Getting to the Universität Hamburg

By Train

If you are travelling from outside of Hamburg, please alight the train at Hamburg-Dammtor station (not the main station “Hauptbahnhof”). If your train only goes to Hamburg main station (Hauptbahnhof), please take the S-Bahn line 1 (S11, S21, S31) from the underground platform (direction Blankenese, Elbgaustraße or Altona) to Dammtor station. It is just one stop.

From there, you take a  5 minute walk  to the main building of the Universität Hamburg (conference location). The main building is located close to the station Hamburg-Dammtor.
