The town Remagen-Rolandseck, Germany, can easily be reached by train from the central train station of the city of Bonn. From the Rolandseck train station it is about a 15 minute walk to reach the event site “Haus Humboldtstein”.

Arriving by plane:

The nearest international airport is Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN), located at a distance of approximately 25 kilometers from the center and Bonn Central Station.  The express bus line SB60 direction “Hauptbahnhof (Central Station)” will take you from the airport to Bonn Central Station. You can buy your ticket at the ticket machine or from the bus driver. Continue with “Arriving by train”.

Arriving by train:

The nearest train station for Inter-City trains is Bonn Central Station. From there, the easiest way is to take the regional train “Regionalbahn (RB) MittelrheinBahn” (Trans Regio) in the direction Mainz to the stop Remagen-Rolandseck, where you will have to get off. This takes about 15 minutes and you will have to buy a ticket at price level “Preisstufe 2b CityPlus Köln oder Bonn“ at the ticket machine or in the service center at Bonn Central Station before you get on the train.

From the train station Remagen-Rolandseck, you will reach “Haus Humboldtstein” by foot. Leave the train station and turn left (in direction Bonn).
