best way to get from Frankfurt to Luxembourg City

We're flying in to Frankfurt from Qatar and wonder what is the best/most efficient/cheapest way to get to Luxembourg? What is the train routing? Are there any discounts for children under 12? This is in late June. Thanks for any help

We just did this last week. Take the train from the airport. You can get a ticket to Luxembourg Ville (main train station). It's a nice route - goes along the Rhine and you can see a bunch of castles. You change trains in Koblenz. If you have time & the weather is good, plan to stop for a couple of hours in Trier - store your luggage in the train station lockers. There are some neat Roman ruins there. I think the train to Trier took about 2.5 or 3 hours and then another hour or so to Lux Ville.

Alternatively you could rent a car. The drive is almost as scenic as the train ride and takes 2 hours from FRA airport to downtown Luxembourg. It's a very easy almost all freeway ride plus you have the option to visit Trier and Cochem, which is even more spectacular.

On www.budget.de you can get a VW Touran (perfect family sized car) for €59 a day incl. insurances.

I strongly recommend you take a car!

What is the approximate cost by train from Frankfurt (Main) Airport to LUX? Is the train frequency decent?

Any budget hotel suggestions?

RAChicago,

It all depends on what train you take and what day you are planning to travel.

There is the ICE, IC and also the RE. I recommend taking the ICE train and stay away from the RE train. The RE train is the slowest and stops at every city/village.

Taking the train from FRA airport is a breeze..since departure is right in the airport.

You may want to check out this site. You will find all the prices there depending on what train you take and what day you planning on traveling.
