Information about Accommodation


Accommodation in Augsburg


There are plenty Hotels, B&Bs, and Inns in Augsburg. To facilitate your search for the right place we would like to offer some general guidelines and suggestions. Nearly every hotel can be booked through booking portals. Portals with good coverage include booking.com and hrs.com. Independent reviews of most hotels can be found on tripsadvisor.com.

 

Guidelines

If you book a hotel please consider the following.

  • Unfortunately, as the central tram station will be under major reconstruction in 2012, public transportation by tram and bus is a little bit restricted during the workshop. A new tram line (tram no. 13) starting at "Moritzplatz" (Moritz Square) in direction "Haunstetten West" will get you to the university (stop: "Universität") in approximately 20 minutes. Moritzplatz is a square in the heart of Augsburg city that is in walking distance (10 min.) from the main station. Regular tram services run every 8 minutes from 08:00h to 18:00h. In the evening the trams run every 15 minutes. Services stop at midnight.

  • If you book a hotel near Moritzplatz this will enable you to enjoy the City of Augsburg and you will be in walking distance to public transport (Tram No.13) to and from the conference venue. The informal part of the workshop (e.g. pre-conference get-together, conference dinner) will take place in the city center as well.

  • The second best location is the area between the town center and the university (conference venue). We recommend to stay in one of those areas unless you have a car at your disposal or do not mind the occasional taxi ride.

    Luxury accomodation

  • Romantikhotel Augsburger Hof
    The family-run hotel is located on the northern brink of the town center. Being part of the "Romantic Hotels"-chain it combines a touch of luxury with affordable rates. A tram line towards Moritzplatz runs nearby, but a car is recommended for this location.

  • Steigenberger Drei Mohren
    Being located in the old Fugger Palace on Augsburg's main boulevard "Maximillianstraße" this traditional hotel is one of the most famous in whole Bavaria.

  • Dorint Hotel Augsburg
    The Dorint is Augsburg's top convention center and business hotel. Although it is possible to get to the university by public transportation it is a bit labourious (take bus B1 towards Moritzplatz, then switch to tram line 13 towards Haunstetten West, approx. time 40 minutes to the university). We recommend this hotel if you have a car (approx. 7 min. to the university) at your disposal or are willing to use a taxi (should be less than € 10,--). Click here to see the route on Google Maps.
