Dieburger Straße 241
Lichtenberg-Haus der TU Darmstadt
Since its founding in 1877, the TU Darmstadt has contributed to the solution of urgent questions of the future with pioneering achievements and outstanding research and teaching. The TU Darmstadt concentrates on selected, highly relevant problem areas. Technology is the focus of all disciplines at the TU Darmstadt. The natural sciences as well as social sciences and humanities work closely together with the engineering sciences.
Built in 1898 and restored in Art Nouveau style in 1910, the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus is an example of that architectural style that has become Darmstadt’s trademark and has given the city worldwide renown. In the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus there are two rooms to be used during the conference: The large hall is bright and modern. It can accommodate around 100 guests. The small hall offers a cozy, dignified atmosphere for 50 people.
Conference venue: Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus, Dieburger Straße 241, 64287 Darmstadt
The closest airport is Frankfurt Rhein-Main international airport, located 25 km (15.5 miles) north of Darmstadt. At the airport, regional bus lines depart from arrival area B at Terminal 1 and arrival areas D+E at Terminal 2. We recommend the express bus AirLiner (Terminals 1 and 2), which offers a convenient and fast 30-minute connection from the airport to the city center, e.g. Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) or Luisenplatz.
Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) is well connected to the German distance railway network through ICE, IC and EC trains. For long-distance travel you can find more information on the Deutsche Bahn website. There are also regional connections with Frankfurt am Main, Wiesbaden, Aschaffenburg, Mannheim, and Heidelberg. For more information on regional trains please check the regional transport operator RMV.
By Public Transport in Darmstadt
From Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) or Luisenplatz Platform Nr. 1 (city center), you can take bus lines F/U (towards Darmstadt Oberwaldhaus or Rödermark-Uberach Bahnhof). Beware: The Bus stop for the line F/U is located at the back side of the train station. Get off at stop “Fasanerie”, which is directly in front of the conference venue.
The F/U bus line runs every 15 minutes, after 9 pm every 30 minutes. For information about the departure times check the operator RMV.
Moreover, you can take the “HeinerLiner”, a local ride pooling service, from wherever you are (e.g., main railway station or hotel) and at any time (not depending on a fixed schedule). In advance, the application needs to be downloaded. For further information check the HeinerLiner website or app.
You will most likely approach Darmstadt from highways A5 (from Frankfurt/Main) or A67 (from Köln/Wiesbaden) and then follow the “Rheinstrasse” in direction of signs to “TU Stadtmitte Mitte”.
Drive straight into the Cityring tunnel. After turning right in the tunnel, at the end of the tunnel, turn left into Hügelstrasse.
Afterwards, turn left at the next large traffic light into the Kirchstraße. At the next major intersection straight ahead, the Darmstädter Schloss is then left. At the next traffic light, turn right into Alexanderstraße, which later becomes Dieburger Straße. The Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus is located in Dieburger Straße, on the right side in direction of travel right, house number 241.
Darmstadt offers several well-kept hotels in a central location with a good connection to the conference venue by public transport.
