On Sunday, August 5, the big Frankfurt City Triathlon will take place again. <link https: www.frankfurt-tipp.de veranstaltungen s event frankfurt-city-triathlon.html _blank>You can find all info about the run HERE in our event calendar. When in and around the city around 2,500 athletes are on the move, this naturally leads to some traffic obstructions, to which also buses and trains must give way. This affects the period from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.
subway within the city, suburban railway to the surrounding area as an alternative
As an alternative to the car Frankfurt subways are recommended on Sunday, which run according to schedule. Limited S-Bahn services will be available on the last day of the S-Bahn tunnel closure.
