I am trying to do the logistics from Frankfurt Airport to Heidelberg. I will be travelling by train with my 13 years old daughter.
On our way, we’d like to visit also Mainz (or possibly Wiesbaden?). I believe that I have figured out how to do it on the DBAHN Site, using stopovers. As I understand the standard ticket gives us FULL flexibility on the stopover duration, is this right?
On Mainz we have the option to choose either Hauptbahnhof or Roemisches Theater Station, which are, as I understand it, equally convenient for a leisure scroll around the city centre. Do both stations have lockers so to store our luggages and are there easy to find? Is there any other advantage of one over the other station?
The train fare covers the transport between FRA Airport-Mainz- Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof. From there we would need another ride to the apartment in which we will be staying. I suppose that for this one we would need to buy another ticket. Is there any other option to enable us get a combined ticket, ie to cover the cost for the transport within Heidelberg?
And finally, is seating Reservation required for the Mainz to Heidelberg leg of the journey?
