How to get train to Bonn from Frankfurt Airport

We are planning to fly overnight to Frankfurt's main airport, then take the train in the morning to Bonn (arriving as close to the Beethoven Haus on Bonngasse as possible). Any suggestions or advice on how to get to the train to Bonn from the United Airlines gate? We can read a little German. Thank you!

There is an ICE between Frankfurt and Bonn. It stops at the airport so you can go to Bonn withouth changing trains.

You might check out www.bahn.de

You need to enter Frankfurt Flughafen Fernbahnhof as start of your trip

When I visited Bonn last spring, I took the ICE train from Frankfurt to Siegburg, then a small trolley-type train to Bonn. The small train stopped right next to Bonngasse where the Beethoven Haus is located. The entire journey took less than an hour. Getting the tickets from the kiosks was a little complicated for a person not fluent in German, but I managed. Bonn is a lovely city, and I hope to return soon!
