How to Reach the Conference Site

Location of the hotel

The Dom Hotel Limburg is located in the heart of the historic town of Limburg that dates back to its earliest reference in 910 AC. Limburg is almost on the half way between Cologne (100 km) and Frankfurt (70 km) and can be easily reached by car, train and plane.

 

By plane

Limburg is located ca. 70 km north of Frankfurt airport which can be reached by almost all airlines from Europe and Overseas. Other airports close to Limburg are Cologne (100 km) and Dusseldorf (160 km).

From these airports, it is possible to travel by train to Limburg.

 

By car

Limburg is located at one of the main north-south motorways, i.e. A3. Either whether you are coming from the north or from the south, leave A3 at exit "Limburg Süd" and turn into direction "Limburg". Follow the street down into the city. After you have passed the petrol station on the right ('ARAL') turn right into the next street (direction 'Eschhofen') and, again, at the trafflic lights turn right into Eisenbahnstraße. Follow this street which crosses under the railway bridge and makes a left-hander. Turn right at the traffic lights into Frankfurter Straße which soon becomes the Grabenstraße. After about 70 m the hotel is on the right side. The entrance is round the corner (Bahnhofstraße).

If you come from the east, e.g. Gießen, Kassel, Hannover, or Berlin, leave the A5 at the motorway junction 8 'Reiskirchener Dreieck', change to A480 and follow the signs to Limburg. You will be guided via B429 to B49 (later becomes B54) which brings you directly to Limburg.

In order to avoid navigating through the city and get lost in the many one-way streets, it is recommended  to change to the motorway A3 into the direction Frankfurt before entering the city. Leave the A3 at the exit "Limburg Süd" and follow the instructions above.

 

By train

Limburg has two train stations; "Limburg (Lahn)" for regional trains and "Limburg-Süd" for high-speed trains.

High-speed trains connect the airports Cologne and Frankfurt with Limburg.

If appropriate it is recommended to take the high-speed trains. From Frankfurt the train takes about 20 min. You start from "Frankfurt am Main Flughafen Fernbahnhof" (for long distance trains), leave the train at "Limburg-Süd" and take a taxi to the Dom Hotel. From the airport "Köln/Bonn Flughafen", the train takes about 1 hr. Leave the train at "Limburg-Süd" and take a taxi to the Dom Hotel.

Alternatively, you can take the regional train to Limburg. Take a regional train at the Frankfurt airport "Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Regionalbahnhof" to Frankfurt central station and change to the regional trains (RB22 or RE20) to "Limburg (Lahn)". This train takes about 1 hr from Frankfurt central station to Limburg. From "Limburg (Lahn)" station it is a 10 min walk to the Dom Hotel.

Exit the station, cross the bus terminal and enter into "Bahnhofstraße". Follow this street (which crosses a market place) and cross Grabenstraße. Then the hotel will be on the right hand side.
