Travel Information


Pooled taxis from Frankfurt to Giessen

If you wish to be taken from Frankfurt International Airport to Gießen in a pooled taxi, please fill in the form below. We can only organize a taxi transfer from Frankfurt International Airport (NOT Frankfurt Hahn). However, if you are flying to another airport and would like to meet other delegates arriving at that same airport at about the same time, you can still fill in this form and we will pass on your contact details to fellow travelers.

The fare is approximately 10 € per Person one way (if 4 persons share a taxi), which is cheaper than any other means of transport. The fare depends on the number of persons per taxi. We want to try and keep the waiting periods as short as possible, which means that some taxis might not be entirely full and thus the trip will cost a little more per person.
