Silly question but important to me regarding Frankfurt airport

I feel very silly asking this question. Will I be able to buy a yogurt at the airport whether at a newsstand with the refrigerated case or a place that sells coffee and other breakfast items? Or maybe even a small market? Or on the ICE train to Berlin? I ask because I’m taking an antibiotic that requires me to have yogurt daily and I won’t get to my hotel until that night. If I miss it, I miss it. I’m just hoping that I don’t.

Thank you.

I feel confident that you will be able to buy yogurt. There are groceries at the airport. Look for Tegut or Rewe.

Check out Natoo - they have a lot of natural foods, including yogurt, and they have a shop at the Frankfurt airport.

Continental, there's a well-stocked Rewe in the train station. You'll find a good selection of yogurt there, as well as other goodies to take along for your train journey to Berlin. Once you get to the Fernbahnhof, information will be ahead and the Rewe all the way to your left. And you'll be within a couple minutes walking to get to your train. Couldn't be easier...

Get some Culturelle probiotics to take with you. There is an “extra strength” available on Amazon.

Yes on the Rewe. Also, they have spoons and forks, but you have to ask at the cashiers desk for them.

You should have no problem finding yogurt. Just remember that grocery stores will be closed on Sundays, except those in the airport or train station. So make sure you check in the airport, or train station.

Continental,

If you're scheduled for an ICE train from Frankfurt Airport to Berlin, and to echo some of what others have stated:

You'll make your way on foot to the long-distance train station Fernbahnhof Flughafen Frankfurt am Main. This website contains a downloadable PDF map (Lageplan) of the train station.

When you arrive at the Fernbahnhof, you'll be on Level 3 (Ebene 3), and at one end, you'll see the bright red sign for REWE, a very well-stocked German-chain grocery store (Lebensmittelgeschäft) with many takeaway/to-go items, both hot and cold. That location is open daily from 7am to 11pm, and has saved my bacon countless times after arriving on the overnight flight from Vancouver. The REWE there should have all that you need.

Track level (Bahnsteigebene) for trains is 2 floors down.

Joghurt is widely available at the airport, not only at Rewe or Tegut, but at the small bakery type stores offering salads, sandwiches, and drinks.

Wow! I cannot thank you all enough for reassuring me how easy it will be to get yoghurt (Joghurt) and also where to ask for a spoon! I’ll be arriving this Tuesday morning. That I will need to have yogurt daily in Germany is a treat I am looking forward to.

My memory might not be serving me correctly, but I don’t recall any place selling yogurt at the Z gates. There was a bakery, hot dog stand, and a store that sold candy and sodas. If you get to those gates too early or late, everything except the bakery is closed. That happened to me the last two times I transited through there. So, if you see a place to buy it, get it when you see it and don’t wait until the next shop.

Quark is very good and healthy, and I had never heard of it before Germany. I would describe the taste as a combination of plan yogurt and sour cream, maybe?? You just reminded me to try to find some in the US- maybe Trader Joe's, Sprouts, or Whole Foods.
Safe travels !

Quark is one of the food items I miss in the US! Try it in Käsekuchen, that's the German version of cheesecake. Very tasty!

I found Rewe has it was exactly where I was directed to go. Thank you! The yogurt was just delicious. I will try quark sometime. I also picked up freshly cut fruit for the train ride. I am actually not hungry enough to eat the major meal I wanted to eat while waiting for my train. I’m so tired that I really am not hungry. So I will save my fruit for later. I left my Anker charging block somewhere at the gate at JFK and realized that on my flight as my in-seat power outlet was dead. I bought a Belkin at Frankfurt airport which I am now using to charge my phone. 🙂

Quark is similar but different - excellent for cooking and not bad at breakfast.

Periscope - Fresh milk is in the cooler section in every grocery store. It is not difficult to find. You can even find fresh goat milk in many grocery stores.
Quark is interesting, because they use it for both sweet and savory dishes. You find it with fresh fruit like mangos or strawberries or used to make cheesecake, or they often use it instead of sour cream with baked potatoes.

Continental,

I'm glad REWE at Fernbahnhof FRA worked out well for you.

Sidenote with Quark:

Soon after the overnight flight's arrival in Germany are these two things I'll get from a bakery at the airport or at a train station:
