Hotel Information and Locations

Please let us know in your registration form if you want us to arrange accomodation for you. We can offer rooms in these three hotels, two located in the Schwabing district — home to LMU’s main campus and one of the city’s most lively places to go out at night - the other one situated right next to the English Garden - one of the biggest inner city parks worldwide:

How to find us and getting around

If you arrive by air at Munich Airport, the easiest way into the city is by the S-Bahn, the regional railway system. By taking the S1 or S8 from below Terminal 1, you will reach the city center (Hauptbahnhof) in approximately 45 minutes. Tickets must be purchased at the ticket machines (ground floor near the escalators to the S-Bahn station). If you travel alone, you might want to buy an adult single day ticket (all zones) - if you are a group of two or more (up to five), you should buy an adult partner ticket (all zones). Tickets must be validated (stamped) before entering the trains.

If you get to Munich by train, you can choose to buy either a single ride ticket, a day ticket, or a partner day ticket (for groups up to five) - or even three-day versions of these. Munich main station and LMU are located in the inner district, so "Innenraum" tickets are sufficient for getting from the train to the conference venue.

The conference location is situated at the LMU Campus Oettingenstraße 67, at the east side of the English Garden, at the bus stop Hirschauer Straße (Bus line 54 and 154) or the bus and tram stop Tivolistraße (Bus line 154 and tram line 18).
