Car

Thanks to its central location, Frankfurt is an important traffic hub and can be easily reached from all directions. The motorway interchange with the highest volume of traffic, the Frankfurt Interchange, connects the federal motorways A3 and A5 and is used by more than 305,000 cars and lorries every day.


Depending on the direction of travel, you can reach Frankfurt in the following ways:

From the north (e.g. Hamburg, Kassel, Hanover), via the federal motorway A5 to the Frankfurt interchange
From the south (e.g. Basle, Karlsruhe, Darmstadt), via the federal motorway A67, then onto the A5 to the Frankfurt interchange
From the west (e.g. Cologne): via the federal motorway A3 to the Frankfurt interchange
From the south-east (e.g. Munich, Würzburg): via the federal motorway A3 to the Frankfurt interchange
From the south-west (e.g. Saarbrücken) via the federal motorway A6 and then A5 to the Frankfurt interchange.

In the ‘Gelbe Seiten’ (the ‘Yellow Pages’) under the key word ‘Autovemietung’ you can select one of the many Frankfurt car hire companies. Deutsche Bahn offers a special service with DB Carsharing: customers can pick up a hire car directly at the central station or at other locations within Frankfurt. At the travel centre in the central station, interested passengers can obtain information in person and also book their car straight away.
