How to get there

From the airport:
Leave the airport building and take tram No 6 in the direction of ‘Universität’. Careful ‘Universität’ does NOT refer to Jacobs University! Buy a ticket for Zone 2 (approx. 3 Euros) from a ticket machine that can be found outside or inside the tram. Take the tram until the stop called ‘Hauptbahnhof’(Bremen central railway station). The ride takes about 15 minutes.
Enter the train station and take a local train in the direction of ‘Bremen-Vegesack’ (or ‘Farge’). They leave at least twice per hour at :04 and :34. Take the train until the stop called ‘Bremen-Schönebeck’. The train ride takes about 18 minutes. Walk towards the end of the train, climb one flight of stairs, cross a bridge and follow the road for 400m to campus.

From the central railway station in Bremen:
Take a local train in the direction of ‘Bremen-Vegesack’ (or ‘Farge’). If you are connecting, you should not need an extra ticket. If not, buy a Zone 2 ticket. Follow the second part of the directions given above.

Alternatively you can also take a cab from the airport or the central railway station. Make sure to ask for Jacobs University, not University of Bremen as this is a different place. The ride will take approx. 20 minutes and cost 35-40€.

In case you are arriving by car please see the following link for detailed instructions: Map. Due to ongoing construction works please follow the directions found here if you are arriving from South of Jacobs University.
