Campus, University of Erfurt, Erfurt, Thuringia, Germany. Erfurt University, the “alma mater erfordiensis” founded in 1392 and closed in 1816 was re-founded on 29th April,1994. Erfurt is the capital of Thuringia, a federal state lying at the very centre of Germany. Erfurt, as a capital city, forms the centre of administration and media in Thuringia. The opening of the Messe Erfurt AG in June 1997 turned Erfurt into a highly competitive trade fair location for the region. The Erfurt-Weimar Airport (Flughafen Erfurt-Weimar) connects the State of Thuringia with the rest of the international air traffic network. Erfurt central train station has recently been transformed into an ICE-train station making getting to/from Erfurt most convenient.
How to get here:
The conference will take place on the campus of the University of Erfurt (Nordhäuser Straße 63, 99089 Erfurt).
To get to the university from the train station, take lines 3 (direction Europaplatz) and 6 (direction Rieth). The main entrance of the university is directly opposite the stop “Universität” (departure every six minutes during the day).
Tickets can be purchased at the ticket machines at the train station or in the tram (have sall coins ready).
The live timetable information as well as information on current timetables and the Erfurt route network can be found on the Erfurter Verkehrsbetriebe (https://www.evag-erfurt-netzplan.de/index.php/de/karte) and Deutsche Bahn websites.
