Ulm University: Where we are and how to get here

Ulm - situated in the eastern part of Baden-Württemberg at the border to Bavaria - is easy to get to and very well connected to the transportation infrastructure. Several motorways (Autobahnen) and highways (Bundesstraßen) pass through Ulm or run directly past it. Numerous railway lines (Eisenbahnlinien) meet in Ulm - e.g. the high-speed train (ICE) Stuttgart - Munich, which is part of the main European traffic artery Paris - Budapest. The major airports Stuttgart, Munich and Frankfurt are easily reachable by train. There are closer regional airports in Memmingen and Friedrichshafen that are serviced regularly by public transport.
