By air:

from Cologne/Bonn airport (Flughafen Koeln/Bonn):

  • Airport-shuttle-bus No 670 towards Bonn Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) ·    Underground (U-Bahn) line 16, 63 or 66 towards Bad Godesberg/Koenigswinter
  • Heussallee stop, exit "Deutsche Welle"
  • When you reach the street go straight ahead until you reach Hermann-Ehlers-Str. and the UN Campus

Please check the following webpage on more information about Bonn/Cologne Airport and how to get there: http://www.koeln-bonn-airport.de/index.php

The airport is well connected to the city centre by Airport-shuttle-bus No SB60 leaving from Terminal 2 every twenty minutes (a single ticket is 6.70 €). It is also possible to rent a car or take a taxi, of course. The distance between airport and main train station is around 30 km.

Arriving at the Airport Frankfurt (Rhein-Main):
Distance to the center of Bonn: about 170 km
For those arriving in Frankfurt airport, we recommend to go to the "long distance train station (Fernbahnhof)" of the airport:
Either you take
- any of the IC trains going to Mainz, Koblenz and Bonn (central station)
and continuing to Cologne etc. or you take
- the fast "ICE" train to "Siegburg/Bonn", and take the tram to Bonn from there. There is only one tram line (No. 66) departing in Siegburg/Bonn station; get off at "Universität/Markt".

The IC train will take you in 1 hour and 45 minutes to Bonn. The ICE train will need on a maximum speed of 250 km/h about 39 minutes to reach Siegburg. The remaining 15 km will take you at least as much (including waiting and change over time).
