A lot of worthy destinations are located within 1 - 1 1/2 h distance of Frankfurt am Main. I have more detailed tips on my "Frankfurt - off the beaten path"-page, so this is just a general overview:

What to see and do near Frankfurt:
- Kronberg, Königstein & Taunus area (castles and Kronberg Old Town)
- Bad Homburg (park and former imperial summer palace)
- Rheingau (Old Town of Eltville, monastery Eberbach, wine tasting)
- Fulda (cathedral)
- Schloss Fasanerie (baroque palace near Fulda-Eichenzell)
- Lahn-Dill region (churches in Limburg and Wetzlar; castle in Runkel; palace in Weilburg; canoeing on the Lahn)
- Odenwald (monastery in Lorsch; castle in Heppenheim)
- Sababurg (castle + zoo)
- Vogelburg (bird zoo near Bad Camberg)
- Saalburg (reconstructed roman fortress) in Neu-Anspach
- Open Air museum Hessenpark in Neu-Anspach
- Marburg (nice old town)
- Rhön (hiking in a beautiful hilly region; Open Air Museum Fladungen)
