Frankfurt (Main) Taunusanlage station (German: Bahnhof Frankfurt (Main) Taunusanlage) is train station in the city centre of Frankfurt, Germany. It is served by eight S-Bahn lines (S1–S6, S8, S9).

The station was opened with the first section of the Frankfurt City Tunnel in May 1978. It consists of two tracks, surrounding a central platform.

Name[edit]

The name Taunusanlage refers to a section of the now demolished city walls, named in the 19th century after the nearby Taunusbahnhof (Taunus station) of the Taunus Railway.
