That would be FRA - either around 30 minutes by public transport, or just about the same time by car (and now you're free to guess why I wouldn't even take a car if I had one...  Wink ... completely unnecessary in Frankfurt - thank goodness for that!!!).

If you ever fly into FRA (especially when it's dark), you'll see a tower north of town that has several rows of magenta lights at the top... you can see it just behind/to the right of the winglet in this picture - I live just a bit east of that tower...
