Travel and Visa


All roads lead to Frankfurt! That may sound a bit pretentious, but it's really not far from the truth. Frankfurt is home to continental Europe's largest airport, Germany's busiest train station and its most travelled motorway intersection. In short: Frankfurt has become one of Europe's premier traffic hubs. Frankfurt's superb traffic and transport networks guarantee that the city and the region can be reached quickly and easily from the four corners of the world.
