How to transit at Frankfurt airport? I will fly from Gothenburg (Sweden), and transit in Frankfurt. Then I continue to Hanoi (Vietnam). I need guidance on how to go from T1 to T2 in Frankfurt, including passing through security checks.

    Just follow the signage... isn't it?? – Travelling Juggernaut Dec 17 '17 at 21:35
  • Yes, it’s just follow the signage. Should not be hard. If you actually need to transit from terminal 1 to 2, the sky train seems like the most likely option for you. – Jan Dec 18 '17 at 2:30
  • Don't worry, Frankfurt is Germany, its not as bad as transiting in the US. There are signs and in case of doubt people who speak (recognizable) English. First of all you don't need to worry about your luggage, it will be forwarded automatically (check your baggage label). Just follow signs, don't get distracted by shops or restaurants until you reach your departure area. – Michael Renper Dec 18 '17 at 11:49
  • AFAIK you don't need to go through another security check if you only transit from one terminal to the other. You are not "entering the country" in any legal sense. – waka Dec 18 '17 at 14:39

    @waka: Whether going from Sweden to Germany counts as entering the latter is not really a pertinent question (though in most contexts I would say it does) -- but the asker will need to pass through a passport check in Frankfurt, for leaving the Schengen area. – Henning Makholm Dec 18 '17 at 17:17

My grandmother recently faced a similar issue so I've sent her a few videos of people transiting through FRA:

You can also study a map of the airport to get a better understanding of where you have to go.
