There are 4 Frankfurts in Germany, it makes a difference!
There is an excellent book with information on all the sport climbing in Germany called Deutsch Rock from tmms verlag which will tell you all the possibilities near wherever you are. Not a lot of trad outside the Alps.

Franktfurt? Never heard of that.
Would indeed be helpful if you can clarify which Frankfurt you mean. I'd assume Frankfurt/Main?
To get yourself an overview, i would recommend http://felsinfo.alpenverein.de/. If it is indeed Frankfurt/Main, the standard rocks are Lorsbacher Wand, Eschbacher Klippen, Morgenbachtal and Schriesheim. They all require some driving and are quite crowded, but given their popularity, they are probably the best rocks around Frankfurt.

The Rhein Main area has a few places that are not bad (as mentioned above).

The Eifel (Mayen/Ettringen/Kottenheim) has some nice climbing. It is a little further, but close enough for a day trip.

Kottenheim has some shorter, easier routes, a small rack is a good idea there. Ettringen is better, but you won't find too much under 5.9 there.

For Trad, check out the Süd Pfalz. For routes under 5.9 you will need a rack for sure.

Schriesheim is less than an hour away, mostly well protected but you will want a a bit of gear for between the bolts on many routes. Small but kinda fun top roping in Reichenbach near Bensheim. Well protected (if a bit blocky) 60m wall by Bensheim but you have to join the DAV. A few other places in the Odenwald. Süd Pfalz is about 2.5 houers away with lots of trad or rather sparsly bolted options. Dahn is sort of the climbing center of the Süd Pfalz.
Send me a PM if you want any info or a partner for Schriesheim, Odenwald or the Pfalz.
