Well the forum readers probably have never heard this question before-Are there stairs in the Frankfurt (main station) Hbf to go downstairs to get the S bahn, I am having a hard time telling from the DB layout map. My vertigo/phobia thing again. Also would I encounter escalators at various U bahn stops ?I love to travel but get intimidated because of my "issues" . I'm not even crazy about elevators and prefer stairs but CAN take an elevator. I know it's a bad phobia for someone to have who likes to travel but that is my reality! Thanks everyone . Just trying to "scope" things out so I can make alternate arrangements if I have to. Would not want to get on the Sbahn at the airport and then find my only option on arriving at the train station is an escalator.....My palms are sweating as I am thinking about this so you know how serious a problem this is for me, I hope you can allay some of my fears. It does take away a bit from some of my excitement about our trip unfortunately so that is a shame. Anyhow your input is much appreciated!
