Train from Frankfurt airport to Mannheim


My husband & I are flying into Frankfurt airport in early May & will be picking up a motorhome at Mannheim. We were hoping someone would be able to tell us what is the nearest station to the McRent depot in Mannheim & if there are likely to be taxis there. Also will we have to change trains at Mannheim itself & where do we catch the train at Franfurt airport? Many thanks

DB timetable


From: Frankfurt(M)Flughafen

To: Mannheim - Friedrichsfeld, Steinzeugstraße 21

You'll have to change at Mannheim Hbf (main train station). Either to a S-Bahn train, or to a tram or to a taxi.

Closest train station is Mannheim-Friedrichsfeld Süd. No taxi booth there however (price would be approx. EUR 7).

Closest bus stop is Friedrichsfeld Lilli-Gräber-Halle. You need a combination of tram and bus to get there. If you opt for this option buy a train ticket to Mannheim Hbf and there a local public transport ticket (EUR 2,50 pp). For historical reasons the tram RNV 5 from Mannheim Hbf to Seckenheim Rathaus is covered by train tickets - but costs more than a ticket to Mannheim Hbf. Local public transport ticket costs however the same, from Mannheim Hbf or from Seckenheim Rathaus to Friedrichsfeld Lilli-Gräber-Halle costs EUR 2,50.

At Mannheim Hbf you'll find always taxis waiting for customers (~ EUR 25).
