Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany (DE)
Getting away from Frankfurt Airport is very straightforward, thanks to two train stations (Regionalbahnhof and Fernbahnhof) with great train services. From Frankfurt Airport, you can also easily reach other German cities such as Main and Wiesbaden.
The S-Bahn (public transport) trains leave from the 'Regionalbahnhof' station. Take the S8 or S9 into Frankfurt Hauptwache station for city centre, or Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof (main station) for other cities in Germany. Trains leave every 10 minutes or so and journey time is only 11 minutes to Hauptbahnhof. These trains also go to Mainz and Wiesbaden.
Location: Regionalbahnhof in Terminal 1, under Concourse B, ground level (take monorail from Terminal 2)
Cost: EUR 4.95 adult, EUR 2.90 child
Buying tickets: Ticket machines on the station platforms
You can also take regional Deutsche Bahn trains from the airport's 'Fernbahnhof' station, including the RE2, RE3 and Germany's super-fast ICE trains. Journey time to Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof is 15 minutes on the RE trains and 11 minutes on the ICE.
Location: Fernbahnhof in Terminal 1, cross a sky bridge to the station (or take monorail from Terminal 2)
Buying tickets: Two 'Reisezentrum's or travel centres: one in the station, and one just above the regional station in the underground shopping area (ground level), near the centre of Concourse B
You can take a taxi from both terminals 24 hours a day. The 12km journey into Frankfurt will take 20-40 minutes, depending on traffic.
Cost: Around EUR 30-40
If your flight leaves in less than 30 minutes, you can use Frankfurt’s fantastic Fast Lane service. The ‘Fast Lanes’ at security checkpoints let you skip the queues and go straight through to your gate.

Power outlets can be found in the relaxation zones of both terminals.
You will also find a large number of free Oracle-sponsored charging stations throughout the airport.

Concourse A serves most domestic Lufthansa flights, while Concourse Z serves most long-distance Lufthansa flights. To transfer to a long-distance flight in Concourse Z from Concourse A, simply go up some stairs, through passport control and you're not far from your gate.
Plan more time when travelling in the other direction though. Connecting to Concourse A from Concourse Z can take a long time as you have to go through passport control, which can be a good distance from where you arrive. For example, from Z78 to passport control near Z1 is a long walk, and then you'll have to go all the way back to your gate at Concourse A.
