Trip to Heidelberg

When taking the plane to Germany, we would recommend you to choose Frankfurt International as your destination. This is the largest German commercial airport, so there are plenty of possibilities! Once you have reached the airport, you can either take the train or the bus to Heidelberg. With the train, you will need around 50 minutes, and with the bus between 1 hour and 1 hour 45 minutes.
