getting to berlin from frankfurt

Hi everyone, i will be flying into frankfurt in june(27th). Its my first time in germany and i need help on how to get to berlin by train. i tried booking a train ticket online stating the frankfurt airport train station as my entry point. the options for tickets that came up, shows frankfurt main hb as my entry point. My flight arrives at 5.30am and the train shedule shows 2 direct train rides from frankfurt main. one at 8:13am and another at 10:13am. i would like to know how to get to frankfurt main hb from the airport and how long it takes, in order to choose a ticket.

Thank you.

First check if your airline offers Rail&Fly tickets. These would be by far the best deal (cheap and flexible tickets).


If you arrive at the airport you need also a connection (and a ticket if you can't get a Rail&Fly ticket) from the airport to Berlin.

DB timetable


Start: FRA FrankfurtAirport (will default to Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf or Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Regionalbf)

Destination: Berlin Hbf

Note that if you buy a savings fare (Sparpreis) ticket that such tickets are only good for the connection bought for. If your plane is late and you miss this connection the money for such a train ticket is lost.
