Railroad bridge over the Rhine near Mainz - Mainz

Railroad bridge over the Rhine near Mainz

The S-Bahn trains Review

The red train crossing the bridge in this photo is the S8, which has come from Hanau by way of Frankfurt and the Frankfurt airport.

From here it will go on to Mainz Süd (south station), Mainz Hauptbahnhof (central station) and from there to Mainz Nord (north station) before crossing back over the Rhine on another bridge in the direction of Wiesbaden.

You can take your bicycle for free on the S-Bahn in the Rhine-Main area, but you must have a ticket for yourself before boarding the train.

The S-Bahn trains are the only ones that stop at each and every stop along the way, and they are the only trains with no toilets, on the theory that people will use them for short rides only.
