Arriving by Train

Assuming you arrive at Hauptbahnhof (the main station), since there is no direct bus line from Hauptbahnhof to the Computer Science building, you can either take a cab to Mies-van-der-Rohe-Straße, Informatikgebäude (costs about € 10) or walk to a bus stop nearby (about 5 minutes):

  • When exiting the main train station, cross the street (Römerstraße), and enter Bahnhofstraße.
  • Follow Bahnhofstraße to the intersection Bahnhofstraße-Theaterstraße.
  • Turn left and go to the bus stop Wallstraße on the opposite side of Theaterstraße.
  • Take line 33 with destination Uniklinik or Vaals.
  • After approx. 20 minutes get out at Halifaxstraße.
  • Enter the building right next to the bus stop, then follow the directions to Building E1.

Some regional trains also call at Westbahnhof (West station) from where you can walk to the Computer Science building (about 15 minutes) or take line 33 to Halifaxstraße (about 5 minutes).

Other bus lines going from the city centre to Halifaxstraße are lines 12, 22 and 23 (destination Campus Melaten).
