By air

We recommend to fly into Berlin (TXL) and take the train down to Wittenberg, which is about a one hour train ride away from Berlin.

By train

Take a train to Wittenberg Hauptbahnhof (main station).

You can check for timetables and book a ticket on the website of the Deutsche Bahn ( There are bargain price options if you book one or two months in advance, possibly also offered by your local travel agency. Of course, you can also buy a ticket at the airport/station once you arrive in Germany (no special offers possible).

* A note on the website of the Deutsche Bahn:
For a change of language, select your country or UK or USA from the drop-down menu on the top of the homepage. Unfortunately, you need to type in/select the German names of cities and stations. Relevant stations and terms are:

  • main station: "Hauptbahnhof" or, in abbreviation, "Hbf"
  • airport: "Flughafen"
  • Munich: "München" (the website also accepts the word without the Umlaut)

The venue (Leucorea) is only a ten minute walk from the station (see map below). You can also take a cab to the Leucorea, which should take you about 5 minutes.
