How to get around

Walking

You can for sure walk everywhere. It is fairly easy since we have no mountains in the city center and everything is close by. Moreover, the center is formed by a big pedestrian area.

Cycling

As mentioned before there are no mountains in the city of Braunschweig, which makes cycling a task to be done easily. The streets in the city always provide space for cyclists – often on an own infrastructure, which makes it safe.

Bus

The Braunschweiger Verkehrs-GmbH is responsible for the public transport in Braunschweig. Braunschweig is one of the few cities, which use trams with a gauge of only 1100 mm. 5 tram routes and 36 bus routes serve Braunschweig. A ticket for whole city during the 3-day-conference will cost about 15 €.
