Getting To And From Erfurt Airport
It is simple and wonderfully convenient to reach Erfurt Airport from the city center via public transportation.
The Erfurt trams are a perfect way to transfer to the airport. You can take city rail line 4 from the main train station to connect. The trams run every 10 minutes and the journey takes only 20 minutes. Then it’s a simple three-minute walk to the terminal.
The long-distance trains don’t stop at the airport, but it is still an easy journey. Once outside the main station, simply hop aboard tram number 4. It will take you only 20 minutes by tram, and another 3 minutes by foot to reach the terminal.
Bus number 99 connects the airport to the main train and bus stations.
Forgotten your toothbrush? Then make you way to the Airshop inside of ERF. Here you can pick up any forgotten or lost items, as well as reading materials and snacks for the trip ahead.
The Airport Bistro provides not only sustenance for your long journey, but also a beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding areas. Nice!
