Die deutsche Bahn AG
Intercity trains or ICE are the high speed trains (280 km/h) that link big cities together. Since 1991, 60 intercity trains have been used. They link Hambourg-Hannovre-Kassel-Francfort -Stuttgart-Munich.
Since 1990, EuroCity (EC) trains are used too, to travel in Europe.
Around the city of Frankfurt, you have some high-speed trains ((S)-Bahn) and the metro in town ((U)-Bahn). The city has also buses and a tramway.
Several tariffs - ask the station what is the best one according to your journey. Here below are some examples:
Buses are often the only transport to go to surrounding villages and often do only one return trip a day.
Although motorways are free and maintained in Germany, the traffic is still busy in certain areas (Francfort, Stuttgart, Munich, Berlin et Düsseldorf).
There is no speed limit on German motorways.
