Frankfurt am Main Flughafen Fernbahnhof - 128 Photos & 66 Reviews - Train Stations - Hugo-Eckener-Ring 1, Flughafen, Frankfurt am Main, Hessen, Germany - Phone Number - Yelp
I love this airport, and hate it at the same time. It's HUGE, so if you're connecting through here (which I always am since it's a hub for US or SFO based flights to Europe, allow at least 90 min to connect. Even then, you'll be hard pressed for time.
Why I love it though: - Lufthansa lounges are awesome and all over the place - German efficiency - clear signage - last time I was there, I had a walking cast. The lounge and airport worked together to ensure I had free private transport from lounge to airplane, bypassing a long walk across the terminal, a stairway down to a bus and transit across the tarmac. They made sure I was comfortable, safe, boarded easily, and really made the whole experience of traveling with a walking cast much more bearable. Thank you!
Good airport and most people are helpful and speak English. Frankfurt is quite a large airport so it can get confusing but the signs are pretty clear. Clean and organized and nice interior. Quite a lot of people so usually always busy and quite crowded. Few different cafes and restaurants, also other shops. Reasonable prices but each varies. Different terminal have different speed for serving your food depending on how many customers there are and how many waiters/waitresses there are so just watch out before you sit down if you may be in a hurry soon. Pretty convenient with the ICE going to the airport and pretty on time. Lots of parking spaces too.
This trainstation is very well done and serves its purpose nicely. Accessible from Terminal 1 at FRA via a sky bridge and a few minute walk down a pedestrian access, the spaciousness of the architectural concept used in the design is striking a first glance. It is located near the airport hotels which enhances its convenience factor. The ticket office is well placed and efficiently run. There are also several amenities available in the station including a Starbucks and a couple of good eateries. The waiting area on the main level could use a few more seats but it is otherwise well laid out.
The station is not at all overwhelming as the platforms are easily accessible via escalator. Finding the proper track is pretty straightforward. The best aspect of the station, however, is the function is serves. It allows facile entree to points beyond FRA. It greatly reduces the hassle of using Frankfurt as a gateway to Germany and the region in general. Because of the useful purpose it serves in the scheme of the logistics of using FRA, I am a big fan of this station.
This airport is a bit mixed with its layout. It has checkpoints in odd areas so you at times need to go through immigration at multiple intervals. There was one time where I got my passport stamped 4 times in one day because of airline counter visits, eating, etc.
Eating options are OK. Some of the bathroom areas are too small and are oddly placed, and poorly marked. Food options are OK but not as nicely varied as Munich. Shopping is really good, if you are into that sort of thing.
A means to an end. A direct subway train ride to the airport subway station from our downtown Frankfurt hotel. The station is located directly below terminal 1 and you come up in the food court mall, still a level below the terminal. There are some homeless people meandering around but they did not bother us or anyone else... Buy a subway ticket prior to boarding or face a stiff fine. Lufthansa is located in Terminal 1.
The Airport is nice and big and has lots of stores and eateries. Yes it gets busy but so does every larger Airport .What I like most is that they have tight security so arrive early. It is for your safety. Staff is very friendly and speak many languages.
Definitely an odd airport. I've been here for layovers and when starting/ending a trip in Frankfurt. Getting through Customs wasn't bad. Plenty of stores for shopping. Direct link to the subway station below terminal 1. OK eating options, but not awesome. Perk is that they do have parts of the airport that have showers for you to freshen up with, definitely worth the 6 euro after a long day of traveling.
Cons If you have tight connections and have to go between terminals and airlines, good luck. Sometimes trying to check bags can be interesting as you have to find your airline and what check in gates to go to. Not much to do once you get through security.
I loved the FrankfurtAirporttrainstation...i.e. the Fernbahnhof am Flughafen! If you're a tourist or a traveler and you flight into FrankfurtAirport, the Fernbahnhof am Flughafen is your best bet to transfer pretty much anywhere in Germany or the EU. My German trip consisted of 90% train transportation (and some bus) and no automobile. It was that easy. We also stayed at the Sheraton Frankfurt Hotel which was above and neighbored the Fernbahnhof am Flughafen. As a tourist, I didn't need to start my travels from the main Frankfurttrainstation either. You could access any city in Germany from the Fernbahnhof am Flughafen.
