You could also travel to Frankfurt Hahn (HHN) airport. In this case, please note that longer commute (about 1 hour). Public transport to Mainz is only provided a few times a day.

Other airports within reach (less than 3 hours by train) include Cologne (CGN) and Düsseldorf (DUS).

 

Trains

There are several different categories of trains in Germany. Regional trains (S, RE, RB, VIA), express trains (IC, EC) and high speed trains (ICE). Please note that they all have different price categories. All tickets can be booked via the Deutsche Bahn (online booking is possible and recommended).

 

Caused by ongoing construction works at the main station it might not be possible to take any bus/ tram lines from Mainz main station. Therefore, you have to take bus or tram lines from the “Hauptbahnhof West/ Taubertsbergbad” station (not “Hauptbahnhof”).

These busses/ trams take you to the conference venue:
