I don't think there's even a question, Vienna.  It's a very historic city, with a much larger and more active [observant] Jewish community.  Frankfurt, although a historic city as well, seems to serve more as a thriving modern metropolis.  It doesn't have nearly as much historic importance as Vienna.

in a 12 hr stop, he might prefer to go to worms, michelstadt and the beis hakvaros of fra rather than getting an extremely limited exposure of vienna.

its a matter of preferences, so yes, there is a question

Thinking about using him. Do you now anyone who used him? Were they satisfied? Reasonably priced?

Anyone know if the much publicized (in 2011) Kosher vending machines are still there in the FRA airport?

Drive to Worms is 1 hour.
Consider spending there an hour.
So total time is 3 hours out of airport.

Bump...anyone??  Alternatively, is there other Kosher food now available in the airport?

Has anyone rented the  porsche as part of the LH F deal and go to Rashi museum in worms? Looks like the porsche deal is only for 3 hours, if you have done the Porche deal where have you gone?, looks very tempting and what better way to go to mekomos hakdoishem in style then with a porsche.
What time does the rashi museum open? My flight arrives from JFK at 530am and departs to HND @620PM  but would like to spend the day in the FCT.

DDF user mclovin recently did the porsche rental. PM him for details.

I think 3 hours is perfectly good.
FRA to Worms is a 1 hour drive, and no need to spend in Worms more than 1 hour. So that leaves you with an hour to drive back to the airport.

Rashi museum is open from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

How long were you out with the porsche? 150 KM doesn't seem like it would take all that long.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
