Frankfurt-Mainz

Jump to last reply

I have another thread open where I have asked for some help with planning an itinerary for our trip to Germany later this year but I am posting this as a separate thread as I'm hoping to catch the eye of some Frankfurt area "experts".

Our itinerary currently has us flying into Frankfurt airport and spending our first 2 nights in Frankfurt before taking a train to Berlin.

We have some interest in a concert at the Zitadelle Mainz on the second of our nights but we are reluctant to buy tickets with no knowledge of the venue location, transport etc.

If we have a hotel in Frankfurt town centre how practical would it be to take public transport to & from the concert? Concert starts at 7:00pm so I guess would go though to about 11:00pm. Is the Zitadelle well served with transport?

If we spent our two nights in Mainz, going the straight from the airport to a hotel close to the Zitadelle, would it be practical to spend the first day looking around Mainz and then take public transport into Frankfurt the second day for some sightseeing before returning to Mainz for the concert? I guess in that case we'd have to use a public transport link back to Frankfurt the next day to catch our train to Berlin.

Looking forward to some thoughts on how we might tackle this; thanks, Greg
