I hope someone can help - I am travelling next weekend to Frankfurt to visit the Christmas market for the weekend and am staying at a hotel near the tram stop Frankensteiner Platz. The hotel recommends arriving at subway stations Mühlberg or Lokalbahnhof but I prefer the tram stop Frankensteiner Platz as we will be arriving at night and there is a shorter walk.
I put in the following route into the RMV website yesterday and got a journey time of around 30 minutes with a subway ride to Ostendstraße then a change to the tram. However now I cant seem to get the website to recognize this route - I put in the following in the route inquiry:
From - Frankfurt (Main) Flughafen Regionalbahnhof
To - Frankfurt (Main) Frankensteiner Platz
I now seem to get routes over an hour long with no tram!
Am I doing something wrong?
Two other quick questions:
1) Is it easy to travel with a small suitcase on the subway / tram? Or should I just get a taxi?
2) Is it easy to work out the ticket machine? I gather it is based on Zones and it covers all modes of transport, i.e. subway and tram. Do I just find Frankensteiner Platz and buy a ticket for that zone?
PS I have never been to Germany before and do not speak German.
