    The regional train to Limburg an der Lahn

    Limburg has two train stations, the main central station for regional trains and the eastern station for ICE trains. The eastern station is unusual in that it serves ONLY high speed trains and nothing else, and even then only a few of the trains that pass along this line stop at this small town. By ICE train it's about 30 minutes from Frankfurt, 45 minutes from Cologne and 20 minutes from Frankfurt airport. From the regional station there are direct trains to Frankfurt roughly every hour and they take about an hour.

    How to reach Limburg by car

    Parking guidance system

    If you want to come by car, you can take the highway A3 Köln/Cologne - Frankfurt. Limburg even has two exits on this highway - Limburg Nord (north) and Limburg Süd (south). If you drive from one exit to the other, you pass the bridge over the river Lahn from where you have a nice view on the cathedral. If you want to go to the center, the north exit may be a bit closer, but it doesn't really matter which one you take.

    If you come from north east (using highway A45, for instance), you better take the streets B54 (from Siegen) or B49 (from Giessen). It would be take you out of your way if you tried to drive only on highways - besides these streets offer you a nice opportunity to drive through the Westerwald mountains!

    Parking in Limburg is not difficult as there is a parking guidance system which shows you where you find a parking and how much parking spaces are available.

    How to reach Limburg by train

    Place at the station in the center

    You can easily reach Limburg by train. There are connections from Frankfurt, Köln (Cologne), Koblenz and Gießen. The railway from Koblenz to Gießen via Limburg is along the river Lahn, really nice!

    From Frankfurt, you can take the ICE (intercity express). It's about 20 minutes then (from Frankfurt airport). Unfortunately they run only every 2 hours. And please note that the ICE station is outside of Limburg. Do not confuse it with the station in the centre of Limburg! There are busses from the ICE station to the center, though.
    You can also take a "usual" train from Frankfurt. From Frankfurt main station, it's about 1 hour drive, and you will arrive in Limburg at the station in the centre. Direct trains usually run once a hour (sometimes more often). It's also possible to take the S-Bahn number 2 to Niedernhausen and frome there take a train to Limburg.

    From Köln/Cologne, the fastest way by train is to take the ICE. It takes about 40 minutes and you'll arrive at the ICE station in Limburg. Trains run about each hour. Another possibility is to go via Koblenz, but although you'll see nice landscapes, I'd rather prefer the ICE - it's much faster!
