I am visiting my sister in Frankfurt Germany and I want to buy a prepaid card with calling time, SMS and mainly Internet. I saw the other replies but the sites that were posted from other users are all in German language. Any ideas guys? I prefer to have the micro sim card delivered to our home.

Just to clarify, do you want the sim delivered to your sister's place in Germany, or your place abroad before you set off? –  Gagravarr Dec 16 '13 at 10:24
Fonic (and probably many others) offers prepaid micro sim cards with free delivery –  Dirty-flow Dec 16 '13 at 11:14

Lebara's website is available completely in English, as it's marketed to immigrants and offers cheap international calls. The national and data plans are more expensive than those offered by other discount providers like Simyo, Blau and Fonic, but still reasonable.

However, they will deliver the SIM card only to German residential addresses. I doubt whether you can find any alternative that does not require this, since it's mandated by German law that all SIM cards must be registered with the buyer's address.

On most German supermarkets you can alredy by a Prepaid-SIM card. There are also offers with access to internet avaialble. I really recommend to try to translate the German webpages. E.g. in such cases.

There in fact is a supermarket at/on the airport - it is named "Rewe" and located in the airport train station for long-distance trains ("Fernbahnhof"). One might have luck to get a SIM card there. The problem is that you need internet access to activate the SIM card, which however is available in the terminal building. You need an already-working foreign SIM card to receive the SMS with the Internet activation code, though. –  DCTLib Feb 24 '14 at 14:40
Maybe an advantage: At the REWE there is cheep food (for trainstation and airport) available ;) –  frlan Feb 24 '14 at 15:59
