It's FRA. Most airlines go there, You should get a good connection anywhere.

And You also have the busiest apt of Germany as a playground...

As You obviously plan a trip to Sinsheim - don't miss the museum's branch in Speyer! AN22, Dassault Mercure, and the by now famous 742...it's about half an hour away from Sinsheim, actually a bit closer to FRA...to reach the famous spotter's platform near rwy18 You might want to have a car or a cab, it's a bit to walk...so try to find "sixti", it's a LCC-type of rental cars, You will get a Smart for 5€ a day, Focus Wagon for 8€ (weekends cost a bit more)...just in case money does matter...if not, You can rent a SL500...

STR would be longer driving, probably about an hour, maybe a bit more, also is the less interesting apt compared to FRA.
Baden-Baden could be an alternative if You're coming in on FR, but there are hardly any flights, so maybe difficult to get a connection, but it's for sure closer than Hahn, FR's Germany hub #1....

Have fun!

Thanks for the replies.
car rental does look like a good option, but why rent a Merc when i am leaving a perfectly good RR behind!!!
Looking forward to the trip. and thanks for the input about the other site

It seems that there are no LCC that dly to FRa. Ryanair goes to Hahn, but you say that is quite a distance away?
How much?
Thanks

Hahn is more than an hour away from FRA. And it's the opposite direction of Sinsheim.
Check out the LH fares. They have some ridiculous low fares. I saw a fare from FRA to London City Apt. for €42,- plus Taxes. Not sure about the other direction.

Hahn is about an hour away from FRA, I think.
I don't know, what Your next apt would be, so I can hardly give You hints, which airline is interesting.
My experience is, that sometimes it's about as cheap (or than in a "package") to fly normal carrier.
I found some good BA fares when seeking a flight to LHR, I also know about special offers from LH.
Depending on what the trip should be like, saving time by flying directly to the wished destination, saving cash by not renting a car, ar whatsoever..., sometimes it's interesting to pay a 50 more than on LCC and get a better package after all...FRA itself is a busy apt, so there are not too many services from LCCs.
I could advise You to visit statravel.com and try to find a good fare in there.
