Departing from London Victoria Coach Station it is possible to travel directly to Frankfurt. National Express offers a service that departs from London, uses the Dover ferry terminal to make the crossing to mainland Europe and then continues on to its final destination. The first service of the day departs at roughly 2:30 p.m. and the final coach leaves the station at about 9:30 p.m. The journey can take up to 14.5 hours depending on traffic levels and scheduled stop times. Like most major German city's Frankfurt has an autobahn system that circles it. This makes entry into the urban area easy. The main bus terminal is positioned in a city centre location which makes accessing other modes of transport for onwards journeys simple. Like most of the country, Frankfurt enjoys excellent transport links with a fully functional train and bus service that operates throughout the day and night.
One of the largest cities in Germany, Frankfurt is the economic centre of Europe. A truly global city, Frankfurt enjoys visitors from all over the world and as such has a bustling and vibrant cultural life. Perhaps the centre of this is Zeil Street in the heart of the city. Arguably one of the most famous and busiest shopping districts in Germany, Zeil is home to top designers, great bars and popular urban restaurants. Recently undergoing a huge redevelopment that saw a number of the roads in the area widened and a great many buildings improved, the area has been given a new lease of life. With a breathtaking new shopping arcade that boasts one of the most exciting, contemporary designs in Europe it really should not be missed.
