Traveling to Bremen

Bremen is located in northwestern Germany, about 60 km from the North Sea. Many major airlines operate out of the Bremen Airport.

Going to the DLR premises in Bremen by car:

On the highway (Autobahn) A 27, take exit number 19 Bremen-Horn / Lehe, direction to the university. When leaving the highway, turn right at the traffic light and continue on the "Hochschulring". Make a right turn at the street "Am Fallturm" and exit it after circa 150 meters to the right on to the "Robert-Hooke-Straße".

Going by train or plane:

Take the tram or street car line 6 in the direction to the university, which takes from the airport about 30 minutes, and from the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) 15 minutes. The tram (street car or Straßenbahn) goes frequently, every five to ten minutes. Leave the tram at the terminal station "Klagenfurter Straße", go in the direction of the drop tower (Fallturm), and behind it take the street "Am Fallturm" and turn left, and then after circa 150 meters you turn right into the "Robert-Hooke-Straße". The DLR building is located on the left side. It takes about 5 minutes walking from the tram station to reach DLR.


The COSPAR meeting website has a listing of special hotel room rates at: Go to "conference information" and then "registration & accommodation" and then "accommodation info."
