Information travelling by train

If you travel by train, we advise you to buy a ticket directly to "Stuttgart Universität". Then you do not need to buy an extra ticket for the S-Bahn. If you take the S-Bahn, please don’t forget to buy either a single ticket or a so-called "Mehrfahrtenkarte" (four trips). The "Mehrfahrtenkarte" has to be stamped before getting on the train!

For both -  the trip from the Main Station to the University campus in Vaihingen and the trip from the Airport to the University campus in Vaihingen - you need to buy a ticket for 2 zones.

 From the Main Station

  • At the main station please follow the "S-Bahn" signs (white "S" on green background) and take one of the S-Bahn lines S1, S2, or S3 in the directions "Flughafen", "Filderstadt", "Vaihingen", "Böblingen", or "Herrenberg".
  • After about 10 minutes you will reach the stop "Universität" (fourth stop). If you exit the station at the rear of the train (exit "Universitätszentrum", not "Schranne") you will directly arrive in the centre of the University campus.
  • The mathematical institutes are located in the building "Pfaffenwaldring 57".

From the Airport

  • At the Airport please follow the "S-Bahn" signs (white "S" on green background) and take one of the S-Bahn lines S2, or S3 in the directions "Schorndorf"or "Backnang".
  • After about 17 minutes you will reach the stop "Universität" (eighth stop). If exiting the station at the front of the train (exit "Universitätszentrum", not "Schranne"), you will arrive at the centre of the University campus.
  • The mathematical institutes are located in the building "Pfaffenwaldring 57".

 

Arrival by Car

    Bundesstraße B 14.

  • Now you reach a large crossing where you have to turn left to follow the Universitätsstraße.
