Here is a map with all relevant sites of the Neuenheim Campus.

Information on getting around in Heidelberg is available.

Public transportation in Heidelberg is excellent. Detailed information about reaching the guest house and the workshop site will be put here shortly.

Heidelberg is 90 km south of Frankfurt/Main. It can be easily reached from Frankfurt Airport by train.

There is a shuttle service between Frankfurt airport and Heidelberg provided by TLS, which we have used in the past. They pick you up at the airport and drive you to any place in Heidelberg you want. It is possible to make reservations by email. For rides to Frankfurt, you should confirm the reservation one day before, for rides from Frankfurt a confirmation is not necessary, you just show up at the meeting point.

The Lufthansa shuttle bus between Frankfurt airport and Heidelberg center leaves Frankfurt every full hour; the shuttle bus is listed as a connection between Frankfurt and Heidelberg in the Lufthansa timetable.

The nearest airport served by the low-cost carrier Ryanair is Frankfurt-Hahn. There is a shuttle bus between Frankfurt-Hahn and Heidelberg, this and other possible connections are listed in the Deutsche Bahn timetable


We have made reservations for the guest house of the SRH seminar center, on the campus of the Fachhochschule Heidelberg. The campus is somewhat boring, but they offer very nice rooms for a reasonable price. A single room is about 51 Euro, a double room about 67 Euro per night, including breakfast. The guest house is roughly in walking distance to the workshop site, and only a couple of minutes by bus from the workshop site, the main station, and the old center of Heidelberg.

In case you want to stay in the guest house, we need to know the dates of your arrival and departure as soon as possible!
Please let us know if you need further information or assistance.

You can find a list of hotels and pensions on the web page of the Heidelberg Convention and Visitors Bureau. The prices for a single room (including breakfast) start from 60 Euro.

Hotels within walking distance to the workshop site are Café Frisch (its rolls are much better that its home page; click on the name, then on the item Hotel on the left) and the expensive Marriott Hotel. If you want to be in the old center of Heidelberg, you might consider to stay at the Hotel Weisser Bock. Hotels very close to the main station are the noisy, but air-conditioned IBIS Hotel and the more quiet and more charming Hotel Central.
