Public transport in Frankfurt is uncomplicated, safe and runs until late in the evening. For tickets, prices, group- and special- offers we recommend the following link


From Main Train Station (Hauptbahnhof)


By tram:Leave the main station through the main exit. Directly in front of the main station, take tram line 16 in the direction of "Offenbach Stadtgrenze" to the "Lokalbahnhof" stop. Travel time approx. 20 minutes.

Walk north along Dreieichstraße until you reach the Main. Turn left into the street "Deutschherrnufer". After approx. 100 m you will reach the youth hostel on the left-hand side.


By subway: Take the S3-S6 to the station "Lokalbahnhof". Take the Darmstädter Landstr. exit. Walk straight ahead in the direction of Paradiesgasse (approx. 800 metres). Stay on Paradiesgasse until you reach a medieval tower at the back of the hostel. Our entrance is on the front. (If the train ticket was booked with Frankfurt-City (City-Option of the Deutsche Bahn AG), the S-Bahn can be used to get there with this ticket.).
