Had no idea where to get the key so I jumped the fence. Pretty short and easy to climb. Sometimes you have no choice.
But first try to be a mentch.
i was thinking of making a copy of the key once they gave it to me and give it out to anyone that is going . ( imagine the look on their face , when they ask u how you Gotin ,, and u simply pull your key out  ... )

25-30 minutes by train. See google maps for exact directions.
Battonnstraße 2, 60311 Frankfurt, Germany
http://goo.gl/maps/gKrGf

Would anyone know what train to take from the airport, or a way to figure it out?

Is the old cemetery in close proximity to the "really" old cemetery?

I am going to be in FRA with a 14+ hour stopover.

Is it possible to visit the cemeteries in Frankfurt, Michelstadt, and Mainz/Worms in this time?

Is there any "must sees/ do" in this area?

Any Holocaust related sites?

I did, I might not have been fully awake when I did though...

I don't remember seeing about someone trying to go to all the cemeteries mentioned in 1 day. Also the only other thing mentioned I believe were some museums.

You should be able to piece together a plan by reading the thread, and yes it can be done in one day IMO.

+1. My point is not whether someone did all of them in one day.  All the places you mentioned were discussed at length in this thread, including their locations on the map, and how far they are from FRA etc.. now you can piece it together.

If you do it all, please report back!

In what order would you suggest I go with?
I am starting at FRA is it better to go to the local cemetery first or should we go for a drive first?
If I am trying to get to all these locations which way would you go?
Mainz
Worms
Michelstadt
or the opposite route?
Should be starting around 9 am.


I can't seem to find an address for the cemetery in Worms if anyone has that? Or I just need to get directions from the Rashi House Museum?

Frankfurt first, your last stop should be Michelstadt as you don't need a key to get into the cemetery.

Just a reg lounge. As opposed to the FRA first lounge?
Not sure what terminal she's flying through.
