Hahn Airport Mini Guide
Tell me why I Should Visit Frankfurt?
The city combines the medieval with the ultra-modern. A skyline that could rival New York or Chicago melds perfectly with the 15th and 16th century heart of the city. Places you should visit include Romerberg, the old town. There’s a wealth of important archaeological treasures and even remnants of the Roman city that gave its name to this part of modern Frankfurt. A number of museums worth visiting exist which tell the story of the city in great detail. For an outdoor treat, walk along the banks of the Main River and look back at the city. There, especially at night, you’ll get a great view of some of Europe’s tallest skyscrapers.
How do I get into Frankfurt?
Frankfurt has two airports, Frankfurt Main and Frankfurt Hahn. Main is closer to the city but flights are more expensive there whilst Hahn is the haunt of the budget airlines but will take you nearly two hours into the city.
What’s Frankfurt Hahn Like?
Almost all the flights there are Ryanair operated from a huge range of European destination. The airport has an almost equal size custom for cargo airlines from across Europe. The airport is large and modern despite having originally been built over half a century ago as a military airport. It has a good range of facilities and is used by millions each year who put up with the long journey into the city. Strangely, despite being exclusively an international airport, it doesn't have the word 'International' in its name.
What can I Expect When I Arrive at the Airport?
The airport has been undergoing much renovation and upgrading over the last few years and the result has been a modern, stylish airport. After a little walk from your plane to passport control, you’ll soon have collected your luggage and be in the arrivals hall. All the signage is at a high level and very clear so you’ll have no trouble finding your way around. If you need help, then the information desk is towards the back of the hall and there you’ll be able to find out about airport facilities, onward transport and get assistance for mobility issues. There are no rail connections from the airport but the airport bus can drop you off at the nearest railway stations for a connection through to Frankfurt. If you’ve hired a car, you’ll find the desks situated between Terminals 1 and 2. A bank and a foreign exchange office together with ATMs for withdrawing cash can be found in the arrivals hall.
What About When I Leave?
The airport has plenty to keep you occupied on the day of your departure. There is a mall of shops including fashion and accessories, jewellery, flowers, sunglasses, books and toys before security together with a number of restaurants ranging from fast food to a la carte restaurants serving traditional German fare. After security you’ll find the extensive Heinemann duty free outlet and further cafes, bars and snacks. The airport also offers a Wi-Fi facility which is operated on a pay per use basis.
