Travel and hotel information
Airports and trains
These pdf files describe how to get to Ulm from the four closest airports:
Train schedules can be checked and tickets be purchased online. Alternatively, tickets can be bought at DB (Deutsche Bahn, German railways) counters or ticket machines at train stations or airports. The tickets can include metro train ("S-Bahn") sections (relevant for Stuttgart and Munich airport). The names of the stops are listed in the pdf files for the different airports.
Travel by car
Ulm can be reached via the German Autobahn A8 (connecting Stuttgart and Munich), exit “Ulm-West“, see also the airport pdf files. Parking information is included in the hotel pdf files. Since visitor parking is very limited at the University West campus, it is recommended to take a bus from your hotel to the workshop venue.
Hotels and local travel
Hotel information and maps as well as links to the hotel web pages are provided in this section.
Workshop hotels (booking deadline for reserved rooms: March 1, 2018):
Local transportation tickets (bus or tram) can be purchased at ticket machines or with the driver. They are valid for unidirectional travel and allow to change between buses and trams. A single ticket ("Einzelfahrschein") costs 2.20 €. If you travel as a group, a one-day group ticket ("Tageskarte Gruppe", up to five people) for 7.50 € is a good deal. However, from Monday to Friday it is valid only from 8:30 h. The buses and trams run about every 10 min. You find this information as well as bus and tram line numbers also in the hotel pdf files.
