🌱 Sustainable travel

Contribute to making UEFA EURO 2024 the greenest EURO to date!

Frankfurt, centrally located in the heart of Europe and Rhine-Main region, is an important transport hub with a well-connected main train station.

Be part of the effort to meet the tournament sustainability goals by:

✅ Choosing train or long-distance bus travel options over flights
Travelling by train will be the most convenient option to get around. Thanks to our partner Deutsche Bahn, match ticket holders are entitled to discounted national and international train tickets.

Discounted train tickets

✅ Using public transport to go between and within the Host Cities and avoid car travel 
Frankfurt ticket holders are entitled to a 36 Hour Travel Pass for the entire RMV (Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund) networks at no additional cost! The network covers a vast area beyond Frankfurt's city borders, including Mainz, Wiesbaden and Gießen, so you can discover the entire region by public transport.

36 Hour Travel Pass

⛔ Stadium parking
No public parking will be provided at Frankfurt Arena and matchday traffic will significantly increase your journey times. Give your wheels a break and use public transport instead.

🌍 Know before you go

Take the time to check you have all the relevant valid documents for travelling to Germany.

Coming from within the EU / Schengen Area

You can travel to Germany using your national ID card or passport. It’s also good to carry ID on you at all times, as you may need it to check in to your accommodation, or in the event of requiring assistance with your match ticket at the stadium.

Entering from outside of these areas (from the UK, for example)

You will need your passport and must go through border control. Your passport must meet both Schengen Area entry requirements:

✅Valid for at least 3 months after the date you intend to leave the EU
✅ Issued within the last 10 years

Some fans may also require a visa to gain entry into Germany, for example supporters from Türkiye. Visit Germany’s Federal Foreign Office website to check the complete list and apply for a visa.
