Travel Information

The University of Münster is located in Münster, Germany. (An alternative spelling of Münster is Muenster - note that this is different from Munster, Germany!)

By plane:

The airport Münster-Osnabrück (FMO) is located 30 km from Münster. A bus service to Münster central station is available (45 min). The airport Düsseldorf (DUS) is further away, but offers far more international connections. The train ride to Münster central station is 90 minutes. Details about connecting busses and trains are available via bahn.de.

Public transport:

Münster is well connected by train. For details see bahn.de. Starting at central station, several bus lines lead to the department. Best choices are probably bus routes 5, 11, 12, 22 direction Gievenbeck or Nienberge. Get off at bus stop Coesfelder Kreuz after about 15 minutes. To get to the department, go right and cross the street with traffic lights. There is a flat building right after the corner which is connected to a 9-story-building, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Behind these buildings, there are two modern buildings with an aluminium-colored corrugated sheet facade. The workshop takes place in the modern building on the left.

By car:

Use your favourite routing service. There are parking lots next to the buildings at Orleansring 10-12, 48149 Münster, Germany. The buildings are new, and so is their address. Google Maps has them correctly listed.


The workshop is supported by the Cluster of Excellence "Mathematics Münster: Dynamics - Geometry - Structure".
