Directions by Train

If you are travelling to Essen by train, it is best to use the public transportation system to get to the conference venue. If you come from Essen main station, we recommend you take the underground lines U11 or U17 since the underground station Universität Essen is located right next to the conference venue. At the station, take exit A towards the university and follow the signs.

Alternatively, one may arrive at Rheinischer Platz via one of the tram lines 101/106, 103, 105 or 109. Take the exit  "Universität'' when you reach the upper level and use the campus map.

One may also take one of the bus lines 166 or SB16 to Universität Essen or bus lines 145 or 196 to Rheinischer Platz.


The tariff zone for Essen is A3. Single tickets cost 2,90 EUR. Short distance tickets ("Kurzstrecke") cost 1,70 EUR and are an option if you travel 3 stations or less without changing lines. Valid for bus, tram and underground. Buy this ticket if you take U11 or U17 from Essen main station to Universität Essen with no prior connections.
