Directions to Kassel and the Conference

Kassel is located in the center of Germany. North-south long distance train lines routinely stop here.

By plane:

Fly into Frankfurt (FRA). From there, take the long-distance trains (the station is located inside the airport) north: Kassel is either the first or the second stop on the line, and the train ride takes around two hours. To check train schedules, visit the website of Deutsche Bahn and look for trains going from Frankfurt Flughafen to Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe. This is our long-distance train station.

To get to the conference site from here, take the tram downtown.

Right outside the Kassel train station's main entrance, there are city trams leaving regularly in the direction of the city center. Take tram 1 (direction "Holländische Straße"; they're the going towards your right when exiting the station). Get off at "Holländischer Platz/Universität" (NOT at the first stop that has the word "Universität" in it; that is another campus.) From this tram stop, you can see the campus on the other side of the large intersection at which you got off (the glass building is part of campus). From here, there will be signs guiding you to the exact conference site.

Alternatively, there are taxicabs waiting at the train station's exit.
