Getting to the University of Augsburg

The University of Augsburg is conveniently located in the southern outskirts of Augsburg. Here is a list of possible ways to get to the main campus by car, train and public transport.

By car

If you are using an automotive navigation system, please enter “Universitätsstr. 16, 86159 Augsburg”.

Motorway (Autobahn) A8 Munich - Stuttgart (from the east, west, and north)

From the A8 motorway, take the exit Augsburg-West. Turn onto the B17 highway in the direction of Landsberg. It takes approx. 10-15 minutes to the exit "Messe/Universität". Exit there, then turn right at the first set of traffic lights. You are now at the north-western corner of the campus.

Highway (Bundesstraße) B17 Landsberg - Augsburg (from the south)

From the direction of Landsberg, take the exit "Messe/Universität", then turn right at the first set of traffic lights. You are now at the north-western corner of the campus.

By rail

Augsburg is very well connected to the German and European rail networks. A wide variety of local, regional, national and international trains call at Augsburg Central station (Augsburg Hauptbahnhof). In particular, Augsburg is just a 40-minute ride from Munich Central station (München Hauptbahnhof) with trains running at least every half-hour during the day. Please refer to the web site of Deutsche Bahn for schedules and fares to Augsburg. From Augsburg Central, you can easily reach the university campus by tram (see next section).

Should you arrive from Munich on a regional train (RE; Regionalexpress), you can also get off at “Augsburg Haunstetterstraße”, which is one stop ahead of Augsburg Central. From there, you can catch the Line 3 tram (see section below) very conveniently, since it stops right at the foot of the platforms in the underpass.

By tram (from Augsburg Central rail station or the downtown core)

From Augsburg Central station or from the main tram hub, Königsplatz, take the Line 3 tram towards “Haunstetten West”. Trams run every 5 minutes during the day and every 15 minutes in the evening or on weekends. At Augsburg Central station, the tram stop is across the square outside the main building, to the left hand side. From Augsburg Central, it takes approximately 20 minutes to reach the campus at “Universität”.

Please note: There is also a university of applied sciences in Augsburg, which comes first on the tram route. You need to go on to “Universität” to reach us. There are English-language announcements on the tram, however.

From Haunstetterstraße station, the tram takes only about 10 minutes to “Universität”.

Approximately 400m straight across the campus, you will reach the faculty building where our chair is located. You find our faculty building ("J") on the following overview of our campus.

A single ticket (Einzelfahrschein) can be obtained from the driver. There are also vending machines on the platforms, selling all kinds of tickets in several languages. You need a ticket that is valid for fare zones 10 and 20 to go to the university.

Please remember to validate your ticket at a validator (orange or white boxes inside the tram) when you get on the tram (even tickets bought from the driver need to be validated).
