Trains from Bremen Main Station to Bremen-Schönebeck show Bremen-Vegesack or Bremen-Farge as final destination. They run every 30 minutes till late, leaving main station at 04 and 34 minutes past each hour from platform 5 or 6. During peak times, there are additional services at 19 and 49 minutes past each hour.

Should you end up at Bremen main station without a through ticket to Bremen-Schönebeck, you must buy a ticket at one of the ticket machines in the station. You cannot buy tickets on the train. Get a Tarif Zone II ("Preisstufe II") ticket at €3.00. You may have to validate the ticket by time-stamping it in one of the little blue boxes on the station platform.

When you arrive at Bremen-Schönebeck, take the stairs up the bridge, cross the bridge and follow the road (which turns into Bruno-Bürgel-Straße). You will reach the Jacobs main gate (B in map below) after approximately 500m.

Arriving by air

Bremen Airport is located close to the city center. As a hub of Ryan Air, it offers convenient direct flights to many European destinations, as well as generally good international connections via Frankfurt, Paris, or Amsterdam.

Arriving at the airport, take Tram 6 up to Bremen Hauptbahnhof (main station), then follow the instructions above to Bremen-Schönebeck station for a five minute walk to campus. There is a ticket machine on the tram which takes Euro coins, get a Tarif Zone II ("Preisstufe II") ticket at €3.00 which is valid all the way to Bremen-Schönebeck. Total travel time from Bremen Airport to Jacobs University is approximately one hour.

There will be a limited shuttle service from Bremen Airport to campus. Priority is given to minors. Participants who would like to use the shuttle must let us know of their flight number and scheduled arrival time in advance.

It is worth checking for convenient connections to Hamburg or Hannover as well. Both airports have train connections to Bremen within two hours travel time. Intercontinental travelers may want to check for cheaper direct flights into Amsterdam or Frankfurt. Train travel to Bremen takes about five hours, see information on Arriving by Train above.
