By plane: Frankfurt International Airport is the closest and most convenient airport for Heidelberg. It is also possible to take Ryanair to ”Frankfurt Hahn” but be warned that it is a very long way to Heidelberg and the dedicated bus connections are infrequent.

Trains leave directly from the airport. Usually you will need to switch trains in Mannheim. Click here to plan your journey by train. You can take a taxi from Heidelberg main station to "Neuenheimer Feld" (give the building number), the distance is less than 2 km.
