What is the best means of transportation, bus? Or is there a train? Thank you. BethVos
The best way is to take a train to Mannheim and change there into a direct train to Frankfurt airport. You can check times and fares on www.bahn.de

Hi [VT member 1258], I am on the website, what does this mean? Sorry, are these locations to pick up the connection? So sorry? Thank you [VT member 1258] your help. Bethvos
HBF = Hauptbahnhof = main train station. Your train from Kaiserslautern will take you to the main train station, and it's there that you change into the train to the airport.
The other stops are tram stops within Mannheim, the main station is the first one to show up on the bahn.de website.
You don't have to select anything out of the upcoming lists. You can just type in the city names or airport codes and proceed. The system will pick automatically the right train station for you.

The upcoming list is just name guessing. It can contain train stations or bus stops or whatever. DB timetable knows about all public transport in Germany. You can also query to/from any address.
There is also no reason to query to/from Mannheim separately. The DB timetable will find automatically the fastest connections for you.
