How to reach the venue

By train: Take any train to Cologne central train station (Köln Hbf). From there it is a 5 minutes walk to the Maternushaus. It is also possible to take a train to Köln Deutz on the other side of the Rhine. From there local trains go to Köln Hbf every few minutes and it is only one station. See the Webpage of Deutsche Bahn for more detailed information: www.bahn.de

By Airplane: The airports Cologne-Bonn (Köln-Bonn, CGN), Düsseldorf (DUS), and Frankfurt (FRA) are all reasonably close located and have a direct train connection to Cologne. However, be careful with cheap airlines such as Ryanair, as some of them connect to Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN) and Düsseldorf-Weeze (NRN), which are much more difficult to reach with public transport.
