7 hour layover in FRA, headed to christmas market

Hi all,

I am planning to head into town on a long layover in FRA, just one question.
I'm traveling dxb fra yyc. So question, I know I'll have to clear customs and re clear security in way back in.

Do I need to get my carry on to clear customs or can it remain checked through? And if I travel carry on only is there any lockers in the airport or any star gold lounges?

Any tips in general? I've read most of the folks doing this sort of thing, seems.pretty straight forward with the train system!

Your carry-on baggage will have to stay with you as it is not checked in. Lufthansa Senator lounges (*G lounges) do have lockers where you might be able to store your carry-on (not sure if you are supposed to do this if leaving the airport but some people are known to do this) but make sure you choose the lounge in the concourse where your flight to YYC departs from. Otherwise you may not be able to retrieve your carry-on on your return to the airport. There is also baggage storage landside in FRA.

Check this thread for info on Frankfurt Christmas market.
Which of the three Frankfurt Christmas markets to choose?

Note that until 14 December S8/S9 trains to the city will depart from the long-distance train station.

Sorry, I miss worded that.

I may check my carryon at origon, if I get to leave it with luftansa for the connection.

Is that possible?

If you check your bag in DXB there’s no need to collect and re-check it in FRA. You will only see it when you arrive in YYC.
