How to get to Bielefeld?
Welcome to Germany! One of the most well-connected countries in the world. The whole country has a vast train system that can get you anywhere. Thus, once you enter Germany, you can easily access Bielefeld from many different cities. Depending on where you come from, perhaps the best option is to take one direct flight to Germany and then a train to get to Bielefeld. You can easily book a train using the application from the German Railway “DB Navigator App” or tehir webpage via www.bahn.com/en – it works for trains in Germany and also in some neighbouring countries. Here you find more useful information on how to use public transport in Germany.

How to get to University?
Public transport within the city is well developed. However, the best way to get to the University is to take the Tram line 4 (red line; direction Lohmannshof if you depart from the city centre), which stops directly at Bielefeld University campus (stop “Universität”).
Alternatively, Bielefeld has a dense grid of bus stops. There are several busses that go from several parts of the city to Bielefeld University. Just find the busstop closest to you and type it in the DB Navigator App or mobiel app (the app for public transport within Bielefeld) and it will give you the best route and departure times.
