Frankfurt am Main Airport is a busy yet highly efficient facility that maintains connections with a large number of international destinations and all major domestic cities. The airport operates two terminals, both of which are equipped with all modern passenger services and amenities, including banks and bureau de change, shops and restaurants.

Transport between the airport and the city of Frankfurt itself is facilitated by the S-Bahn rail system, which provides speedy and frequent connections. Bus transport is also available from a bus station at Terminal 1, while taxis can be found outside the arrivals areas of both terminals and offer perhaps the most convenient way to travel to your destination.

Frankfurt Hahn Airport (HHN) / Arriving by Air

Address: Flugplatzstrasse, Gebaude 667, Lautzenhausen, D-55483, Frankfurt, Germany
Tel: +49 65 4350 9200
Frankfurt Hahn Airport resides close to the border with Luxembourg, being roughly one hour and 30 minutes to two hours west of Frankfurt itself. The facility is located part-way between Kirchberg and Morbach, where it is well connected by road. Those flying here will be able to catch frequent buses into the city, which operate on an hourly basis, while taxis are also to hand. However, although taxis may well be convenient, the lengthy journey is certainly not what you could call cheap, that is unless you are able to share the cost with other travellers.
