Frankfurt Airport is Europe's third-biggest airport, flying 56 million passengers a year from its two terminals. Central Frankfurt is 13 km (8 miles) away, an 11-minute trip on a suburban train from Terminal 1.
Shops and services in Terminals 1 and 2 include a 24-hour newsagent. Both terminals have photo and electronic specialists, pharmacies, ATMs, bookshops, duty-free outlets and souvenir shops. Terminal 1's swanky Shopping Avenue and Terminal 2's Shopping Plaza are more of an upmarket mall than an airport shopping centre, where shoppers with cash and time to spare can splash out on luxury goods from Hermès, luggage at TUMI, fashion from Hugo Boss, and leather accessories made in Germany at Bree. Pick up duty-free bargains and special offers on perfumes and cosmetics, spirits and wines, tobacco and accessories.
Wireless internet access is installed throughout the airport; the first 30 minutes are free. One-, three- or 24-hour hotspot passes can be purchased. Some gates have internet ports.
East & Drink
Most dining options are before security in Terminal 1, with just a few fast-food outlets and cafés in Terminal 2. Terminal 1's many choices include Kuffler & Bucher for gourmet or business dining from breakfast through to dinner and laid-back snacks at Connection bistro (open 24 hours). Kids will enjoy ice cream from Häagen-Dazs. Several bars serve beer, wine, coffee and snacks.
