Big is beautiful in Germany’s fifth-largest city. The world’s biggest book fair, Germany’s largest financial centre, the country’s busiest railway station, tallest building, highest cost of living… the statistics are staggering. Yet behind Frankfurt’s powerhouse image lies a hospitable community with a rich cultural heritage. Wander through the old town when the Christmas markets lend a special seasonal sparkle, or stroll in the summer sunshine along the leafy banks of the Main, and you’ll soon discover that flights to Frankfurt Airport aren’t just for high-flyers.
It won’t surprise you to learn that Frankfurt’s airport is one of the busiest in the world. This can only be good for consumers, since competition from the major global players keeps prices keen. If you’re looking for a bargain, try not to coincide with the Frankfurt Book Fair (October) or International Motor Show (September). Flights through December and into the New Year also fill up quickly with festive fun-seekers. Outside of the main pressure points, however, it’s fairly easy to shop around for cheap tickets to Frankfurt so you can spend big once you arrive!
Frankfurt Airport is the arrival point for British Airways flights from London Heathrow and London City Airport – the latter operated by BA CityFlyer and catering mainly for the business market. German national carrier Lufthansa, based in Frankfurt, also runs a scheduled service from Heathrow and Edinburgh, as well as from London City under its CityLine badge. For those who live in South West England, BMI Regional operates handy return flights to Frankfurt from Bristol. Budget supremo Ryanair flies into Frankfurt-Hahn, around 75 miles west of the city, from Edinburgh, London Stansted and Newquay.
The strategic position of Frankfurt Airport within the city’s well-coordinated public transport network means that reaching your destination in the city centre couldn’t be easier. The S-Bahn metro lines S8 and S9 depart frequently, calling at all the main transport intersections and reaching Frankfurt Central Station in around 12 minutes. Regional-Express trains also provide services between the airport and the Central Station as well as further afield. Alternatively, hail a cab from the rank outside the terminal building and speed along the Autobahn like Kraftwerk. Hahn Airport lies at the end of a bus journey of around two hours from Central Station.

Get an alternative taste of the high life by climbing 324 steps to the top of the cathedral tower, reconstructed in its original Gothic splendour. Then head for picture-postcard Römerberg square to see another side of Frankfurt – the half-timbered heart of its medieval past.
