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 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 ticket to Bremen-Farge for €2.75 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, and exceptional cases to non-minors. Participants who would like to use the shuttle must let us know of their flight number and scheduled arrival time in advance. Shuttle service will be provided by a prior agreement only.

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 campus from Amsterdam or Frankfurt airports takes about five hours, from Hamburg or Hannover airports - around three hours, see information on Arriving by Train above.
