A huge building for sure which is a very busy one with passengers all the time. It's systematic and organized. The place is convenient for anybody though it tend to be a bit crowded when the rush hour sets in.

The mainline station in Frankfurt dates back to 1888 and was later extended so that there are now five parallel halls above ground for international trains and there are regional platforms below ground, which lines S8 and 9 connecting to the airport. It is frustrating...More

Train stations are usually far from clean, but this reminded me on below-average east-european experiences. Overpriced luggage lockers. The food bars are placed very close to the dirty track areas. No seating or proper waiting rooms. Compared to smaller stations in Austria or in Bavaria,...More
