Location of the 2nd Joint DAISY/FACETS Workshop[]

The workshop will take place at the IWH, Hauptstraße 242, D-69117 Heidelberg, phone +49 6221- 54 36 90 (link)

Public transport: please consult the online time table of the VRN (the public transport provider in Heidelberg). If you arrive at the Heidelberg Main Station please use Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof as start address (Form pre-filled with IWH (Hauptstrasse 242) as destination).

Long distance transport information:

  • the nearest regional train station is Heidelberg Altstadt (renamed on 14 December 08 from Heidelberg Karlstor), serviced by S-Bahn trains. From that station the IWH is in about 5 minutes walking distance (Heidelberg Altstadt to IWH walkway description).
  • From Heidelberg main station ("Heidelberg Hbf") a taxi takes about 10 minutes to the IWH. Public transport information \rightarrow see above
  • From Frankfurt Main international airport (FRA):
    • Train: The airport has a long distance train station with direct ICE trains to Mannheim. From Mannheim Heidelberg is reachable via S-Bahn. Online train information is available at Use Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf as From:-field content and Heidelberg Altstadt (=next to IWH, see above) or Heidelberg Hbf (=Heidelberg main station) as To:. (Or change the type for the To: field to Address and use Heidelberg - Altstadt, Hauptstraße 242 to get also a local street map for the final few walking steps.)
    • Shuttle service: We often use the TLS shuttle service. They wait for delayed flights and bring passengers directly to their hotel. Disadvantage: They pool up to 8 people, i.e. there can be delay at the airport if they have to wait for a delayed flight of somebody else foreseen for your shuttle minibus and they deliver also the other passengers to their hotels, i.e. the total journey time may also include some driving around in Heidelberg before your destination is reached.
