    I'll be spending about 9 days in Frankfurt, Germany for business, and will have an open weekend. Any suggestions as to what to do? Thanks

    I'll be reading this with interest, myself. I have a trip planned in the future and am looking at a Rhine River cruise and a day trip to Heidelberg among other things.

    Heidelberg is worth the trip - the trains are excellent in terms of getting around.

    Gothe's house is interesting to see and it is right downtown.

    Rhine River tour - excellent choice, lots of castles but the wine...........not my favorite.
