Any Aviation Museums Near Frankfurt?

Sat Aug 27, 2011 8:11 pm

Hi all,

I'm in Frankfurt for a couple of weeks. Are there any decent aviation museums nearby (say: up to an hour or so by train) with good photo opportunities? I haven't managed to find anything with google.

Regards,

Tony

Speyer and Sinsheim. Both excellent.

Thanks Viv! I'll only have one day free to it's a tough choice between the two! That Buran looks awfully attractive though!

If you are interested in the planes only you could easily visit both museums on one day as they are not too far apart.

Stefan,

Can I rely on trains? Or will I need a rental car?

Hi Tony,

that's what a quick research on the Deutsche Bahn website brought up:

Frankfurt Flughafen - Sinsheim Museum/Arena: 09:20 - 11:10 (2 transfers) fares starting at 19,00 €
Sinsheim Museum/Arena - Speyer Hauptbahnhof 14:46 - 16:30 (1 transfer) local trains
Speyer Hauptbahnhof - Frankfurt Flughafen 20:17 - 22:06 (2 transfers) fares starting at 19,00 €

I would definitely have a look at the rental rates

Yep, we'll be renting a car for the weekend so I'll keep it for Monday too.   I'll start with Speyer and I'll play it by ear. Thanks for all your help Stefan and Viv.
