Travel and Accommodation

friedrich-eibner-freiburg-ansichten-einer-stadt-1995-frontispizGetting there:
The nearest airport is Basel but better flight connections are to Zurich and Frankfurt airports, both connected to Freiburg with fast and convenient train connections (ICE trains). In Frankfurt follow signs to ‘Train stations (‘Fernbahnhof’, tracks 4-7). By car the city can be reached via the A5 (exit Freiburg-Mitte). The city itself has excellent public transport facilities (bus and tram) to get from hotel to conference venue, if hotels outside the immediate centre are used.

Hotel options:
The following is a list of recommended hotels close to the conference venue (between 5 and 15 min walk or with convenient public transport). Please note: hotel accommodation is quite scarce in Freiburg. You are strongly advised to book as early as possible. Rooms are being held for the conference until the date given.
