…via the institute

Participants who arrive in the morning or early afternoon are welcome to visit our institute first. We will arrange transportation to the conference venue from the university.

When you arrive by train at Mainz Hauptbahnhof (main train station) take the bus number 54, 55, 58 or 68 (direction “Universität”, not “Uni-Kliniken”!) and get off at the stop “Friedrich-von-Pfeiffer Weg” (3rd stop). You can buy a ticket for 1.40 € from the bus driver. Tell him where you want to go and that this corresponds to no more than three stops in order to get that cheap rate: The ride from the railway station to the University is a “Kurzstrecke”, meaning short-distance ride. Cross the Saarstraße, on the pedestrian bridge close to the bus stop and follow the path marked in red on the map in the direction to Staudinger Weg 7 (near the Mensa).
