How to reach Kiel

By plane

The nearest airport is Hamburg Airport. To travel from the airport to Kiel we recommend the shuttle service called „Kielius“, which brings you to Kiel main train station (Hauptbahnhof). We recommend buying a „Kielius-Kombi-Karte“, which includes a taxi service from the train station to your final destination (http://www.bahn.de/autokraft/view/angebot/kielius/en-kielius-ueb.shtml). You may also take shuttle taxi service called “KIELEXX” which has to be booked at least 50 min prior to the departure (+49 (0) 431 77080). The “KIELEXX” will take you directly to your destination in Kiel (approx. 31€ one way).


By Train

By train, Hamburg is well connected to other large European cities. From Hamburg there are trains every 20-30 minutes to Kiel central station.


The meeting will take place close to the city center of Kiel (see below) with several hotels in the neighborhood such as:

 Steigenberger Hotel (ca 120€ per night incl. breakfast)


Maritim Hotel Bellevue Kiel (ca 100€ per night incl. breakfast),
