Return flights to Frankfurt Hahn from £13.98 with Ryanair
I don't recommend Ryanair flights often, given their reputation for subpar customer service, alleged poor treatment of aircraft crew and lack of a points based reward scheme, but you can't deny that they offer some extraordinary fares from time to time. In January I flew with them to Oslo for £9.98 return, courtesy of their Black Friday sale, and I couldn't fault the experience.
While clicking around today, I've found decent availability for flights to Frankfurt Hahn from £6.99 one way throughout June and July. That makes a return flight just £13.98 if you forgo a reserved seat and checked baggage. If you want to ensure you're seated with your travel companions, seats can be reserved from £4 each way, bringing the total to a respectable £21.98. No other airline comes close.
Let's look at a concrete example. If you can fly midweek, all the better:
London Stansted > Frankfurt Hahn | Tue 19th June > Thurs 21st June | Return | hand luggage only
Outbound: Departs Stansted at 7:30am, arrives Frankfurt Hahn at 9:33am
Inbound: Departs Frankfurt Hahn at 6:30am, arrives London Stansted at 6:50am
Here is the booking screen:
The flight times aren't the best, and Hahn is over an hour from Frankfurt central, but you'll get two decent days to explore the city. Accommodation is relatively inexpensive. You could pick up a central Airbnb for around £55 per night (plus get £15 off if you join Airbnb via this invitation link). So if you're looking for a flying visit to Germany within the next month or two, check out Ryanair now!
Centrally located in Germany, this European business and commercial hub hides a charming, medieval town (Altstadt) within its borders.
Frankfurt is a traditional, picturesque city when you look beyond the towers of glass that make up its business district. Wander its streets and find chic bistros, cafes, bars and coffee shops. Search out fine dining restaurants and take in its vibe by visiting the galleries, boutiques and local street art.
