How to get there

  • By plane: fly to Stuttgart Airport (STR). From there you can take a direct bus (about 1h) to Tuebingen (Lane 828). If you travel in a group you may also consider a taxi (60-70€, ask for fixed price). For timetables and other options to get to Tuebingen from the airport check https://www.bahn.de/en/view/index.shtml
  • By train: there are (almost) no long distance connections directly to Tuebingen. You will have to travel via Stuttgart Hbf (Main station). For train connections within Germany and Europe, check https://www.bahn.de/en/view/index.shtml
  • By coach: there are several coach services that offer direct links between Tuebingen and cities all over Europe. This is usually by far the cheapest yet most time consuming option. The biggest and most popular carrier is Flixbus. At https://www.checkmybus.de you find and compare offers by all carriers. 

Within Tuebingen:

Many hotels as well as the youth hostel are within walking distance (1-2 km) of the CPG venue. The bus stop 'Lothar-Meyer-Bau' is directly in front of the building and is served by the bus lines 1,2,6,7,21. If you arrive directly from the airport via bus, get out at 'Mohlstrasse' which is just 150m from the venue.
