This year tUM is taking place in Hemsbach. Hemsbach is a little town in the north-west
of Baden-Württemberg of Germany. Maybe you want to visit the official site
of Hemsbach to inform a little
bit more about the town.
As Hemsbach is situated near Frankfurt the best choice is Frankfurt Airport, which
is the biggest one here in Germany. For more informations about Frankfurt Airport
and for flights to or from Frankfurt, check the official homepage http://www.flughafen-frankfurt.de.
I'll now describe how to get from this airport to the party place.
from Frankfurt Airport:
This is not very complicated. Frankfurt Airport has two railway stations. The
local railway station for S-Bahn and the long-distance railway station, which
is at the "AIRail" Terminal, right beside Terminal 1. Trains arrive at and depart
from platforms 4 to 7. At the long-distance railway station, there's a train going
to Darmstadt Hbf, there you must change trains to direction Heidelberg or Mannheim
(both via Hemsbach). It costs about 20 Euro. You might want to check out exact
time schedules at the Deutsche Bahn TravelService: Enter "From" = "Frankfurt(M)
Flughafen Fernbf" and "To" = "Hemsbach Bahnhof". http://www.bahn.de
from Hahn Airport:
There is also a cool&cheap alternative for some countries: the airport
It is used by the low-price airline ryanair.
"Frankfurt/Hahn" in fact is 150km away from "Frankfurt am Main", which
means about 200kms away from Hemsbach. For example, a trip
London -> Frankfurt/Hahn is just 20€ (depending on when you are
booking). Travelling from Hahn to Hemsbach is not very complicated: the
best way is to take the shuttle bus to Mainz. From
there grab a train with direction to Hemsbach. You might want to check
out exact time schedules at the Deutsche Bahn TravelService: Enter "From
= Mainz Hbf" and "To = Hemsbach Bahnhof".
when coming by train, you have to use some major train to Hemsbach. The
Deutsche Bahn offers rabates of 50%-70% for people travelling as "group"
(a group must consist of a minimum of 6 people) and early booking. Just
check out the official site of the "Deutsche Bahn (DB)".
if you want to organize a bustrip to our party and you are still searching for
ppl to fill your bus, please contact
...and once you`re in Hemsbach
You can make use of the free shuttle service. But you must (!) contact
us in advance, so that we can pick you up (please include number of people and
expected time or arrival). If you`re coming without equipment, you can also take
a walk. Just take a look at the map
to see that the railway station is not really far away from the partyplace.

...that some organizers had a shopping cart crashing contest after tUM*03?
