Frankfurt and the region are well-connected at night. The night busses in Frankfurt operate every night from Friday to Saturday, Saturday to Sunday or even U-Bahn (metros), S-Bahn (city trains) and local trains run before public holidays.

Thus, there are offers not only for night owls, but also for persons who come to or go from work at night.

Local trains

Additional connections to the following routes are available from the Frankfurt Central Station at night from Friday to Saturday and Saturday to Sunday:

  • RB21/22 via Niedernhausen to Limburg

U-Bahn in night service

  • Line U4: every half an hour between Bockenheimer Warte and Seckbacher Landstraße. It establishes the connection between Konstablerwache and the Central Station.
  • Line U8: every half an hour between South Station, Hauptwache and Heddernheim.

Both the lines intersect at Willy-Brandt-Platz so that all the three important night service stations are interconnected (Central Station, South Station and Konstablerwache).
