Frankfurt central station is the most important rail transport hub in Germany. Every day, more than 1,100 trains connect the city with many national and international destinations and around 700 suburban railway trains take passengers to stations within Frankfurt and the surrounding area. More than 460,000 passengers and visitors from home and abroad use this station every day. To be able to manage this great volume of traffic, the central station has more than 25 platforms in five departure halls.
Mobility and flexibility even without a car is an important locational advantage of Frankfurt. Although Frankfurt, with about 760,000 inhabitants, is ‘only’ the fifth largest city in Germany, approximately 350,000 commuters travel to work in the Main metropolis every day on work days. This figure is supplemented by countless visitors and tourists, who use the well-developed local transport network. In addition to the bus routes, many underground and suburban railways operate in local transport. In addition to the suburban railways, the regional trains of the Rhine-Main Transport Association (RMV) are also available for trips into the surrounding area of Frankfurt.
