The meeting will take place in the AI building on the main university campus,
see the map enclosed, in this LINK

The walking distance from the city
center to the  campus is 20 minutes. There is also a bus connection: bus 304 and 306 from
ZOH (main bus station) to campus (Uni-Verwaltung), 8 minutes,




There are three ways:

– The best way is to fly to Nürnberg by plane and then go by train to Bayreuth;
Nürnberg is served, e.g., by Air France, KLM, Lufthansa, Air Berlin
and there are direct flight from Paris, Amsterdam, Zürich;
The train to Bayreuth takes about 75 minutes;
(metro U2 from airport to Nürnberg main train station and then direct train
to Bayreuth, which runs every 30 minutes)
– Another possibility is to fly to München by plane and then go by train to
München is one of the main airports in Germany.
The train to Bayreuth takes about 3 hours (S8 to München main train station
and then via Nürnberg to Bayreuth by ICE train and RE train)
– Another possibility is to fly to Frankfurt by plane and then go by train to
Frankfurt is one of the main airports in Germany.
The train to Bayreuth takes about 3.5 hours (ICE to Nürnberg and RE train
to Bayreuth)

Train connections can easily be found on and you can also buy the
train tickets there.

Here are some suggestions:
* Hotel Rheingold, ****, directly in the city center
* Hotel Goldener Anker, ****, directly in the city center
* Hotel Bayerischer Hof, ****, directly at the train station
* Hotel Lohmühle, ***, near city center
* H4 Hotel Residenzschloss, ****, near city center
