Changes to the U-Bahn route (U3) next week

Due to permanent way work at Südbahnhof the U3 will be terminating in Frankfurt at Heddernheim next week.

Between 2am on Monday, 8th January and 3m on Monday, 15th January, 2018, there will be no trains travelling on the “A-Line” between Willy-Brandt-Platz and Südbahnhof.

The U3 will terminate at Heddernheim, from where U1 and U2 trains will continue to Willy-Brandt-Platz.  The U8 will not be running, but there will be an increased service on the U9 line.  To avoid changing platforms at Heddernheim, passengers travelling to Frankfurt with the U3 should alight at “Zeilweg” and then take the U1.

The S-Bahn line S5 also connects Oberursel with the Hauptwache and is not affected by the changes.

U-Bahn replaced with buses in Frankfurt in July

Due to work taking place on the line, the U-Bahn U3 will not be able to travel the entire length of the line to Frankfurt-Südbahnhof.

From Saturday, 1st July until Sunday, 16th July, 2017, the U3 will terminate at Heddernheim.  There, a replacement bus service will take passengers to Hügelstraße.  The section between Hügelstraße and Südbahnhof will operate as a shuttle service.

From Monday, 17th July until Sunday, 30th July, 2017, the U3 will terminate Hügelstraße.  A replacement bus service will take passengers to Dornbusch from where the shuttle service will continue to Südbahnhof.

To get to the centre of Frankfurt quicker, it may be better to take the S-Bahn S5 from Oberursel.  To reach some parts of the city, a better alternative may be to change to the U9 in Niederursel, travel to Ginnheim, and then take the tram line 16.

 

Changes to the U-Bahn route (U3) at the weekend

Due to permanent way work on the line the U3 will be terminating in Frankfurt at Heddernheim this weekend.

Between Good Friday (14th April) and Easter Monday (17th April), the U-Bahn trains will be replaced by buses in Frankfurt between Miquel-/Adickesallee and Südbahnhof.

The U3 will terminate at Heddernheim, from where U1 and U2 trains will continue to Miquel-/Adickesallee.  The U8 will not be running, but there will be an increased service on the U9 line.

The buses are unable to stop directly at Hauptwache, with the replacement bus stops at Goethestraße travelling south and Neue Mainzer Straße travelling north.

The S-Bahn line S5 also connects Oberursel with the Hauptwache and is not affected by the changes.

Tyre thieves caught in Frankfurt

Two men are accused of stealing a complete set of tyres from an Audi A5 in the early hours of Monday morning (25th January, 2016) in the Mauerfeldstraße in Weißkirchen.  The car was left on wooden blocks.

A witness spotted the theft take place at around 1.15am and called the police.  A short time later, a similar theft was reported in nearby Königstein, with the vehicle used to transport the tyres fitting the description of the one from Weißkirchen.  Armed with the registration number, police were able to look for it specifically and found it in Frankfurt in the Rebstock area at 2am.

The vehicle, a silver van, contained two sets of high-value tyres, one of which was the set from the Mauerfeldstraße.  The two suspects, aged 39 and 45, were arrested.  Both are of no fixed abode and were presented to the custody judge the same afternoon.

No U-Bahn or trams in Frankfurt on Wednesday

A strike in Frankfurt will mean that no U-Bahn trains or trams will be running on Wednedsay, 19th March, 2014.  A number of bus routes are also affected.

Some of the bus drivers will also be striking on Thursday and Friday.

Oberursel in particular will be affected by the U-Bahn not running.  To get to Frankfurt the best alternative will probably be the S-Bahn S5.

Changes to the U-Bahn at the weekend

Due to works on the U-Bahn network in Frankfurt at the weekend, the U3 line will not be running as usual.

On Friday evening (5th October, 2012) trains after 10pm and on Saturday (6th October) will terminate at Heddernheim from where a replacement bus service will continue into Frankfurt as far as Dornbusch.  A reduced service will be in operation between Dornbusch and Südbahnhof.

On Sunday (7th October), the U3 line will be diverted to Nord-West-Stadt and will terminate at Ginnheim.  Buses at Nord-West-Stadt will connect with Dornbusch.

The line U8 will not be running at all during this time, to travel to Riedberg passengers will need to use the line U9.
