Stresemannallee Building Project

[Translate to english:] Bauvorhaben Stresemannallee Teaser


Since December 2014, line 17 has run from Rebstockbad in Bockenheim via the trade fair grounds, the central station, Friedensbrücke and the Stadtwald forest to Stadtgrenze Neu-Isenburg. The direct connection between Neu-Isenburg and the central station is part of the planned Frankfurter Ring tram line. The former tram line 14 has been retained and runs from Ernst-May-Platz reaching Louisa-Schleife, where a changeover to the “new” line 17 is possible.

With a total of 18 stops, the new tram line provides new connections and faster journeys: The Opera and the Schauspielhaus are now only 16 minutes from Neu-Isenburg with a changeover at Baseler Platz, while the Senckenberg Museum can be reached from Ludwig-Ehrhard-Anlage in 18 minutes. Frankfurt central station can be reached from the southern city limit on a direct, barrier-free journey in 13 minutes. At Südbahnhof, with the lines U1, U2, U3 and U8, there’s a connection to tram line 14 to Louisa.
