By Train and Public Transportation

We recommend travelling to the conference by train. The Deutsche Bahn timetable provides detailed information on connections.

The nearest DB railway station is Gießen mainstation, which is on the main DB line Frankfurt-Marburg-Kassel and is served by local, RE and IC trains at least every hour.

Gießen can also be reached by train from Cologne/Ruhrgebiet-Siegen-Wetzlar, Gelnhausen-Lich and Fulda-Alsfeld.

You can reach the Campus Seltersberg from the railway station as follows:

By public transport:
- From Giessen railway station, take bus lines 10 or 378 to "Naturwissenschaften",
- from the city centre with bus lines 3 or 13 to "Ludwig-Uhland-Schule".

On foot from the railway station in 20-25 minutes:
From the railway station, turn right to the stairs. Climb the stairs and cross the pedestrian bridge into Friedrichstraße. Follow it until you reach the Frankfurter Straße junction. Continue straight ahead on Friedrichstraße until you turn right onto Arndtstraße. Cross the Aulwegen and follow the footpath opposite the "Arndtstraße" bus stop. Now follow the signs.
