STACS '99 Arriving in Trier

By airplane - by train - by car

By Airplane

Please note that the shuttle bus line we intended to use has been reduced, as far as the days of arrival to STACS are concerned, to the point of being plainly unusable. Departure from the STACS conference, however, still can make use of this bus line.

For arrival, we're afraid that we have to refer you to the taxi stand at the airport Luxembourg. Transfer to the Ramada Hotel in Trier should cost approximately DM 100-120 per car.

For departure via shuttle bus, please note that we need to book a place for you the evening (5 p.m.) before latest. The (approximate) departure times are:

Friday:
06:15 - 07:45
Saturday:
04:45 - 06:30 - 09:00 - 10:30 - 14:30
Sunday:
03:45 - 05:10 - 09:15 - 14:45
Monday:
09:00
Tuesday and Wednesday:
05:00
(Timetable repeats weekly)
Your departure time should be at least 75 minutes (1h15) before take-off for line flights, and 105 minutes (1h45) for charter flights.


By Train

Arriving at Trier Hbf (Trier central station / Trèves gare centrale) with a valid railway ticket entitles you to one free trip with the bus. In order to go to the conference hotel, use:
Between 4:45 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. (normal bus lines):
Line 3, direction WEISMARK or FEYEN, leaving from "bus stop no. 7" (typically goes every 8 minutes)
Between 6:45 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. (evening / weekend bus lines):
Line 82, direction MARIAHOF, or
line 83, direction WEISMARK or FEYEN,
both leaving (with the exact bus stop being unspecified; buses line up on the middle lane in the order they arrive) every 10-30 minutes depending on the exact time.
(Quick orientation: When looking from the railway station, the bus should go from right to left.)

Present your railway ticket to the bus driver, and leave the bus about eight minutes later at the bus stops RATHAUS or SÜDALLEE (sometimes called SÜDALLEE/KAISERSTRASSE; all buses stop at both bus stops).

From bus stop Rathaus (slightly farther away, but the street to cross is less busy), cross the street, turn to the right, turn left at the traffic lights, and after approx. 100 more meters, the Ramada Hotel is at your left.

From bus stop Südallee, you should be able to see the Ramada Hotel on the other side of the street.


By Car

We recommend that you follow the signs leading to the Europahalle, which is back-to-back with the Ramada Hotel. To our best knowledge, all such signs will lead you to the crossing of the Hindenburgstraße and the Südallee/Kaiserstraße before pointing inside Trier's "belt of boulevards"; please see the map on the conference hotel page for where to go from there.
