Train information can be found at www.bahn.de , just change to English near the top of the page. It would be much cheaper traveling to an airport in Baden-Wuerttemberg, where Sinsheim is, than either the actual Frankfurt Airport or what Ryanair calls Frankfurt which is at Hahn. Stuttgart ( www.stuttgart-tourist.de ) is one such possibility with the discount carriers www.germanwings.com , www.tuifly.com , and www.airberlin.com . Ryanair also uses an airport by Baden-Baden. From either of these airports you can reach Sinsheim inexpensively with a Baden-Wuerttemberg day train ticket, 19€ single and 28€ for a group of from 2-5 people which covers all public transportation in this German state except the fast long distance IC, EC and ICE trains. Just click on "only local transportation" to see what is valid using this ticket.

Note that Sinsheim is also home to a large technical museum ( www.technik-museum.de ) that has both commercial supersonic civilian aircraft, and also Stuttgart has both the excellent Mercedes Benz and Porsche Museums.

DB timetable

From: Frankfurt Airport

From: Stuttgart Airport

From: Baden-Airpark

From: Heidelberg

To: Sinsheim Museum/Arena

The arena in Sinsheim has its own train stop. Together with the Technik Museum marcopolko already mentioned.

If you plan to fly with Ryanair to (Frankfurt-)Hahn Airport, you need to take the shuttle bus to Heidelberg from there.

Thanks for the info.

After a bit more research, it seems that Baden or Stuttgart are better destinations by air and the subsequent train links - I shall investiagte further with your helpful links
