We strongly recommend to fly in to Frankfurt International Airport (FRA). This is the most convenient airport for Würzburg. You should continue your journey by train. There's a station for long-distance trains inside of the airport. You can reach Würzburg from this train station directly, without changing trains.

When arriving at Frankfurt International Airport (FRA):

After Border Control, Baggage Claim and Customs, follow the signs to “Bahnhöfe” (train stations), “Fernbahnhof” (long distance trains), “Gleis (tracks) 4-7”. Fast trains to Würzburg usually start from platform 4 or 5, every hour.

The passage through Frankfurt International Airport can be complicated and lengthy. Watch for the signs. From gate to track it’s several stairs up and down. Plan about 60 minutes from landing to train departure.
