Frankfurt - Post Report Question and Answers

What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

The Christmas markets were magical, and the children also enjoyed the Kürbis festivals all over town. We visited what felt like a million castles, but the best was getting the chance to stay overnight in one. I believe my children will never forget that experience. Legoland is worth the trip, and the trip to see the mud flats in the North Sea coast was awesome. - Oct 2022
