How to get to Freiburg


For applicants requiring visas to come to Germany, information can be found on the official website of the Federal Foreign Office:

Arrival by plane

There are three airports close by: EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, Zurich (Switzerland) and Frankfurt am Main.

Cheap flights can be booked, for example, here: http://www.momondo.com/

Arrival by train
Since Freiburg lies within the network of the European railway system and along the highly frequented ICE (Intercity Express) line between Frankfurt am Main, Basel and Zurich (Switzerland), it is readily accessible by rail from all directions – 40 minutes from Basel; 2,5 hours from Frankfurt am Main, 2 hours from Zurich.
For train connections, please check: www.bahn.de. Look for connections with French railways (SNCF) via Strasbourg and Swiss railways (SBB/CFF) via Basel.
Please make sure you have booked your ticket to "Freiburg im Breisgau - Germany" since there is another (very small) Freiburg in the north of Germany and one in Switzerland.

Arrival by car
Travel on the "Autobahn A5" coming from Karlsruhe or Basel. Exit at the junction "Freiburg Mitte". From there it is about 10 minutes to the workshop location.


Board and lodging will be covered by the Late-Summer School. Doctoral students will be staying in double rooms at Hotel Schiller, a beautiful landmarked building just 2 minutes from the old town and the city center. The workshop venue is a nice 10-minutes’ walk from there. Presenters and senior scholars will lodge in single rooms at Hotel Kaiser, Günterstalstraße 38, around the corner from the Liefmannhaus.

The university catering service will take care of lunch and dinner, coffee and fruit will be at hand for our coffee breaks. Please let us know in advance of any specific dietary requirements.

Our workshop venue
The workshop venue Liefmannhaus is conveniently located at Goethestraße 33 in the heart of the popular neighborhood Wiehre and in walking distance from downtown Freiburg.


All meals and accommodation will be covered, as will reimbursement for the following travel expenses: up to 150 Euro for participants from Germany; up to 300 Euro for those from other European countries; and up to 800 Euro for students who come from overseas.

Unfortunately, we cannot cover additional nights, so if you plan on coming on October 8th or leaving on October 19th, you will have to pay for yourself.

We will need your train or flight tickets for reimbursement. Please make sure you send them in together with the signed form P 875 which you will receive at the workshop, as soon as you get back home. We will need the original tickets in order to authorize payment to your account. University Accounting does not accept photocopies. (In case your institution is able to cover the travel costs, we would highly appreciate this.)
