Two stopovers in Frankfurt... and counting?

I have now been in Frankfurt twice -- always under special circumstances.

The first time, our Austrian Airlines return flight from Vienna to Montreal got cancelled a mere 90 minutes before departure time. In a stroke of fortune, we managed to get tickets to Frankfurt the very same night. We slept in a 4- or 5-star hotel (with supper and breakfast included), courtesy of Austrian Airlines, before leaving for Montreal the following afternoon. We jumped at the opportunity to visit downtown Frankfurt in the morning, since we had a couple of hours to kill.

The second time, flying with Lufthansa, we had a 14-hour stopover in Frankfurt on our way from Montreal to Tunis. Fortunately, on this occasion, we had the opportunity to prepare ourselves ahead of time and found some Hundertwasser architecture to visit before heading back to the Romer district.

Since Frankfurt's airport is such a major air traffic hub, it would come as no surprise if we had to go through this city again!

    Glad you enjoyed your first two visits here in Frankfurt am Main. And congratulations on finding your way to that hidden Hundertwasser kindergarten. (Have a look at my Magdeburg page for Hundertwasser's last project before his death.)
