Train Transfers To and From Frankfurt Airport
Frankfurt International Airport Train Transfers
Frankfurt Airport boasts two train stations, one for regional trains and one for fast rail connections to all parts of Germany and her European neighbours. It's easy to get to the railway stations from the terminals, as they are connected via corridors at Terminal 1, and via Sky Line trains and shuttle buses.
The regional train station, Frankfurt Flughafen Regionalbahnhof, connects passengers with the cities of Frankfurt, Aschaffenburg, Hanau, Mainz and Wiesbaden. Simply follow signage to tracks 1 to 3.
Metro trains (S-Bahn) leave from these platforms, services being provided by lines S8 and S9. They connect to Frankfurt's main train station in the city center. Lines 59 and 75, both regional trains, also connect the airport with the city. A single ticket from/to the airport and Frankfurt's central train station (Hauptbahnhof) costs 4.95 Euros for an adult and 2.90 Euros for a child.
S-Bahn lines S8 and S9 leave every 15 minutes from the regional train station at Frankfurt Airport, arriving usually at platform 102 at the Hauptbahnhof in the city center. For timetable and pricing information, please go to the website of the train company RMV.
You can find the Regionalbahnhof (regional train station) below Terminal 1 on underground Level 0. Use Sections A, B and C at Arrivals and follow the signs to Airport City Mall/Regionalbahnhof.
