  • from Frankfurt-Hahn Airport (HHN)

    by shuttle bus:

    If you arrive at Frankfurt Hahn Airport (HHN), then your best option for travelling to Mannheim is taking a bus to Mainz and then change to a train to Mannheim.

    For booking the bus we recommend these two platforms.

    Prices range from €15 to €20 and the bus takes around 75 minutes.

    Upon arrival in Mainz you need to get the train at the Main station, which is a few minutes walk from the bus stop. There are different options for trains that take different amounts of time (between 45 and 90 minutes) and vary in costs (between €18 and €22), so be sure to book the right one to avoid being fined.
