"Hi, I will be traveling to Maintal for about a week in January. I am wondering if there are places of interest I can travel to by train (or bus) from there. My husband will be working and I want to go off and see the sights. I would travel to neighboring countries as well if it is inexpensive and not too far. Can you help? Thanks so much, Ellie" (posted 12/29/2014)

Hi Elli, thanks for your request. There are a lot of sights in the neighborhood Especially in Frankfurt Which is 15 minutes by train from our apartment. Museum, theater, hostorical sites like the big Church "Dom" or the old Roman Wall (Limes) in the closeby mountains or the old Castle of Ronneburg (about 1 hour by car). But don't forget, it's winter in Germany ans the walk through the town might get a bit uncomfortable. Hope this helped a litte! Kind regards from Michael fewo-frankfurt.de
