Frankfurt is surprisingly compact for a major business capital, and if you’re restricting your sightseeing to the city centre, Old Town and Sachsenhausen, you’ll be able – weather permitting – to cover much of it on foot. Even so, you’re likely at some stage to want to make use of the efficient public transport system, which forms part of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV) network that covers both Frankfurt and the surrounding communities of the Rhein-Main region.
Within the city itself, the U-Bahn (underground) network is supplemented by trams, buses and S-Bahn (suburban railway). The system runs from 4am until 2am, and there are several night bus lines at weekends. Frankfurt’s cream-coloured taxis are plentiful, with taxi ranks at the main station and at various locations in the inner city. If you’re travelling within the city centre, you can also hire a Velotaxi (cycle taxi).
