Regarding the sustainable aspect of the conference, we also want to draw your attention towards two other ways to reach and leave Bayreuth. Maybe it appeals to you using either...
The Sustainable Sports Symposium will take place mainly in the NW II (Natural and Physical Science II) of the University of Bayreuth, which is marked, among others, on the map of the university campus below:
You can find the exact location of the Rondell - the heart of the University of Bayreuth - on Google Maps here.
To reach the BaySpo, we recommend taking the bus to "Uni-Verwaltung" ("University Administration").
Recommended bus lines are 306 (towards Campus); 316 (towards Campus) and 304 (towards Universität). By clicking onto the bus line, you will find the various timetables.

Bayreuth is well-connected, with the freeway A9 next to the city. The campus is located in the south of the town, just 900 meters from the interchange to freeway “A9” (exit 'Bayreuth-Süd'). Signs labelled “UNIVERSITÄT” will direct you to the campus when driving from the freeway or from downtown.
The best way to get to Bayreuth by flight is via Nuremberg Airport. From Nuremberg Airport, it is possible to take the subway (U2) to Nuremberg main train station (Nürnberg Hauptbahnhof) and from there directly to Bayreuth main station via regional train (approx. 1 hour and 30 min).
