How to get to Darmstadt

Darmstadt is located in southwest Germany in the federal state of Hesse and is part of the Rhein-Main metropolitan area. Frankfurt am Main is less than 20 miles away, and cities such as Mainz, Wiesbaden, Heidelberg and Mannheim are also nearby. Darmstadt and TU Darmstadt are well connected and easily accessible by car, train, or air.

By train

ICE, IC and EC trains stop at Darmstadt Station, which means it is very well connected with the German distance railway network. There are regional connections with Frankfurt am Main, Wiesbaden, Aschaffenburg, Mannheim and Heidelberg as well as Erbach and Eberbach.

Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main station) is a hub for tram and bus lines to the following TU locations:

Campus Lichtwiese has its own bus stop as well as an Odenwaldbahn (VIAS) train station, which connects to Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof (main station) via Darmstadt Nordbahnhof and Darmstadt Ostbahnhof.

By car

You can reach Darmstadt from motorways A5 (from Frankfurt/M. – Heidelberg/Basel) and A67 (from Cologne/Wiesbaden – Mannheim). At the motorway junction ‘Autobahnkreuz Darmstadt’ take the exit towards Darmstadt/Stadtmitte.

The international airport Frankfurt Rhein-Main is located 25 km (15.5 miles) from Darmstadt. At the airport, regional bus lines depart from arrivals area B at Terminal 1 and arrivals areas D+E at Terminal 2. We recommend the express bus AirLiner (Terminals 1 and 2), which offers a convenient and fast 30-minute connection from the airport to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main station), Luisenplatz and darmstadtium Congress Centre.