The Fernbahnhof am Flughafen has a lot of trains, it has a lot of eateries (not restaurants, just places to grab food on the go), the DB train information desk are happy to help and it's clean. Signs are clearly marked and everything's new.
Connect to the high speed country trains (ICE), the regional DB trains or the subways and trains into Frankfurt. Everything you need in good trainstation.
Well, Germany has two airports. I prefer Munich more than this one.
This airport is just mega-huge with little to no help about direction. Last time I was here, I had about 40 minutes to get to my connecting flight, and I still had to clear security before even getting there.
Yesterday was my second time at this airport, and it was okay. Not great, but just okay. My gate happened to be the very last gate and getting there on foot was horrible. Not sure why one can't take a shuttle from gate to gate. It's not like the gates are uber close. I had a few bags which were heavy, and it was just uncomfortable. I was grateful to get a cup of tea and breakfast sandwich before boarding my connecting flight home.
Well no one really "loves" airports do they? Frankfurt is efficient and seems safe and well organized with good signage, and that's what matters for traveling. I have made tight international connections here lots of times with very few problems. Much easier to get around than Heathrow and better served by Star Alliance partners than Schiphol. There seem to be lots of lounges so there's a good chance one is near your gate. I do use this airport often as transit to go to other places in Europe and this time I noticed even more that needs to be updated.
This is a short walk from the airport, and from here you can catch a train to nearly anywhere you want to go. It is super convenient. I usually like to get a train to a short destination away and spend the night there to break up the travel a bit. The trains are nearly always on time, and are comfortable, and a very nice way to travel. There are also some good places to eat here, as well as some great places to get coffee, pastries, and those great big German Pretzels. There is a bus that will go from the airport luggage claims, but it is really not necessary as you can walk it faster than that bus goes. In fact, between loading luggage into the bus, waiting around for a long time to fill the bus, and then being jerked around as the bus jumps here and there, it is more pleasant to simply walk ... from either terminal 1 or terminal 2 (you can take an airport tram between the two terminals if you wish).
For those who come to Frankfurt, the easiest way to get to the airport is to take a long distance train (ICE - intercity express) to the Fernbahnhof. The Fernbahnhof should not be confused with the Regionalbahnhof, which S-bahn travelers can take to get to the airport. The Fernbahnhof is a lot closer to the airport terminals than is the Regionalbahnhof, but both are equally good ways to connect from air/train.
The Fernbahnhof station is fairly new and, like most of Germany (and German train stations), clean! This Fernbahnhof station contains train lines that connect Frankfurt with most of Germany (Mainz/Wiesbaden, Hamburg, Dortmund, Cologne, etc) and other European countries (Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium). So for those who have flown into Frankfurt, you can easily access other countries or German cities by taking an ICE train here. Trains tend to be more expensive since only ICE trains stop here.
I had to drop my friend off at the airport, so we took an ICE train as it would only take 10 minutes from Mainz, versus more than 30 minutes via S-Bahn #8. The cost, of course, was a little more than double (~12 euros versus ~5 euros), but we got to the airport really fast. Once we got out of the Fernbahnhof station, we walked for a few minutes and we were right at the terminals.
As there are multiple train stations in Frankfurt, trains do come here less frequently than the Frankfurt am Main Hauptbahnhof. So, if you have a Eurail pass, you may need to wait quite some time to get onto a train *out* of the Fernbahnhof station to your destination.
But all in all, this trainstation is small, compact, clean, convenient, and well-connected!
Fancy looking trainstation which would be convenient if the trains run on schedule in general and not as an exception. It takes forever to reach the actual airport once the train arrive so if you're late good luck catching the plane. Hopefully you're not in a hurry but be prepared for incredibly poor signage and a looong way to walk/run from trainstation to/from airport. And poor signage plus rude staff when/if you get a bit lost.
