Getting to Tübingen

Travel by Air

Stuttgart Echterdingen is the closest airport. From there, the easiest way into Tübingen is the 828 Sprinter bus, which runs hourly and takes approx. 48 minutes to about an hour. For bus schedules, go to At the bottom left of the page under Mini-Fahrpläne, type in 828 and choose the first option.

Alternatively, take the S-Bahn (suburban train) to Herrenberg, and then a regional train from Herrenberg to Tübingen.

If coming from Frankfurt, it takes about 2 to 2.5 hours with at least a change in Stuttgart and sometimes in Mannheim as well. See and click on the ‘international’ tab for English pages.

Travel by Train

The train from Stuttgart takes about 45min by IRE train or around 1hr by normal train.

Travel by Car

Finding a spot to park you car can be quite difficult, especially close to the center of the city. Almost every street there may only be used by residents at night, and during the day there are parking meters. Be sure to check the signs indicating how long you are allowed to park, and if you are not sure, look for another spot. Ticket officers are very quick in Tübingen. If you need to park your car near downtown, you can use parking garages (list of garages in Tübingen), but be advised, they are not cheap.

Getting to the Workshop

The workshop venue is approximately 15 minutes by foot from the central train station and 10 from the historical city centre.  Alternatively, you can take buses 1,2 and 7  from the central station to the Brechtbau. The closest bus stop is ‘Lothar-Meyer-Bau’. For information about buses in and around Tübingen, go to
