Does the Frankfurt rail station have luggage storage?

I am planning to travel from Frankfurt airport to Heidelberg, put my luggage in a luggage storage and go for my exploration and return to Frankfurt am Main in the evening... can it be done? What time does the last train leave for Frankfurt am Main? And what is the cheapest way to travel for this route?

  • The Frankfurt Airport allows 24 hours luggage storage in Terminal 1. You may view all of Rail Europe information on this station at http://www.raileurope.com/europe-trav... . For further details and fees of the Frankfurt Airport luggage storage you can inqure at the station. The most economical option for train travel from Frankfurt Airport to Heidelberg and then Heidelberg to Frankfurt Main would be individual tickets. A pass would only be more economical if you were traveling mulitple train routes. You can enter each direction on the Rail Europe website to view fares and schedules at http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket... .

  • Thanks Benjamin :)

    Does Heidelberg train station has luggage storage? If I put my luggage with the airport storage, that would mean that I have to travel back to airport before going to Frankfurt Main again, right?

    I am arriving in the morning 6 am. Is it easy to purchase tickets over machine or are there already customer services staff at the railway station?

      Hi Yuki,

      For reservable trains in Germany, an 'open ticket' is issued along with the reservation as a separate document.

      In this case, if you miss the train you book initially on our website, you would only lose the reservation portion, but the ticket portion would still be valid for you to take a later train (any single train operating between the cities listed on the ticket for a 1 month time period beginning on the date you performed your search for when you place your order).

      If it lists the ticket and the reservation separately under 'Ticket Flexibility' (with the ticket having a 15% cancellation penalty and the reservation being non-refundable and non-exchangeable), then you would know an open ticket (valid for use on a later train) and a reservation (not valid for a later train) would be issued as separate documents. Rest assured, you would still be able to board a later train using only the open ticket and without the reservation, or else you can just purchase a reservation locally.

      You would purchase tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Trains in Germany can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure.
