2006 Conference: Travel and Lodging

Travel to Kiel

The Hamburg Airport is the closest major airport to Kiel. There are flights into Kiel from Hamburg, Munich, and Berlin, but they are infrequent and taking the Kielius shuttle bus to Kiel is faster (1.5 hours). The shuttle bus costs about 27 EUR each way and leaves the Hamburg Airport (the bus stop “Autokraft, Neumunster-Kiel” or “Kielius” is between Terminals 1 and 2 in Area C) every other hour going straight to downtown Kiel (central omnibus station ZOB). Download the the bus schedule PDF or see www.kielius.de.

From the central station in Kiel you can easily walk to the hotel (5 minutes).

The Steigenberger Conti Hansa Hotel
