Pros
IconICE train station directly at the airport
IconQuick
IconClean
Cons
IconSomewhat unpunctual
IconAccording to
IconIndividual sockets did not work
The direct ICE stop at Frankfurt airport makes the journey home after a flight extremely quick and uncomplicated. The train and the toilets were very clean and it was easy to find free seats. Unfortunately, the train was 5-10 minutes late at departure, but this did not increase, so that the connecting train in Mannheim on to Karlsruhe could be reached. Despite the relatively empty train, it was a bit noisy and unfortunately some sockets did not work.
