actually tours
tailored to this !
i actually didn’t go on the tour…and i bravely trusted a stranger that was on the same flight as me to spend my layover with. he has been in Frankfurt before and we both ended up training out to city center together. Just follow the signs that leads to the train at the bottom of the airport. We somehow ended up getting off at Frankfurt(M)Hauptwache and walked over towards the canal.

we were caught in a sudden thunderstorm and waited in the cathedral until it stopped
