About The Location
We’ve prepared a list of useful information you’ll most probably needing to help you successfully find the location:
|Traveling By Plane From|
One of the closest airport is the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg25. The airport is only 70km away from Freiburg and offers over 450 scheduled flights per week to 50 different destinations in the whole of Europe, e.g. Berlin, Hamburg, London, Paris, Prague, Madrid, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Reykjavik and many more. From the Airport you can easily take a train26, bus27 or even a taxi. The taxi28, of course, is the most expensive solution.
Also close to Freiburg is the Aéroport international Strasbourg29. It is only about 60km from Freiburg. For information which Airline flies to this Airport, check the list of Airlines at their site30.
Another way to get to us by plane is to use the Baden-Airpark31 in Karlsruhe. It is about 100km away from Freiburg and you can use the ICE train to get to Freiburg. The Freiburger Airportservice32 picks you up at multiple airports and takes you to the exact location you need to go. Please note that you need to book this service before the start of your journey.
Last but not least you can get to Freiburg by flying to Frankfurt Airport36. Frankfurt is the biggest airport in Germany and thousands of – also international – direct flights are available to Frankfurt. The only issue with this airport concerning Freiburg is, that you have to take a train from there that needs approximately 2 hours for the 270km to Freiburg central station.
|Traveling By Train Or Car|
The central station in Freiburg is a 10–15 minute walk away from the the workshop venue. Since Freiburg lies within the network of the European railway system and is also an Intercity Express (ICE) station between Frankfurt and Basel, it is well accessible by rail from all directions. For example, 40 minutes from Basel or 2 hours from Frankfurt. See the following sites for detailed info:
Freiburg has a huge amount of parking areas and parking garages. Most of them are in walking distance of the workshop venues. Please check out Google Maps41, where we have marked the parking places for your convenience.
We Look Forward To Seeing You!
