Workshop location

The workshop takes place in the computer science building (no. 45), Hörsaal 001.

Here is a map of the campus.

Getting to Saarbrücken

  • Traveling to Saarland University by plane: There are several possibilities.

    • The main airport serving Saarbrücken is Frankfurt Airport. It is a big international airport that is easy to reach from many locations. The train from there to Saarbrücken takes about two and a half hours.
    • Frankfurt/Hahn is not in Frankfurt, despite its name, but in the middle of the woods. It mainly serves flights from Europe. There are buses from there to Saarbrücken several times a day.
    • Also in the vicinity: Luxemburg airport and Strasbourg airport.
    • Saarbrücken itself has an airport, but it has planes mainly to and from very few holiday locations, and it is hard to reach by public transport.

  • Directions for traveling to Saarbrücken:

    • Traveling to Saarland University from Frankfurt Airport:

      The train from Frankfurt to Saarbrücken takes about two and a half hours.
      Frankfurt airport has two train stations: for regional trains (''Regionalbahnhof'') and IC/ICE trains (''Fernbahnhof''). As there are both regional and IC/ICE trains to Saarbruecken, go to whichever train station is closer and use the information terminal there to find out where the next train leaves. These terminals also sell tickets.

    • Traveling to Saarland University by car, by train, or from Saarbrücken airport? See the Saarland University location page.

Traveling within Saarbrücken

There is an interactive map of Saarbrücken.

You can buy a 3-day ticket (''3-Tages-Karte Stadt'', 9 Euro) for the local buses in the Saarbrücken main train station: Inside the train station, coming from the trains, turn right at the bakery. The tickets are sold in the VGS shop (''Verkehrsverbund''; green and black sign).
Alternatively, you can buy single tickets on the bus.
