It is planned to offer a special ticket for public transport within the city of Darmstadt during the Conference. It will be included in the registration fee.

How to get to Darmstadt:

Darmstadt is approx. 30 km south of Frankfurt/M. Darmstadt and TU Darmstadt are well connected and easily accessible by car, train, or air:


You can reach Darmstadt from motorways A5 (from Frankfurt/M. – Heidelberg/Basel) and A67 (from Cologne/Wiesbaden – Mannheim). From motorway junction ‘Autobahnkreuz Darmstadt’, follow the signs towards the city centre Darmstadt/Stadtmitte on Rheinstraße/B26 into the City-Ring-Tunnel. In the City-Ring-Tunnel, take the exit left, then at the end of Hügelstraße, bear right at the traffic light onto Nieder-Ramstädter Straße. Follow the road for about 1km (0.6 miles), turn left onto Heinrichstraße and follow the signs to TU-Lichtwiese.

For information on parking options on Campus Lichtwiese, please refer to our mobility management site.

To get to Campus TU-Lichtwiese by public transport, take the bus K to Lichtwiese/Mensa to the final stop TU Lichtwiese/Mensa. The Busstop is just at the train station. You may also take the Odenwaldbahn (VIAS) to Darmstadt TU-Lichtwiese Bahnhof.

Every two hours, R 65 (Odenwaldbahn) travels directly from Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof to Darmstadt TU-Lichtwiese station in approximately 25 minutes

Take the Bus K or KU and exit at stop “TU Lichtwiese Mensa” (last stop). The conference venue is just opposite the bus stop. Alternatively, take tram Nr 9 to Böllenfalltor and get off at the stop “Hochschulstadion”. From there it is a walk of about 10 minutes.


The international airport Frankfurt Rhein-Main is located 25 km (15.5 miles) from Darmstadt. At the airport, regional bus lines depart from arrivals area B at Terminal 1 and arrivals areas D+E at Terminal 2. We recommend the express bus AirLiner (Terminals 1 and 2), which offers a convenient and fast 30-minute connection from the airport to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main station).
