Days in Europe are march 30-april 16. Travelling with wife and 4 year old.
I would skip Frankfurt. I've been there upteen times connecting or on business and there is nothing particularly interesting-we leveled thd place in WWII. Compared to Strasbourg and some of the places in the Alsace or if you visited the Loire Valley in France...much better use of time. Frankfurt has a big airport and a convenient connecting train station, but thats about it. Their old town "Sachsehaussen" is weak. Its like coming to the US and targeting Dallas as a must see city. At the risk of drawing the ire of some board members and unless you are a modern office building aficionado, I recommend that you skip it.
