Frankfurt Red light District

Does anyone know howfar is Franfurt redlight from the airport and can it be fesible to check it out within five hours stay during the day time?

Is it easy to check it via bus/transit. I heard security takes too long on the flights getting back to us.

I appreciate any help.

Usually people ask how to avoid it. But OK... At least someone is being honest on here ;-)

It's exactly 18 minutes from the airport. From Terminal 1 follow signs to "Local trains station" (there also is another train station) and then take any East-bound S8 or S9 train to Hauptbahnhof (main train station).

Leave the station thru the main gate, cross the street and walk into Kaiserst. (the street pointing to the middle of the main gate) and walk it for around 100 yards.

BINGO! Check the side streets as well ;-) The one parallel to Kaiserst on the left (as seen from the station) must be quite popular. I've got to drive right thru it quite frequently and cars with license plates from all over South-Western Germany seem to be looking for parking in there ;-)...

fields D/E 5/6

roughly the blocks covered by the name "Platz der Republik"

In the Kaiserstrasse itself there are only a few s*x shops left. Which alone won't count for a red light district in Germany. You can find such shops also at the airport.

S-Bahn trains from the airport (basement of Terminal 1) to Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) need only 11 minutes. From there it's only a short walk.

> I heard security takes too long on the flights getting back to us.

This is something you have to check with your airline. For flights to the US security takes really long. You normally have to check-in 2,5-3 hours before departure for flights to the US.
