  Poor Security at Night in this Station
by Weissdorn

Before you are warned, you should know that the Frankfurt Metro System (VGF / RMV) is reliable and safe. It's just that there's one station that sort of invites petty criminals because of its shape: the Eschersheimer Tor Station. It has very long narrow, angled pedestrian tunnels and equally long side connecting tunnels, which make security surveillance (in addition to surveillance cameras) difficult. Thieves and robbers are aware of this. This is why it is a pretty good idea to avoid getting on or off the U-1, U-2 or U-3 at this station after 8:00 p.m. It's better to walk the two blocks and use the subway at the Hauptwache Station (even if you're going in the other direction), because security is better.
