Travel Information

By Plane

When you arrive at Airport Stuttgart, the easiest way to get to the university, is to take the suburban railway (German: S-Bahn). The following suburban railway lines will take you to the university:
  • S2: Direction Schorndorf
  • S3: Direction Backnang
You have to leave the train at the station "Universität".

By Train

From Stuttgart main railway station (German: Hauptbahnhof) you should take one of the following suburban trains (German: S-Bahn) which travel every 10 minutes. It takes you about 10 minutes to get from the main station (German: Hauptbahnhof) to the university:

  • S1: Direction Böblingen / Herrenberg
  • S2: Direction Vaihingen / Filderstadt
  • S3: Direction Vaihingen / Flughafen

You can easily reach the underground platform for the suburban trains using the stairs directly from the platforms of the main station.

If you don't have a train ticket all the way through to Stuttgart university yet you have to get a Ticket to university from one of the ticket machines. You have to pay for 2 zones. You will find the ticket machines close to the entry of the suburban railway station. Unfortunately you won't find it on the platform of the suburban trains. Some trains in the direction to university will only take you to Schwabstraße. If you happen to take one of those trains, don't worry. Just get of the train at the last stop Schwabstraße and wait for the next train in the direction university (Universität).

A system map of the suburban railway can be found at the Verkehrsverbund Stuttgart (VVS).
