Resilient Networks and Services

1st-3rd July 2008, Jacobs University Bremen, Germany

Location of Jacobs University

Jacobs University is located in the Northern part of Bremen, about 20km from the city center. Trains connect this part of Bremen with the centre and run every 30 minutes. The train station closest campus is called "Bremen Schoenebeck". To use the public transportation (including bus, tram and train), you can purchase a combined ticket at the beginning of your ride (price category II is needed if you go all the way from/to downtown).

Traveling by train

The city of Bremen is well connected to the German and European train system. Trains from Bremen's main station to North Bremen (and vice versa) leave every 30 minutes; duration of the ride to our destination is about 20 minutes. Take the train in the direction of Vegesack and get off at Schoenebeck station. From this station, you can do a short walk following the signs to the campus.

Traveling by plane

There are direct flights to Airport Bremen from several European cities, including major hubs such as Frankfurt, Paris, or Amsterdam. Within Europe, Ryanair offers good connectivity to Bremen at very affordable prices. Upon your arrival in Bremen, take the streetcar (tram) number 6 (leaves in front of the airport building) and get off at Bremen main station (Hauptbahnhof). From there one takes the train to Bremen-Vegesack as described above. Do not stay in the tram number 6 even though it says destination "University" since the tram will bring you to a different university.

As an alternative, you can simply take a taxi from the airport. This is much simpler and faster (although travel time depends on how busy the streets are). However, the taxi trip from the airport to Jacobs University costs around 40 Euros. (Make sure you tell the taxi driver that you want to Jacobs University since we have more than one university in town.)

Traveling by car

The campus is easily reached from highway A27. Take the exit 16 and get onto B74/A270 heading toward Bremen Vegesack. Take the exit marked "St. Magnus" and follow the signs to Jacobs University.
