Accommodations and Travel

Note to conference members who have not booked a hotel room yet: it is highly recommended to book a hotel room as soon as possible. Most offers for preallocated hotel rooms are only valid until August 17, 2007. Since the conference takes place at the same time as the famous Munich Oktoberfest, a shortage of hotel rooms is to be expected.

Directions on how to get to Augsburg from the airport, as well as a map of the area, are given on the lower half of this page, just below the list of hotels. Click here to go there directly.

For preferred rates and allocations rooms must be reserved before August 17, 2007. Please book your room as early as possible. The famous Oktoberfest is being celebrated at the same time in Munich. This can lead to room shortages in the whole Greater Munich area, which includes Augsburg.

Each hotel listed below has access to the internet except where indicated otherwise.

You can reach the conference site, which is the University of Augsburg, Experimental Physik IV by tram number 3 (“Straßenbahn” 3) in about 10 minutes from the Central Station (“Hauptbahnhof”) or right from the center of Augsburg (Königsplatz).

Members of the Conference will get a badge which allows them to travel with local transport of Augsburg (tram/bus) for free.

The map below shows the conference sites and all of the hotels listed above. (To see the two hotels located south of Augsburg city, Hotel Prinz Leopold and Hotel Zeller, click and drag the visible area, and/or zoom out using the controls on the upper left.) The thick blue line marks a part of tram line 3, which connects Augsburg Central Train Station with the Königsplatz (the city’s main public transporation hub) and the conference sites on the University campus, as well as the Fachhochschule Augsburg where the Arts Program will take place. (Unfortunately, the tram line does not seem to be displayed in some versions of Internet Explorer. We apologize for the inconvenience.)

Public transportation in Augsburg

(This information with accompanying maps is also available in the conference program.)

All tram lines intersect at Königsplatz, the city’s main transportation hub. To change lines, you have to go to Königsplatz first. Also, many conference hotels are within walking distance from Königsplatz.

The most important tram line for the conference members is tram number 3, with the end points ‘Stadtbergen’ and ‘Inninger Str.’, respectively. Line 3 connects the Augsburg central train station with the University of Applied Sciences (called Fachhochschule Augsburg, location of arts exhibitions) and the campus of the University of Augsburg (the main conference site). The end point of the tram line is always being displayed on the front and sides of the tram. It tells you in which direction the tram is currently travelling. Inside the tram, the next stop is always being announced and/or displayed.

To get to either conference site from downtown Augsburg, take line 3 in direction ‘Inninger Str.’. It leaves at Königsplatz platform ‘F’ every 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the current day and time.

The live arts exhibition at the University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule Augsburg) is only two stops away from Königsplatz: after getting off the tram at ’Rotes Tor’, it is just a three-minute walk along ‘Rote-Torwall-Staße’” to the Fachhochschule.

The University campus is roughly a 10 minute ride from Königsplatz. The stop to get off the tram is called ‘Universität’. There will be signs guiding you from the tram stop to the conference sites nearby.

To get back to downtown from either site, get on any line 3 tram towards Stadtbergen. It will arrive at Königsplatz platform ‘G’. From there, you can either walk back to your hotel (in most cases), or change tram and bus lines, or catch a taxi.
