How to get to Konstanz
The nearest airports are Zuerich (which is across the border in
non-EU Switzerland, but the most convenient option), Friedrichshafen (across
the lake, is used for national flights), and Stuttgart (rather distant).
From Zuerich airport get on a train towards Romanshorn (not into Zurich
but in the opposite direction!) and (after about 40 mins) change at Weinfelden
(unless you're lucky and get a direct train to Konstanz). From Friedrichshafen
it's more difficult: train to Friedrichshafen train station, bus
to Meersburg ferry, ferry to Konstanz Staad, bus to Konstanz downtown.
From Stuttgart, take a train to Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof (or, if areally
experienced, Boeblingen), from there continue to Singen, where you change
By train, you may want to head for Zuerich when you come from the
south, from where it will take you about an hour and a half to get here.
Otherwise head for Stuttgart or Offenburg (the latter on the main north-south
line from Frankfurt to Freiburg/Basel), and enjoy another two to three
hours on slow trains across the Schwaebische Alb or the Black Forest respectively.
By car, from the south Zuerich is again the place to head for, from
where a motorway leads you straight to Kreuzlingen&Konstanz. From the
north, the Stuttgart to Singen motorway (A81) is the best, and from Singen
continue on another motorway (sort of) to Konstanz (B33).
By boat, Lindau in Bavaria or Bregenz in Austria are recommended
ports for embarkation, should you be thereabouts. The passage to Konstanz
will take some six hours, though.
Once in Konstanz, the place is too small to get lost. The railway
station (note: Hauptbahnhof! Don't get off earlier!) is in the middle of
the old town, where all hotels are, indeed usually within walking distance.
Alas, the university is outside town: a bus ride (Nos.
9A, 9B, 4) from outside Hauptbahnhof will take you there within about a
quarter of an hour. There are fewer buses on Saturdays and especially Sundays,
though. Sharing a taxi may be faster and not much more expensive
(ca. DM 17 from Hauptbahnhof).
!We created a personal
bus timetable for you!
Within the university find the Linguistics Dept in Sector G of the
building that you enter right where you get off the bus, and head for its
Room (G 117/119, Sector G, ground floor), where you'll be taken care
On Thursday evening we'll organise a get-together for those so inclined
and indeed around. Place and time to be announced in the next and
If you have not booked accommodation yet, or have not had it booked,
do so quick, for this seems to be a busy weekend, touristically or academically.
