The closest airport is Frankfurt Rhein-Main international airport, located 25 km (15.5 miles) north of Darmstadt. At the airport, regional bus lines depart from arrival area B at Terminal 1 and arrival areas D+E at Terminal 2. We recommend the express bus AirLiner (Terminals 1 and 2), which offers a convenient and fast 30-minute connection from the airport to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main railway station), Luisenplatz, and the Darmstadtium Congress Centre. Note that you need cash to buy a ticket for the AirLiner!
