Description of how to find us

The location of Aachen is very central and thus easily reachable also for intercontinental travelers. Aachen can be comfortably accessed by air, train, bus or car.

Düsseldorf International Airport serves as our "home airport". There is a very regular and fast direct train connection from the airport to Aachen, although one might also choose to take a rental car and drive in about 45 minutes to Aachen.

Other suitable airports with easy connections are Cologne Airport (ca. 50 minutes with the car to Aachen) and Brussels International Airport (Train connection from Brussels City to Aachen takes ca. 1 h 15 min). At slightly longer distance, but also offering excellent connections is the Frankfurt am Main International Airport (high-speed train leaves directly from the airport). Maastricht Airport (20 minutes away) may also offer connections, especially for participants arriving from Southern Europe.

Both Düsseldorf and Cologne metropolitan areas are within 65 km (40 min) distance from Aachen, Maastricht in the Netherlands is just 30 km (20 min) away, and Brussels is 125 km (77 min) away. The train connections in Europe are very fast, and provide also post-conference travel opportunities. The travel time to Paris with a high-speed train is 2 h 30 min and to Brussels 1 h 15 min.
