Welcome to Frankfurt: Arrival at Frankfurt Airport

Awarded the official TÜV seal of quality, “Safe against Covid-19”, all of Frankfurt Airport’s processes have been optimally adapted to deal with the current situation. Numerous hygiene measures have been put into place to protect travellers and airport staff from infection. These include, amongst others, the mandatory wearing of medical facemasks, the adherence to social distancing rules and the laying-down of floor marking. Further measures include contact-free access to security checkpoints and boarding gates as well as ample disinfectant dispensers placed at key contact points throughout the terminals.

Returning travellers and arrivals from risk areas are given the opportunity of taking a PCR or antigen quick test directly at the airport. The test centres are located between Terminal 1 and the long-distance train station. They are easy to find, simply follow the floor markings and signposts.

Depending on the Covid-19 situation in the country of departure, as well as the current infection status in Germany, a negative Covid-19 test result as well as a multiple-day quarantine stay may be a legal requirement for entry into Germany. Exceptions may apply to vaccinated and recovered persons.

Getting about in and around Frankfurt: Safe and secure in trams, trains and busses

FrankfurtRhineMain’s public transportation networks are doing everything they can to ensure safe and worry-free travel to Frankfurt and within. Medical masks must be worn on busses, trains and trams, in the train stations themselves and on the platforms. The same applies to bus and tram stops and subway and commuter train stations. In busses, acrylic panels fixed at the driver’s cabin help to protect both passengers and the driver. Moreover, the doors of all means of transport (excluding older trams) are automatically opened by the driver. Railway carriages and frequently used subway stations are being cleaned and sanitised more often, while emergency call boxes and ticket vending machines are also being disinfected more regularly. Tickets may also be purchased contact-free via smartphone.

Similar health and safety measures have also been put into place on the regional and long-distance transport networks. You’ll also find disinfectant stations at various locations throughout Frankfurt Main Train Station. Masks must be worn throughout the station’s reception hall and in the platform areas.

As safe and secure as at home: Your hotel stay

In accordance with the German Infection Protection Act hotels and other accommodation establishments are allowed to reopen in Hesse.
Frankfurt’s hotels have implemented a comprehensive hygiene concept that will make you feel as safe and secure as at home. Aside from requiring guests to wear a medical facemask, they have increased cleaning intensity so as to ensure even greater cleanliness in all public areas and hotel guest-rooms. In the hotel restaurants, limited seating and a customised food and beverage offer ensure that guests are able to enjoy their dining experience without worry.

Your event: Messe Frankfurt and Frankfurt’s event locations

The Frankfurt Fair & Exhibition Centre (Messe Frankfurt) has naturally made sure that the health and wellbeing of visitors, exhibitors, service partners and staff is treated with absolute priority. Their comprehensive concept has seen the implementation of various hygienic, medical and organisational measures, all of which are aimed at safeguarding the health and wellbeing of persons attending the fairgrounds. Contact-free security checkpoints and venue entry as well as electronic admission tickets ensure that direct contact is reduced to an absolute minimum. Moreover, key points of contact are being disinfected much more often. Broad aisles and laneways, one-way traffic regulations as well as floor and distancing markings make it much easier to keep at a safe distance from others. Finally, the fair’s ultra-modern ventilation system allows up to 100% fresh-air supply in all exhibition halls.

Comprehensive hygiene concepts have been implemented in all other locations in FrankfurtRhineMain as well, thereby guaranteeing the worry-free holding of your event.

Cosy conclusions: Enjoy the fine foods of Frankfurt free of worry

The culinary offerings of the metropolis on the River Main are as international and colourfully diverse as Frankfurt itself. With a limit on seating, special menus, and far-reaching hygiene measures in place, you and your colleagues or business partners have the opportunity of enjoying the end of the working day, without worry, at one of our city’s countless restaurants. The City of Frankfurt has afforded restaurant operators the right to use certain public spaces for outdoor dining until the end of 2021, provided they are granted a special use permit. With this permit, they are given the chance to expand their open-air seating capacity and make al-fresco dining more pleasant – and more safe.

From A to B with taxi-cabs

To make taxi rides as safe as possible, many vehicles have been fitted with transparent partition panels between the front and back seats. Both drivers and passengers must wear medical facemasks in taxis at all times. The vehicles are regularly aired out and the key contact areas are disinfected after every ride.

Stay healthy and well and see you in Frankfurt very soon!
