Night of the Museums: How to get there by bus and train

<link https: ffm-aktuell s ugc nacht-der-museen-2017-programm-wurde-vorgestellt.html _blank>Important info around the program of the NACHT DER MUSEEN 2017 we had already presented to you HERE. Who travels with public transport to this great culture night in the city, which gets here all other tips:

(kus) Art and emotion promises this year's Night of Museums on May 6. More than 40 museums and exhibition venues in Frankfurt and Offenbach will open their doors from 7pm to 2am, offering a wide range of art and culture as well as a varied supporting programme. Free special buses will shuttle between the museums, historic trams between the Zoo and Gallus, and a shuttle boat on the Main between the Städel and Eisernem Steg.

RMV and traffiQ recommend buses and trams on which the regular RMV fare applies for travel to and from the Night of the Museums. Until about one o'clock in the morning, most lines run as scheduled, then the night buses are on the road. In addition, extra S-Bahn trains will be used for the Night of the Museums and the closing time of several underground and tram lines will be moved to around 2.30 a.m. - half an hour after the closing time of the museums. Detailed information is available in the Night of the Museums programme booklet, on the RMV service telephone on 069/24248024 or on the Internet at <link http: _blank>

Additional suburban trains, more subways and night buses

On the S-Bahn lines S1, S3, S5 and S6, there will be one additional trip each night. On the S-Bahn line S8 there will be two special trips per direction. For this, even extra otherwise usual nightly construction work in the Frankfurt S-Bahn tunnel will be interrupted, so that these trains between Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof and Offenbach stop at all usual S-Bahn stops such as Konstablerwache or Offenbacher Marktplatz.

The underground lines U2 (Südbahnhof - Nieder-Eschbach), U4 (Seckbacher Landstraße - Bockenheimer Warte) and U7 (Hausen - Enkheim) as well as the tram lines 11 (Höchst - Fechenheim) and 16 (Ginnheim - Oberrad Balduinstraße) will run every half hour beyond the regular end of service until around 2.30 am. Tram line 15 will run every 15 minutes instead of every 30 until around 1:15 a.m. The U1, U2, U3, U4, U7 and U8 subway lines also offer more space as they run with three cars until the end of service.

The "Museumsuferlinie" 46 also runs between Sachsenhausen and the Europaviertel until 2.30 a.m., but between Stresemannallee/Gartenstraße and Frankensteiner Platz it uses the "flea market diversion" via Gartenstraße.

The Frankfurt night bus lines n1 to n8, n41, n62 and n63 will run as scheduled from 1.30 am to 3.30 o'clock in all Frankfurt districts and to Offenbach - mostly half-hourly, the lines n2 (in the direction of Ginnheim), n5 (in the direction of Bornheim, Bergen-Enkheim and Riederwald), n7 (in the direction of Schwanheim) as well as n8 (to Höchst) even run quarter-hourly. Lines n62 and n63 will be rerouted due to construction work in Oberrad.

Regional night bus lines can be used for trips into the region. Scheduled services n31 and n32 run to Oberursel and Bad Homburg, departing from Konstablerwache at 1.30am, 2.30am and 3.30am respectively. The regional lines n65, n71 and n82 offer more space due to the use of articulated and additional buses. As always, it is possible to change conveniently between all lines at the night bus hub Konstablerwache.

Around four o'clock, the first buses and trains then leave the depots again and offer early homecomers good connections according to the Sunday timetable.
