First of all, a disclaimer: while you're probably right that flying to Hahn is the cheapest option, it almost certainly isn't the easiest option. If getting to and from Hahn airport sounds too awful to you, consider paying a bit more to fly to Paris (from where you can take a bullet train to Saarbrücken in under two hours) or to Frankfurt am Main (there are ...

Personally I would suggest looking for a different routing - as you've discovered Frankfurt-Hahn airport is a very long distance away from both Frankfurt itself, as well as from Frankfurt am Main airport. If you do decide to go ahead with this connection, there is a bus service that runs between the two airports, run by BOHR. Travel time is 90 minutes, and ...

Frankfurt Hahn is in the middle of the Hunsrück, a beautiful area with small forests and hills and countryside typical of the region. A good destination for family cycling trips. For example, there are a number of rail trails in the area, where former railways were converted into cycling tracks. Photo from Wikimedia Commons I've been cycling on the ...

One highlight is the Middle Rhine valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a picturesque region, has good wines and is crossed by the famous Rheinsteig hiking trail. You can choose either Koblenz or Mainz/Wiesbaden as a starting point to visit that region. From there you have good train connections. There is one line on the right hand side and one on the ...

You can also visit Mainz and Wiesbaden. They are very close to each other(on the both sides of Rhine) and well conected with public transport. Distance - 90km. Here is a link ...

Yes, that should be absolutely possible and a pretty nice route. There are bicycle paths along the river, and you should leave the river shortly after Zell and go along the Altlayer Bach towards Altlay. Interestingly, according to Google Maps, there is a shorter alternative route that continues down the Rhine, leaves it at Bad Salzig and includes a long ...

From the zip code you gave (=Postleitzahl) you want to reach Koenigstein im Taunus. This is accessible from Hahn airport, even though it is not the easiest and fastest trip. I could search it on the Deutsche Bahn and found a possible connection. You have to take the Bus 600 to Frankfurt Main station (Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof in German, sometimes shortened in ...

I found a list with some private parkings near the airport. The best options are: hahn-parking.de It costs only 2 EUR/day. There is no free transfer however it's only 2km from the airport. Taxi would costs about 7 EUR. No reservation required. EDIT: The link is broken, but the parking exists. The parking is on the Shell station near the airport. ...

You can use the website of Deutsche Bahn, the german rail operator. You're right, it's only a little bit over 100 kilometers, but all the trains I could find are between 2.5 and 5 hours. So it will really take some time to get there. Concerning the language, I think it shouldn't be a problem. In Germany you'll almost always find somebody that speaks a ...

I arrive in Frankfurt Hahn airport (a good 90mins drive from the city) at 9:15PM. No worries! The HHN airport is indeed far from Frankfurt, but the connections are not that bad. Just take the 10.30 pm bus. Ticket for an adult is 15€ (14€ if you buy it online). You find the bus schdules via the airport's official site: Getting there - by bus. Click ...

There is also a good website for routeplaning on bicycles, which will help you. You can even see the gradients of the road and have different options (only bicycle paths, the fastest path, the shortest path ...). I tried it myself and find it more accurate most times than google maps for bicycles. RadroutenPlaner My suggestion would be: take only bicycle ...

It is not necessary to travel through Frankfurt. You can take a bus from Hahn to Koblenz and catch a train there. Many northbound trains from Frankfurt to Köln and onwards go through Koblenz. And the fare from Hahn to Koblenz is a bit lower: 11.20 EUR vs. 15 EUR (or 14 EUR if you buy the tickets online). => Buses to and from Hahn Airport The full fare for ...

As has been pointed out, going through Frankfurt (Main) may not be necessary. Busradar gives a good overview of your options for bus and rail travel (they even include blablacar). In case you have to go to Frankfurt (Main) for some reason, your best guess is the 14€ bus, I'm not aware of any alternatives.
