Travel directions

  1. From Airport to Hotel Panorama (Google Maps)
    1. From Hamburg Airport take the train S1 to Hamburg Central Station (Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in German).
    2. From here, take the S-Bahn line S3 or S31 in the direction Harburg Rathaus, Neugraben, Buxtehude, or Stade from platform 3 or 4. Get off the train at the station Harburg Rathaus (17 minutes, one stop after Harburg).
    3. Leave the platform at the end of the train and take the exit towards Karstadt. If you see a big shopping place called Karstadt in front of you, you are at the correct place. You are now at the Harburger Ring. Hotel Panorama is now a 100m walk, with the shops on your left and the main street on your right.
  2. From Hamburg Central Station to Hotel Panorama (Google Maps)
    1. From Hamburg Central Station: follow instructions 1.2 and 1.3 above.
    2. From Hamburg-Harburg: When coming from the south or west of Germany, many ICE- or IC-trains do stop at "Hamburg-Harburg" before going into "Hamburg Hbf". If this is the case for your train, do get off at Hamburg-Harburg already as it saves you at least 30 minutes. From the station, it is less than 10 minutes to walk (or a taxi ride of less than 5 minutes).
  3. From Hamburg Central Station to the TU Hamburg (Google Maps)
    1. From Hamburg Central Station, follow the instructions as given in 1.2 to get to Harburg Rathaus.
    2. Leave the platform in the direction in that the train was going, go up the stairs and take the first exit to the right (it is called "Neue Strasse"). When you have surfaced then look around, you should see a bus stop very close. (If you have taken the correct exit, you will not need to cross the road.) From there, take Bus 142 in the direction of "Hans-Dewitz-Ring/ AKHarburg". Your S-Bahn ticket is also valid for the bus. Leave the bus already at the first stop (called "Kasernenstrasse / TU Hamburg").
    3. Look around to see a big red brick building on the other side of the road, which is "Building A" of TU Hamburg. Pass by this building (leaving it on your left hand side), and go down some slope towards a long purple brick building on your right hand side, labelled as "Building E". The conference location, "Building H" is directly opposite to this.
    4. From Hamburg-Harburg: When coming from the south or west of Germany, many ICE- or IC-trains do stop at "Hamburg-Harburg" before going into "Hamburg Hbf". If this is the case for your train, do get off at Hamburg-Harburg already as it saves you at least 30 minutes. Get out of the train station, find the bus stop, take Bus 142 as described in 3.2 until you reach "Kasernenstrasse / TU Hamburg".
  4. From Hotel Panorama to the TU Hamburg (Google Maps)
    • The simplest idea would be to walk to the university. It should take less than 20 minutes.
    • Else, when you exit the hotel, do not cross the street and walk down the Harburger Ring (in opposite direction of the construction work). Keep walking till you reach a place with lots of bus stops in a row. Walk till the last bus stop, take Bus 142 in the direction of "Hans-Dewitz-Ring/ AK Harburg". Now follow the directions as in 3.2 and 3.3
