Arriving by train
You should buy a through ticket to Bremen-Schönebeck, a
suburban railway station within five minutes walk from campus.
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 ticket in the direction Bremen-Farge for €2.75.
For this use a search screen first typing "Bremen", and then
"Farge." The ticket machines allow you to change language to
English. 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
