How to get there: Please see the maps below
Long distance travellers/ Arrival by train: From Frankfurt Airport, take the ICE train connection directly to Goettingen (It will take about 2 hours). From Hanover Airport, there are train connections via a local train (20 minutes) to the main train station. Then, take the ICE train connection directly to Goettingen (it will take about 30 more minutes). Please make use of the travel service of the German railroad at http://bahn.hafas.de/bin/query.exe/en
