Frankfurt Airport is Germany’s largest airport located in the south-west of the main city center (13 km away). It is one of the busiest in all of Europe, servicing some 300 destinations in over 100 countries, including more than 130 intercontinental connections.

Public Transport

The airport has excellent public transport connections. You can reach Frankfurt main train station via tram (line S8 or S9) in around 11 minutes which is a central transfer point in all directions. If you want to go to city center or to Goethe Universität Campus Westend switch trains at Hauptwache (16 minutes from airport; 2 stops after main train station).

The tram is departing every 10 to 15 minutes (direction Offenbach Ost, Hanau) from the regional train station close to Airport City Mall in Terminal One. Please make sure that you do not accidentally wait for the train at the long-distance train stop also in Terminal One.

For more information and public transport timetables visit:


There are taxis available just outside each of the terminals. The trip to the city center will cost approx. 40€ and takes around 15-20 minutes (heavily depending on traffic).

If you want to go via taxi to the conference location tell the taxi driver Theodor-W.-Adorno-Platz 1 as destination.

As the parking space at the Campus is very limited, we strongly recommend using public transport to get there. You can find route networks and timetables from Rhein Main Verkehrsbetriebe: or the RMV app

From the underground station Holzhausenstraße it is a 10 minute walk to the event building. Alternatively you can take a taxi. 

Detailed information on how to get there will be published here
