A few weekends ago, Alice and I travelled to Frankfurt for a few days away – the first we’ve had since Venice at the start of 2013. We booked a simple holiday package through British Airways that gave us two nights in a hotel just outside Frankfurt (the NH Niederrad) and time to explore and relax.
Apart from BA managing to leave our baggage in London (though they did fly it out pretty quickly) the trip was relaxing and had the desired effect – to get some time away from computers. The NH does have wifi and in-room wired internet, but it isn’t particularly quick or reliable. For the purposes of this trip though, it was ideal.
Frankfurt is a fantastic place to explore, and while it’s Christmas market isn’t one of the ones everyone talks about, it is still pretty impressive – it sort of sprawls around the centre of Frankfurt (we found it entirely by accident) and just seems to keep going.
Hopefully after Christmas I’ll have more time to post about Frankfurt, the Christmas Markets, and our hotel.
