The Frankfurt Fernbahnhof is at the airport and not in Frankfurt itself. This is the long distance train station. You would need to take an S-bahn from the airport Regional train station, to go into the city, which takes 11-17 minutes depending on which stop you go to.

There are a lot of things you could visit and see n Frankfurt in 3 hours, but it depends on what time your flight leaves, when you have to be at the airport, etc.

On Google, type: Frankfurt.de

Go to Frankfurt am Main: Tourism

Go to Tourism

Below Virtual city tour, click "more"

Below DOWNLOADS, click "City tour"

You should find a map of suggested sights

At #18 you have the Hauptwache S-bahn

At #4 you find the Iron Bridge(pedestrian), and at #11 Romer

You could go from #18 to #4 part way along a pedestrian street, and back.

This should be an interesting walk and you have enough time, if you have a total of 3 hours, EXCLUDING the time your flight lands and to get to the city, and back from the city in time to be at your departure gate prior for your flight. If it's 3 hours between flights, then I would think it over.
