Venue / Travel Information

Hotel Albrechtshof, Albrechtstraße 8, 10117 Berlin, Germany

Getting to the venue

By Train

The local and regional train station "Friedrichstr" is very close to the event venue. A variety of trains, S-Bahn as well as U-Bahn (underground) are interconnecting at Friedrichstr.

Please note you must use the exit "Schiffbauerdamm", which you can reach exclusively from the western end of the top-most rail tracks of S3/S5/S7/S9, as it is the only exit that gets you to the northern shore of the river Spree. All other exits of the station will not get you where you need to be!.

By Plane

The TXL bus takes you directly from the Berlin TXL airport to the central station (Berlin Hauptbahnhof), where you can change into any east-bound S-Bahn train such as S3, S5, S7, S9 and exit two stops later at S Friedrichstrasse, which is within walking distance of the venue.

Coming from SXF airport, probably best take the S9 which brings you all the way to S Friedrichstrasse, which is within walking distance of the venue.
