Okay guys, hello again.

This is a train station you just need to get off when you get here and this one will take you to the city center or anywhere you want in the nearby towns.

So, one of the advantages of Frankfurt Airport is that it is well-connected to the train station, which can be used to easily travel here in the region or throughout Germany.

In fact, today's video is mostly for people to walk you through the basics.

On arrival and departure from arrivals what to expect.

So this is focus.

I don't know what to expect, although I have a friend who will take me for a walk.

Let's see what to do, yes, I don't know what awaits me.

I don't know, so here it is, and I'm leaving here quickly.

Mostly what happens happens when you get here.

The most convenient way to get anywhere in Germany would be to go to Frankfurt Central Station, which is not far from the airport train station.

So now I'm taking you straight to the helipad and we'll start from there.

We'll also show you where to catch the long-distance train or how to get to Frankfurt Central Station.

We'll show you everything make sure you watch this video till the end the airport is sometimes very big from one terminal to the next because when you fly from the international and arrive at the terminal wherever you get off to enter the european terminal it's on the other side.

If you've already booked your ticket in advance, make sure it's timed well and that you won't miss your train once you leave.

Upon landing here, you will pass through the immigration counter and then be picked up after your return pick-up is complete. Remember to bring some cash with you, for example in coins, one or two euro coins or maybe a 50 cent coin as you will need a coin to unlock the pram clip and then return the pram.

Your money will be returned to you immediately.

I'm sitting in front of one of the arrivals gates, uh, one of, you can take a look at the opponent's gate, let's go! So if you come here on my left you can go straight to the train station if you want to go to Frankfurt Central Station or somewhere else.

I will also show you where you need to take the long distance train, because we will have to leave, yes, then we will have to leave this place.

I'll show you quickly in case you are walking around Frankfurt, somewhere or near where you would need to take a taxi.

There is a taxi stand here.

Let me take you too.

You see there is a taxi rank there and make sure you have enough cash on you so you can pay him cash or some taxi drivers.

They also take cards but make sure you always have plenty of cash with you.

When I say a lot of money, I mean 2,3000 euros, which is perfectly acceptable as cash for long distance travel.

You must leave this arrivals gate.

I mean we were here so we walked in here we got out and then oh so I just walked in again just to show you guys if you're taking a train then how should you go then you're going down the escalator then like this .

There's a train station here, you're going to this place.

There is an ATM at the airport, you'll find several ATMs around the airport and also make sure you have your Wi-Fi connected so you can let your family know you've arrived here.

WiFi is available free of charge.

So as soon as you're leaving here if you're confused there's an information center here and also check out this screen that says long distance train fans are banned.

If you want to go to any other city here, this is basically platform number one.

Two and three are local transport, uh, uh within Frankfurt and nearby cities.

So as Frankfurt City says it means yes for a long distance train or going to another city, you will have to go from platform four to seven on any of those platforms.

One was here, two and three are here.

So after showing you the first, second, and third, we head to the fourth and seventh, fourth to seventh of all platforms, which are long-distance trains that will take you to another city, so to the trained long-distance platform is right next to the airport.

It's only a three minute walk.

If you have a lot of bags it's five minutes but there are a lot of escalators and lifts.

So don't worry about it.

We were basically on the other side of the terminal and now we are also going to this side, one more important thing just in case if you have any problems with the Kovit test here, there is a slug test going on which is like a quick quick test.


So don't worry about that just in case if you're stuck with this whole lust theme, there are hubs here.

They will do it really fast and fast for you.

I'll quickly show you where you can catch a long-distance train, and for that you need to go to platform 4567 on any train other than Frankfurt.

So you have to come to this long distance terminal which is also where you come here.

Right behind me.

What you see is the ticket office.

You can book a ticket so red is from Deutsche Bank.

If you want to book a long-distance train other than Frankfurt or another city, use this facility, or if you want to travel in the Hesse region, rmv is a local company here in the state of Hesse.

In addition, you can also book your ticket online.

You can download db navigator or rmv app from any application.

I can let you book local or intercity tickets in Frankfurt or other cities in Germany. I'll show you quickly.

This is where the four and five are, and to the left is where the six and seven are. I'll get you down quickly and show you what the platform looks like.

So now we're at number four five six seven! These are the platforms.

Long distance trains used to run there a while back, just saw a train leaving for uh karlsruhe.

It's a platform uh, I'm standing at number 6.

Right behind me you can see a train leaving for Cologne and Dortmund and generally to other places outside of Frankfurt.

This is the platform you should come to.

So as I've shown you the long distance train now, I'll show you in case you're going to Frankfurt Central Station, I'm going back to the platform, once two or three, I told you, I'm getting on one of the trains going downtown.

This is a bus.

Stop here.

If we wanted to take the bus, please stop, don't panic, in case you get lost.

There are always people around you to help you, be it a local train ticket, an ATM or going to the toilet, or a SIM card for Wi-Fi.

Don't panic.

I think you should be at Frankfurt Central Station in 20 minutes.

All right, I just got off the regional express train.

This train actually goes from Saarbrücken.

It only took me 10-15 minutes to reach Frankfurt Central Station, otherwise you can also take the S-Bahn to reach Frankfurt Central Station.

It will take about 20 minutes.

It took 15s. Banning will take 20 minutes.

I just left the station, uh.

This is the main entrance and exit.

Of course, the station has a station, there are many exits at the entry point, but this is one of the main ones.

Which I know anyway, so the whole point and lesson of this film was in a lot of areas that I couldn't film for security reasons, yes.

What was important to you was uh.

Where is the train station? How to get a cart? Like I told you, the coin system? There is a taxi rank, along with a train station that is located in the airport, not very often your trains, no matter where you want to go, not necessarily trains go to your destination from that airport.

So you'd better come here to the main station and take the train from there as the frequency is quite high from here.

In all parts of Germany, not just Hessen, yes, make sure you have enough cash.

If you're looking for a SIM card, there are opportunities at the airport itself by showing your passport and visa, whatever copy you have.

Also, there is free Wi-Fi at the airport, so make sure you connect and let your family know that yes, you have landed here safely.

I think in many of my previous videos I also told you that you must have a forex card, bring a forex card with money loaded, so yes.

That's all I got, if you enjoyed the video please click thumbs up and see you next time bye.
