How to find us

The University Hospital is situated very near the center of Frankfurt on the south bank of the river Main. It is also well connected to the public transport network. If you are travelling from further afield, for example from the airport or the city center, you can reach us quickly and easily by taking the tram from the “Hauptbahnhof” (main railroad station) or / and “Südbahnhof”.

When using the Underground / Subway and rail the closest stops are Hauptbahnhof and Südbahnhof:

  • Tram
    from Hauptbahnhof, you take tram Numbers 12 or 21. From Südbahnhof you take tram Nr. 15. Convenient stops are Theodor-Stern-Kai (main entrance) and Heinrich-Hoffmann-Str. / Blutspendedienst for the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Orthopaedics, and the Department of Infectiology in Building 68.
  • Taxi
    A taxi rank is located at the main entrance (Theodor-Stern-Kai 7). As a rule you will find a taxi waiting. If you wish, you can also ask the nursing staff on your ward to call a taxi to the entrance you can reach most easily. The patient and visitors information in Building 23 C can also help you.


There is a shortage of parking space in and around the University Hospital, partly due to the many construction sites throughout the entire hospital premises.

  • Visitors will find a limited number of pay-and-display parking spaces at the main entrance, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7. Ticket machines are situated in the car park.

There is also a multi-storey car park in Sandhofstraße (behind the Blutspendedienst) on the hospital grounds. In the event of an extended stay in hospital we highly recommend you leave your car at home. A relative or friend can very probably drive you to the hospital. Otherwise take a taxi or use public transportation. If necessary for medical reasons, the referring doctor can arrange for transport by ambulance.

Parking on the hospital grounds will be at your own risk.

  • The hospital is not liable for any damage to person or property.
  • Statutory traffic regulations also apply to driving within the hospitals grounds.
  • Parking tickets due to unlawful parking are issued by the municipal authorities and penalties must be paid to them.
