How to reach Darmstadt
If you arrive at Frankfurt Airport, there is a bus line, the HEAG Airliner (Darmstadt), which will take you directly to Darmstadt. It runs daily, usually 30 minutes; the current bus timetable is provided by HEAG mobiBus GmbH & Co. KG. The Airliner leaves the airport from the bus station at Terminal 1 (Haltebucht 14) and Terminal 2. After approximately half an hour drive, you will reach Darmstadt and can get off at Darmstadt Central Train Station (Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof). All buses and trams in Darmstadt stop here and are included within your Airliner ticket so that you can easily reach your final destination in Darmstadt.
If you are arriving by train, Darmstadt's central train station (Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof) will be the first thing you see. From there, the venue and most of the hotels are at walking distance. If you want, you can reach the city center (Luisenplatz), as well as the university's main campus within 6 minutes by taking either the F, K or H bus line. You may also take the tram lines 2, 3 and 5. All these buses and trams leave every 15 minutes.
Darmstadt can easily be reached by car via Autobahn A67 and A5. How you reach either of these highways is up to you and depends of course on which direction you come from. However, here is a city map so that you can find your way once you arrive in Darmstadt!
