    Hi Jacques,

    A connection from the Frankfurt Airport to Luxembourg takes about 4 to 4.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Koblenz along the way.

    For the segment from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz, I would specifically recommend taking one of the regional trains. The regional trains from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz run along the very scenic 'West Rhine Railway' (aka 'Rhine Valley Line'). After going through Mainz, these trains will also make stops in picturesque villages on the River Rhine, including Ingelheim, Bingen, Bacharach, Oberwesel, and Boppard.

    Currently, the regional trains on this rail line are not able to be viewed or booked on our website. Instead, to purchase tickets for these particular trains, you would have to call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays. When you call, just make sure we issue you an 'open ticket', so that you will be able to use it to get off and on along the way.

    Otherwise, you can purchase tickets on our site for one of the IC (InterCity) trains from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz, as the 'Flexible' versions of these would also be valid for you to use on the regional trains; however, the schedules displayed would just not be accurate to the regional trains. Therefore, you'd still have to call us if you wish to verify the specific schedules for the regional trains. The IC trains do run along the same route as the regional trains, but they will not stop at any of the villages in between Mainz and Koblenz.

    When searching schedules from 'Frankfurt Airport' to 'Koblenz' on our site, the IC trains can be identified by their train numbers. The IC trains from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz have train numbers with 4 digits that will all begin with the number '2'.

    Also, to purchase a Frankfurt Airport-Koblenz ticket that you want to be valid on the regional trains as well, you would just be sure to choose the 'Flexible' option.

    To ensure you're purchasing a 'Flexible' fare, you would click the 'View' button under the cost(s) shown for a particular departure. After you click 'View', a box will expand out underneath where the 'Ticket Flexibility' options will be listed. By clicking the 'Flexible' option under 'Ticket Flexibility', you would be issued a ticket that would also be valid for to use on the regional trains and enable you to jump off and on along the way.

    'Flexible' tickets for an IC train from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz are only valid for other trains operating on the same day, while the 'open tickets' you purchase by calling us would be valid for a time period of 4 days.

    When our site is able to display the regional trains for this route, they also can be distinguished by their train numbers. The regional trains from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz have train numbers with 4 digits, all beginning with the number '4'.

    All direct trains from Koblenz to Luxembourg are regional trains. Once again, if you purchase the 'Flexible' option for these tickets, then you would be able to get off and on along the way, as long as it's all done on the same day.

    You can view schedules for IC trains from Frankfurt Airport to Koblenz and the regional trains from Koblenz to Luxembourg by doing a search under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage, www.raileurope.com. For trains departing out of the station at the airport in Frankfurt, you would just have to be sure to type 'Frankfurt Airport' in the field for the departure city. Additionally, you would have to break up your search once in Koblenz. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from 'Frankfurt Airport' to 'Koblenz' and then another search for connecting trains from 'Koblenz' to 'Luxembourg'.
