Heading for Planes and Trains

The long-distance train station at the airport of Frankfurt/Main is one of 5.400 train stations in Germany. It’s operated by the German railroad company Deutsche Bahn. The station went into service 1999. It measures approx. 700 m. in length, 50 m. in width and 45 m. in height. The station is divided into two main levels. The trains operate on the lower level, the passengers can change tracks and head to the airport via the upper level (distribution level). The large glass dome, which spans the distribution level is clearly visible in the panorama.

Outside the dome you can see The Squaire, which currently (2016) is Germany largest office building. It was built between 2006 and 2010 on top of the existing train station.
