Transportation in Frankfurt


The bus network is extensive and reliable. As with all public transport in the city, don't forget to validate your ticket when you board. Night buses run from 1am to 5am.


In the city centre, walking is the best way of exploring and uncovering less obvious streets and attractions. From the main railway station, it takes 15 minutes to reach the centre.


Beige Mercedes taxis are instantly recognisable. Hail one on the street, or call the central taxi office on +49 (0) 69 250 001 to arrange one in advance. Taxi drivers expect a tip of 5-10%.


Frankfurt's underground network, or U-Bahn, is a quick and very convenient way to get around the city. There are seven lines and the system runs from 4am to 2am.

Rent your car

Being Germany’s financial capital, Frankfurt has plenty of business visitors coming and going by car. Needless to say, there are motorways leading across, around and out of the city. The centre is restricted to cars displaying a low-emission sticker but there are park-and-ride sites in the outskirts.

Transportation tips

A day ticket is good value if you make extensive use of public transport and is valid for U-Bahn, trams and buses. The 1 or 2-day Frankfurt Card offers unlimited free travel on public transport as well as free or reduced-price entry to various sights around the city.
