There’s a lot for you to experience and discover here – and Frankfurt’s bus and rail services will get you there. This brochure contains lots of useful information to help you find your way around Frankfurt.


Trams to the stadium

Our guests can reach the stadium on stadium line 20 between the main railway station and the EM Arena and on the regular tram line 21.

Regardless of whether the kick-off is early or late, the stadium service starts around three hours beforehand. The VGF will then deploy ten double traction ‘S’ carriages. All coaches are low-floor (barrier-free). On departure, the trams will run for as long as passengers wish in the direction of the city centre. The control centre at the stadium is manned and the VGF can coordinate operations flexibly from here. Line 21 also runs every ten minutes between the main railway station and the stadium.


The fanzone between Eiserner Steg and Friedensbrücke will open on 12 June. The underground lines U6 and U7 will then offer more space for passengers by running longer trains. Tram line 22 runs together with line 18 between Offenbach Stadtgrenze and Hospital zum Hl. Geist every five minutes until 9 p.m., and every seven and a half minutes until midnight.


Public Viewing at the Main

The underground lines U1, U2, U3, U4, U5, U6 and U7 offer more space by running longer trains to watch the European Championship matches in the fanzone. During the European Championships, the U5 will run to the main station and complement the U4 on the ‘B’ line. Tram lines 11 and 12 will run every 15 minutes until 1 a.m. at night.

Other lines will also be busier during the games: on lines 11, 12 and 14, the frequency will be increased in late-night service in order to offer more capacity, especially in the city centre on the ‘Altstadt’ route.

Multilingual announcements

To ensure that international guests are addressed in a friendly and literally understandable manner on lines 20 and 21: for the matches, the VGF will play welcome announcements between the main railway station and the stadium not only in German and English, but also in the respective languages of the teams playing.

The acoustic passenger information on the operation of the trains between the stadium and the main station as well as to the city centre and the fanzone is also multilingual. At the ‘Hauptbahnhof’ and ‘Stadion Straßenbahn’ stops, they are located behind the information buttons in the waiting halls. Passengers at these stops can request the information manually - in the respective languages, of course.

Passenger information on site

The VGF deploys specially trained staff at selected key stations and stops in the vicinity of the fan zone, who also provide football fans with passenger information around the final stop ‘Stadion Straßenbahn’.
