Frankfurt-Eschborn cycling classic: traffic closures on May 1

Frankfurt-Eschborn cycling classic: traffic closures on May 1

Numerous roads will be closed again for the Eschborn-Frankfurt cycling classic on Wednesday, May 1. Like car traffic, streetcar and bus lines will also be affected by the closures. S-Bahn and U-Bahn trains, on the other hand, will run largely unhindered and according to schedule.

The destination area at the Alte Oper can be easily reached by S-Bahn and U-Bahn. The Taunusanlage S-Bahn station, where lines S1 to S6, S8 and S9 stop, is just a few meters away. The subway lines U6 and U7 stop practically directly below the finish line, at the Alte Oper station.

The subway lines U4, U6 and U7 run with additional carriages and therefore offer more space than usual. The U4 and U6 lines also run at more frequent intervals.

Inform in good time and up to date

All information on timetables and detour is available from the RMV service telephone at 069/2424-8024 daily around the clock, on the Internet at and of course also in the RMVgo app.
