Practical information

HOW TO GET TO ESO

The workshop venue can be easily reached with the U-Bahn (subway) U6. The U6 brings you directly to the centre of Garching (stop Garching) and to ESO, (last stop, Forschungszentrum). Most of the hotels in Garching are centrally located near the U-Bahn, indicated with a large blue "U"-sign.

If you leave from Garching, please take the U6 destination "Garching Forschungszentrum" (Garching Research campus) to the last stop at either 07:46, 07:56 or 08:06 to reach ESO & EUROfusion on time. Exit the station at the rear end of the train and follow the sign for ESO.
For different public transport travel schedules you can also use the public journey planner.

If the weather is nice, ESO can also be reached by foot from the centre of Garching in approximately 25 minutes.
