Accomodation

Frankfurt has a lot of hotels and hostels, and we do not provide a recommended conference hotel.
However, in the Google Map we provide several recommendations for hotels and hostels. Note that you can also use the official tourist website of Frankfurt to find and book hotel rooms.

Arriving by Plane

Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) is served by all major airlines. It is close to the city centre and is connected directly to the Frankfurt public transport network. The local S-Bahn trains take about 11 minutes to reach the city centre from the airport station.

Getting to the conference location from Frankfurt Airport:

Follow the airport signs to the regional station Regionalbahnhof (S), Terminal 1, B Concourse, Level 0. Trains to the main station and Frankfurt City go every 15 minutes, usually from platform 1; you need to buy a ticket from a vending machine before boarding the train (see notes on the local public transport). Take the regional trains (S-Bahn) S8 or S9 from there towards Frankfurt and stay on the train until you have reached Hauptwache. Then change to the underground route U1, U2, U3, or U8 (all directions but the Südbahnhof direction) and and get off the train at Holzhausenstraße/Uni Campus Westend. From there it is a 5-minute walk to the campus.

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport (HHN) is about 150 km away from Frankfurt, there is a bus connection between the airport and Frankfurt Main Station (Hauptbahnhof). (see Arriving by Train for a description on how to get to the conference location from Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof)

Arriving by Train

Frankfurt's main train station (Frankfurt am Main Hauptbahnhof) is connected to the high-speed railway network and serves lots of destinations in Germany and Europe. Germany's most important railway company is Deutsche Bahn.

Getting to the conference location from Frankfurt main station:

You need to buy a ticket from a vending machine before boarding the train (see notes on the local public transport). Take the regional trains (S-Bahn) S1/2/3/4/5/6/8/9 from the main station (Hauptbahnhof) to Hauptwache (two stops) departing from platforms 101 and 102 (underground level). At Hauptwache change to the underground route U1, U2, U3, or U8 (all directions but the Südbahnhof direction) and get off the train at Holzhausenstraße/Uni Campus Westend. From there it is a 5-10-minute walk to the conference location.

Local public transport

Local public transport is operated by the Rhein-Main Verkehrsverbund (RMV). Tickets have to be bought from ticket machines immediately before boarding the trains, trams, or busses. The machines accept coins and bank notes (€5, €10). The tickets are valid throughout the town on buses, trams, underground, and regional trains. For more information, see the route map and the RMV Website.
