Ready to go to Mexico – flight from Frankfurt to Mexico City

We started with the S-Bahn to Stuttgart main station and continued with the ICE to Frankfurt main station.

After check-in Lufthansa brought us with a Boeing 747 from Frankfurt to Mexico City on time. During the landing approach we could enjoy the wonderful view of the sea of houses in the city. Because the plane had to take off during the first landing approach due to gusts of wind, we had a second chance to enjoy the view of the 29 million inhabitants of Mexico City.

Welcome Mexico City

Flight from Frankfurt to Mexico City

After arrival we tried to get to the passport control quickly. After a few meters we had to join a never ending queue. The passport control was still out of sight. We had the impression that “half the world” wanted to visit Mexico. After what felt like an eternity we could finally pick up our suitcases.
At the exit we were picked up by a driver of the travel organization. He brought us safely to our hotel Historico Central.
The hotel is located in the district Centro in the Calle de Bolívar 28. The Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts) and the Catedral Metropolitana de la Ciudad de México (Cathedral of Mexico City) were within walking distance. Immediately after checking in at the hotel we went on an exploratory tour. Av. 5 de Mayo, a well developed pedestrian zone near our hotel connects the Alameda Central Park with the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Zócalo (Plaza de la Constitucion). The Zócalo is surrounded by countless historical buildings such as the cathedral, the city hall and the Palacio Nacional with the seat of the prime minister of Mexico.
We were simply impressed by the beauty of the squares and the historical buildings.

Arrival in Germany

Return flight from Cancun to Zurich/Stuttgart – Back home

With a Boeing 777 from Edelweis (Swiss airline) we took off punctually at 11:00 pm in Cancun and 12 hours later we landed in Zurich. Two hours later we continued with a Boeing 737 from Swiss to Stuttgart.
We pick up your suitcase and then we rided home with the S-Bahn.


After 22 days, more than 16000 kilometres by plane and 3200 kilometres by bus and taxi, we arrived back home!

All in all it was a nice and eventful holiday.
We could enjoy the hospitality of the Mexicans.

The travel group with seventeen participants was pleasant. Many interesting biographies and a great togetherness made the trip a great experience.
Our tour guide had extensive knowledge and was able to convey this well.
The travel arrangements by Miller were well solved. The most important places and tours were chosen. Sometimes the tours were too tightly scheduled.
Lufthansa, Edelweis and Swiss – these airlines can be recommended without hesitation.
