The best way to get to the stadium is by train. The Commerzbank Arena is 2 stops away from the main train station (6 minute ride) or, coming from the opposite direction one stop away from Frankfurt airport (4 minute ride). There are trains a least every 15 min. See www.rmv.de The normal ticket price from the main station is 2,20 EUR.

If you come by car from outside Frankfurt follow A3 or A5 to motorway intersection "Frankfurter Kreuz", go east on A3 to exit "Frankfurt Süd", follow signs (with football) to stadium. It has 4 parking lots.

Travel information

Venue maps

Recommended hotels

Frankfurt is a fair city and has many hotels from 0 to 5 stars. The part of town called Niederrad lies between stadium and city centre and offers some reasonably priced hotels. Fastest to reach after concert, one train stop. One stop further is the city centre where you can chose hotel according to the size of your wallet. There is Sheraton in the airport. You can walk right into it from Terminal 1. Not cheap. Find hotels www.hrs.de, www.hotel.de.

There is a new small designer Hotel calles Goldmann 25 Hours with prices about Euro 60,- to 100,- and you can check in 24 hours. The hotel is located in the Hanauer Landstrasse , where the Frankfurter Club and Bar scene has his place.

Recommended bars/restaurants

The tradisionell Restaurants and Bars are in Sachsenhausen the old style distrikt of Frankfurt in the center of the city.

On the Hanauer Landstrasse are the modern scene clubs and designer Bars. Recomended: The Coccon Club - got last year the titel: Best Club in the World 2006. And also the King Kamehameha Club is good for a visit.

Meeting place for fans

Dauth-Schneider
Neuer Wall 5-7 / Klappergasse 39
D-60594 Frankfurt am Main, Germany

This place looks great and traditional and you get to see the local stuff and also the area. Inside and oustide both works fine in case of unstable weather. And they have plenty of food as it seems. Plus access by S-bahn which is the tram, then you see the city as you travel around.

HOW TO FIND US

Walking: Take any Bridge crossing the river, direction "Alt-Sachsenhausen". You´ll find the main entrance next to the northside "Affentor-Haus" ("Affentorplatz").

By Car (Don´t drink and drive!): From Kurt-Schumacher-Straße crossing the river at "Alte Brücke" or from Lange Straße crossing the river at "Ignaz-Bubis-Brücke" choose direction CarPark "Alt-Sachsenhausen" at "Walter-Kolb-Straße". CarPark open 24 hours.

With Public Transportation: With S-tram-Lines S2, S3 or S4 to "Lokalbahnhof" or Tube-Lines U1, U2, U3 to "Südbahnhof". With Bus- Line 46 to "Frankensteiner Platz" or Lines 30 and 36 to "Affentorplatz". Tram-Lines 14 to "Dreieichstraße" or Line 15 or 16 to "Lokalbahnhof".

A nice and original place to sit in & outside in Sachsenhausen is "Dauth-Schneider". it's over 150 years old and is located right next to the genuine tourist traps of Sachenhausen (beware, there are plenty!) The main stuff (Stöffche) is Appelwine, but of course you also get good beer and typical hessian food.
