By plane. The closest airport is Baden Airport, near Baden-Baden, with a number of low budget connections from all over Europe arriving daily. There are bus connections from the airport directly to Karlsruhe or nearby train stations to hop on one of the commuter trains to the city. Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is just an hour away from Karlsruhe by ICE train (either with a stopover or a change of trains in Mannheim). There are two trains leaving hourly from FRA to Karlsruhe and vice versa. We recommend to book a “flexible ticket (FlexTicket)” in advance (visit, so you can hop on any train towards Karlsruhe. Another option, somewhat further away is Stuttgart Airport. From the airport there are commuter trains to Stuttgart main station. There are several trains leaving to Karlsruhe every hour. The train ride takes about 1h. 

By train. Karlsruhe main station (Karlsruhe Hbf) is located in the city centre and is a hub that can be readily reached from several surrounding airports (Frankfurt ca. 1h, Baden Airport ca. 1h, Stuttgart, 1.5-2h) or by international trains from Basel SBB (Switzerland), Brussels, Munich or Paris.

Accommodation. Any place between Karlsruhe main station and KIT Campus South will be suitable to reach the symposium within less than 15-20 min by tram or on foot.


The symposium will take place at KIT Campus South directly in central Karlsruhe nearby the Karlsruhe castle. The university campus can be readily reached on foot or by tram (stop “Durlacher Tor / KIT” or “Kronenplatz”).
