How do I get from Frankfurt Oder to Frankfurt (Hahn) airport? Is there a shuttle bus or easy to walk?
First, do you really mean Frankfurt (Oder) in former East Germany or Frankfurt (Main) the large financial center of former West Germany with its large airport? From the latter is a shuttle bus to Hahn, hardly an "easy walk" at over 100km. The Hahn Airport website will have details, just google for it.
My daughter is on a train heading to Frankfurt Oder and has to get to Frankfurt Hahn - is there a shuttle bus from Frankfurt Oder do you know? Thank you.
Frankfurt (Oder) is on the Polish border east of Berlin, across the whole of Germany from Hahn. (Would you use an airport in Scotland for London?) There certainly are no shuttle buses. Airports in Berlin would have been convenient. www.bahn.com will have information about traveling by public transportation, but it will be a very long expensive trip, the last of which will be done by bus as Hahn is not on a railway line but in a remote area west of Frankfurt (Main).Edited: 3:54 am, July 16, 2011
On that website, use From: Frankfurt (Oder) Bahnhof which is the train station, To: HHN Flughafen Hahn which is the airport you want to use. This is an 8-10 hour trip and costs ovet 100€.
It appears this is where she is heading Frankfrut Oder and will then pick up a train in Berlin to Frankfurt Hahn. This is what the station sold her as the best route?! Can you tell me how long it will take from Frankfurt Oder - Berlin to Frankfurt Hahn by train please?
You have already been given the link to the website of Deutsche Bahn, where you can look up connections.
Frankfut(Oder and Hahn airport are at opposite ends of the country. This is like booking a flight to Edinburgh when your destination is Dover. Does not make any sense. Seems somebody confused the two Frankfurts.
There are no trains to Hahn airport, she first has to cross the country by train (yes, via Berlin) and then change to the shuttle bus from either Frankfurt/Main, Frankfurt/Main Airport, Mainz or Koblenz, and depending on where she changes, travel on the bus for 1-2 hours. 10 hours total travel time is a realistic estimate.
See above, but you can use the actual date and time of travel and see what you come up with.
Thank you. She sure made a mess of this journey! Ended up in Frankfurt Oder and not Frankfurt Hahn! Oh well now booking a flight from Berlin!!!!
