Travel to and from Regensburg

Car:

  • Google Maps to OTH / Google Maps to RCBE
  • Regensburg is located at the crossing of A93 and A3 in Eastern Bavaria.
  • The distance to Munich (airport) and Nuremberg (airport) is similar.
  • There are parking lots at OTH / University of Regensburg, the parking situation in the Old town of Regensburg can be difficult, a parking guidance system is available.
  • Most parts of the Old Town are pedestrian zones only. Make sure to park outside that zone and walk / take the bus.

Train:

  • The destination in Regensburg is „Regensburg Hbf.“ (train station). You can book your transport with Deutsche Bahn or your own service.
  • The Regensburg train station is quite central and in between old town and University / RCBE. Several hotels are located in immediate vicinity (Ibis, Hansa).

Airplane:

  • Munich (airport) and Nuremberg (airport) are the right airplane destinations for Regensburg. Munich airport is bigger.
  • From Munich, you can go by bus to Freising train station and from there to Regensburg train station. You will need a train ticket from Freising to Regensburg for that, which you can order locally or via Internet. From Nuremberg you can book your train ticket to Regensburg together with the Underground ticket you will need in Nuremberg with Deutsche Bahn here.
  • sammeltransferOr (the most convenient possibility) you can use „shared transfer“ for both airports with Airportliner. They will pick you up at the airport (both terminals) with small buses and bring you directly to your hotel in Regensburg.

Accomodation:

Regensburg, being UNESCO world heritage, has a lot of attractive destinations and many hotel rooms to offer. It all depends on where you want to be and how much you want to pay. The OTH / RCBE is south of the city center, so if you want to be close, you should take a hotel in the southern part of Regensburg. However, Regensburg being not that big, most hotels in the city are ok and nothing is really far away.
