From Berlin to Frankfurt am Main
Posted September 23rd, 2009 - 1:48 pm by from Saint Petersburg, Russia (Permalink)
Hello everybody!
I'll be in Berlin this autumn and after that I'll need to travel to Frankfurt am Main. So, I wanted to ask how to do it better and cheaper. I was told that a train is very expensive...maybe you could give me some recommendations?

Hello Paulina,

i think that the cheapest way is flight with ryanair.
just for today there are some offer for this route.
flight is not the cheapest way for the environment but you could plant some plants in the future ;)

have nice days

Yes, Paulina, that's the problem, Ryanair flies to Hahn, not to Frankfurt airport. But certainly they have there, a shuttle bus. No idea what it costs. Sure not for free.

Hello Paulina,

I would recommend you to look for a "Mitfahrgelegenheit" (to go with people in their car). You can find these in www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de. From Frankfurt to Berlin, it costs about 30, - €. I have also taken many times passengers in my car. They were always nice people and I had never problems. You are then directly in the city of Frankfurt and not at the airport. It can be found for different times at the day in this website. When flying you are very fixed on a time. If you need help, write me. I'll help you of course.
Many greetings Christian
