If you arrive at Frankfurt Airport (FRA), we recommend you to use the high-speed-train (Intercity-Express, ICE) to get to the Conference venues. As you can see in the picture above, you will only need 1 hr 20 min maximum to reach the Conference Hotel and the train goes every 30 min. This includes a change at the station Siegburg/Bonn from ICE to the light rail 66 which you can find in the underground of the station.
To get relaxed to the conference, please notice the following advice:
- Find the right train station at Frankfurt Airport. As there are two different stations it is very important to find yourself at the station for long distance trains ("Frankfurt am Main Flughafen Fernbahnhof"). Please check this overview to verify that you are at the right station. Little hint: If the trains are white-coloured you are probably right, if they are red you are probably wrong.
- Buy your ticket right there at the airport station. When you have mobile data, you can buy your ticket directly via the smartphone app "DB Navigator". Alternatively, you can buy your ticket at the red-white ticket machines on the platforms with the "DB" logo. You can either pay with cash or card. In the process of buying the ticket, we highly recommend you to enter your certain station of departure and arrival (departure: Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf / arrival: Bonn Bertha-von-Suttner-Pl./Beethovenhaus). Only this way you get automatically a combined ticket for Intercity-Express and light rail so you do not need an extra ticket when you change trains. It will cost you about EUR 50.00 to EUR 70.00. You will not be able to buy a ticket when you already entered the train.
