Best Time to Book a Flight to Hesse

Most tourists choose to book a vacation in Hesse during the spring or summer months. Between mid-March and May, the weather is usually cool and comfortable. By June, the temperatures rise significantly and range from warm to hot. As the state is filled with beautiful lakes and rivers, the warmer weather allows tourists to enjoy activities like swimming and canoeing.

Most areas in Hesse will experience below-freezing temperatures between December and February. Snow, however, is generally uncommon. Though it's cold, the weeks leading up to the Christmas holiday are actually a very popular time to visit the state. The Frankfurt Christmas Market, in particular, draws millions of tourists per year with food, music, gifts, and festivities.

Airport and Airline Options in Hesse

The best way to get into Hesse is via Frankfurt Airport (FRA), the busiest airport in the state and one of the busiest airports in all of Europe. The airport consists of two passenger terminals, with Terminal 1 used by Star Alliance airlines and Terminal 2 used by Oneworld and SkyTeam airlines. There is also a small, third terminal used exclusively for first class Lufthansa passengers. This luxurious terminal has amenities like a private restaurant, a cigar room, and a room for passengers to enjoy relaxing bubble baths.

Direct flights from Canada to Frankfurt are available on multiple airlines throughout the year. Via Air Canada, Condor, and Lufthansa, you can fly direct from Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ) or from Vancouver International Airport (YVR). You can also book direct flights from other major Canadian cities like Calgary, Montreal, and Ottawa.

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport (HHN) is another airport option in the state of Hesse. Despite the airport's name, HHN is actually located about an hour and a half from Frankfurt. The city of Kirchberg is the closest to the airport, at about 10 km east. The airport consists of two passenger terminals and is served by two airlines: Ryanair and Wizz Air. Both airlines are low-cost carriers. As there are no direct flight routes between Canada and Frankfurt-Hahn, most flights will include a layover in a big European city like Lisbon, Dublin, London, or Rome.

Frankfurt is easily the most popular tourist destination in the state, and as such, there is no shortage of things to see and do. Since the city is filled with historic buildings, monuments, and religious sites, taking a guided tour of the city is a great way to see and learn about everything.
