Travel and Venue

Traveling to Karlsruhe

Plane

The nearest airports for long-distance visitors are Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden.

  • Frankfurt
    This is probably the most convenient option. The long-distance train station is in close proximity of the airport. Once you get there, take a train to Karlsruhe (approximately one hour, hourly, every other hour with change in Mannheim).
  • Stuttgart
    Take local train S2 or S3 to Stuttgart main station, then change to a train to Karlsruhe.
  • Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden (Baden-Airpark)
    This airport is mostly served by inner-European low-cost carriers. The buses available at Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport will take you to the train stations of Rastatt or Baden-Baden where you will find trains leaving to Karlsruhe. The Baden-Airpark-Express line will take you to Karlsruhe Hauptbahnhof.

Train

Karlsruhe main station can be reached via ICE from many other train stations in Germany/Europe. There is also a direct connection to Frankfurt am Main Airport (takes about 1 hour). The train from Geneva takes about 4:40 h.

Car

Karlsruhe is also easily reachable by car, with highways A5 and A8 just outside the city. Parking might be problematic though, as the campus is close to the city center.
