Getting to Marburg by trainMarburg has direct train connections to the two next larger cities, Frankfurt and Kassel. In both cases, the total trip takes one hour, and trains depart every hour (see the train schedule at the Deutsche Bahn website). If you arrive from Frankfurt main station (Hauptbahnhof), depending on your chosen connection, you will take a RE, HLB or an IC train. If you take a HLB, be careful: Some of these trains are being split in “Gießen”. Make sure that you are sitting in the correct half of the train, going to “Treysa”, not “Dillenburg”.
Get off at “Marburg (Lahn)”. Depending on your train and your direction, the station before is either “Giessen” (IC or RE from Frankfurt), “Marburg Süd” (HLB from Frankfurt), “Treysa” (IC from Kassel) or “Kirchhain” (RE or HLB from Kassel). The bus stop at the main train station is located in front of the exit. For travel plans from there, see the RMV website. Taxis are also available from the main train station.
Getting to Marburg by airplane (Frankfurt Airport):Starting from Frankfurt airport (Flughafen), Marburg can be arrived by train via one intermediate stop, Frankfurt main station (Hauptbahnhof). The complete trip takes about one hour and 20 minutes.
At the airport, get to Terminal 1 (if you arrived at Terminal 2, the “Sky line” will be faster and more comfortable than the bus shuttle). At Terminal 1, follow the signs “Bahnhöfe / Train stations”.
