Depositing your Winter Coat at Frankfurt Airport

As travel towards warmer destinations are sure to pick up again during this winter season, handling a heavy coat on flights isn’t what most of us enjoy.

The Frankfurt Airport offers to keep your coat in its luggage deposit room for a daily fee of 50 cents. This service will run until spring break 2015.

There are three luggage deposit rooms (Gepäckaufbewahrung), see locations below:


• Terminal 1, Bereich B, Ebene 1 (Ankunft), täglich 24 Stunden geöffnet, Telefon (069) 690-70786;

Terminal 1, Hall B, Level 1 (arrivals), 24-hour coat check-in

• Terminal 1, Bereich B – C, Ebene 2 (Abflug), täglich von 6 bis 22 Uhr geöffnet, Telefon (069) 690-73277;

Terminal 1, Hall B – C, Level 2 (departures), open daily from 6am – 10pm

• Terminal 2, Bereich D, Ebene 2 (Ankunft), täglich von 6 bis 22 Uhr geöffnet, Telefon (069) 690-72860.

Terminal 2, Hall D, Level 2 (arrivals), open daily from 6am – 10pm


If you do use this service, please remember to pick up your coat as well. Personal winter clothing items are only kept for three months, then they get auctioned off.


 Gute Reise!

(Have a good trip!)

Ordering Gingerbread Hearts from Germany

This afternoon, we will be attending a wedding at the Gherkin in London. Since the bride is German (with Sri Lankan heritage) and spent her childhood in the deutsche Vaterland, the goodie bag will be full of things to reminisce.

There will be an issue of the Teen magazine BRAVO, some cans of beer, her favorite pastries from the local bakery, and this Lebkuchenherz (gingerbread heart) below.

I ordered it from a German company (see link below) and it arrived within 10 days. The total cost was 26 euro and it’s worth it.


The bride is a hopeless romantic and I’m sure she will enjoy this. They do deliver overseas, so if you are interested to learn more about these customized Lebkuchen hearts, then visit for more information.

The company offers hearts for all kinds of occasions.

Review for Restaurant Ratskeller in Oberursel

On our son’s big day (graduating from Frankfurt International School), we chose the restaurant Ratskeller in Oberursel to have our ceremonial dinner there with friends and family.

Restaurant Ratskeller in Oberursel  (entry through the gate)

We had made early reservations for 6:00 and seven people. My brother and husband chose the Ochsenbäckchen (ox cheeks/ox jowls), which were excellent. So was our Argentine beef steak, served with potato gratin and sauteed vegetables. The portions look rather small at first glance, but they are filling.

I had even withheld a bit on the bread basked (fresh and delicious) which came with a garlic dip. I could have had a couple more slices…

The service was excellent and we felt like we were regulars. Well, our friends are regulars there, so their presence made for a casual atmosphere.

The interior is rustic, but quaint. Watch for the small steps throughout the restaurant though!

The prices range from fair to high, but you get what you pay for. The food quality is superb (fresh vegetables, good choice of meat, etc). But with four people in our family, I would not be able to take them there on a regular basis, only for special occasions.

By the time we left two hours later, the garden tables were all occupied.

This restaurant is very recommendable!
