No, this isn't feasible. It will probably take you around 30 minutes to get off the plane and through immigration (and probably more if you're not an EU citizen). It's then about a 15-minute train ride into Frankfurt, and 15 minutes back, plus, say, another 10–15 minutes total waiting for the two trains. But you're recommended to be back at the airport ...

No, this is not a good idea. To extend on @DavidRicherby's answer. I just did this a couple of months ago, but on a 9 hour layover. From plane to train took a little over an hour and a half. I arrived at 8:50 in the morning and I know the train I took was right around 10:36. The lines were long and the place was quite crowded. Not only that but I had to ...

Simply put it's a bad idea and you'll probably not be able to do or see much even if you decided to go ahead and manage to pull it off. You have to consider all the time you'll spend leaving the airport, waiting for the train, travelling on the train, then multiply that by 2, because you want to return and get back on your connecting flight. Even ...

Here's an actual link to bahn.de for what you're looking for: Frankfurt Airport -> Karlsruhe Main Station leaving after 18:40 There's a train about once per hour. The trip itself takes just over an hour. Depending on which train you take, you might need to change trains in Mannheim. The "Umst." column shows how many train changes. If it says 0 then the ...

Yes, there are trains to Karlsruhe departing from the airport's long-distance station (Fernbahnhof) every hour or so. You'll likely have to transfer to a different train once you get to Mannheim. For exact times and routes, go to bahn.de and search for trains going from "Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf" to "Karlsruhe Hbf".

The Berlin City library (ZLB) is different than the State Library (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin) that you mentioned. The English pages of both should give a general idea of the conditions of most public libraries. For the Staatsbibliothek, fees have been abolished for the next 2 years, but registration is still needed. As a general rule, if a book does not ...

C and Z are unfortunately on opposite sides of Terminal 1, so it is quite a bit of a hike. Exact walking time depends on gate location (Z is very long) and your walking speed. I'd say 15-20 minutes. Your best shot is probably to take the airside section of the SkyLine https://www.frankfurt-airport.com/en/travel/transfer.detail.suffix.html/article/travel/...

As a Pakistani citizen you would need a Schengen Visa to enter Germany. As a Canadian resident you can apply for it at a German consulate in Canada, but you still need a Visa. https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/germany-visa/canada/

Depends. Typically the airline will you happily check you in as long as a counter is open regardless of when your flight is leaving. If you were flying Lufthansa, you check in anytime since there is always a counter open. Unfortunately it looks like there is only one Korean flight from FRA per day, so you can't "piggy back" on an earlier flight. Most ...

You arrived from Slovenia, which, like Germany, is in the Schengen area, a group of countries which have largely abolished border controls between each other. For the purpose of border control, you were effectively on a domestic flight. You'll go through (exit) passport control when you leave the Schengen area. Here they'll check how long you've been in the ...

Since both legs are on the same ticket, your bags will be checked through to Newark, and to Amsterdam on the way home. You can check with the check-in agent that this has been done, in both cases. When you're travelling on one ticket, bags are almost always checked through. One semi-exception to this is that, if you were taking an internal flight in the US, ...

That's not really feasible. A 3-hour layover is much too short, and the airport is FAR from downtown. Public transport is not like hopping in a Zipcar, there's a lot of fooling around and waiting. And, things can go wrong - one mistake or delayed train and you're out an expensive air ticket. I wouldn't have attempted it before 9/11 on a domestic flight. ...

In this page you have the airport information. It seems that you need a receipt but maybe you can call to one of these numbers and they can find a solution of you: Terminal 1, between Concourses B and C, Level 2 (Departures), open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., phone +49 69 690 73277 Terminal 1, Concourse B, Level 1 (Arrivals), open daily 24/7 hours, ...

This question gives details of what kind of visa you are need to transit the Schengen area. A Canadian visa helps you only if it is valid, which yours us not. You need to apply for a Schengen transit visa.

Have a look at this map: https://www.bergfex.de/deutschland/ As you can see there are two really small ski areas in the Taunus mountain range right next to Frankfurt. But the chances of them being open while you are there are essentially 0. Note that those small areas would also usually only be open on weekends. So this leaves you with a bit of travel. If ...
