Goslar is located in the Harz Mountains region at the Southeastern tip of Lower Saxony. Goslar itself can be reached by train or car. The nearest airport is Hannover (HAJ).
If your initial arrival in Germany will be by air transportation, Hannover Airport (URL: http://www.hannover-airport.de/en/passengers-visitors/) (HAJ), located 104 km north of Goslar, will be your closest bet. The airport is being served by all major European airlines and offers a number of connections to many European hubs (Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna – Lufthansa/Eurowings; Amsterdam – KLM; Brussels – Brussels Airlines; Copenhagen – SAS; Moscow – Aeroflot; Istanbul – Turkish Airlines; Paris CDG – Air France; Zurich – Swiss) and some point-to-point connections by low cost carriers (Vueling, Wizz Air). From Hannover Airport, you can get a train connection to Hannover Main Station (15 minutes riding time) and from there to Goslar (see info about rail below) or rent your own vehicle (driving time to Goslar is approximately 75 minutes). Please be advised that air fares to Hannover can fluctuate significantly as the city is a well-used exhibition and trade fair destination. If you find air fares too high, flying into one of the other German major airports (Frankfurt, Berlin or Dusseldorf, even Munich) might be an option as they are all connected to the German rail system. The easiest alternative connection would be from Frankfurt. If you arrive by air transportation, please consider compensating for your carbon footprint.
The most convenient way to get to Goslar is by rail. Deutsche Bahn (URL: https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml) provides an hourly connection from Hannover Main Station which always leaves at 48 minutes past the hour and takes 65 minutes. If you are coming from a southerly direction, you can also already connect at Göttingen Main Station, although the service there is not as frequent as it is from Hannover.
Together with our conference hotel partner, we will be offering a special ticket that brings you to the conference from any German destination for only 99 Euros round-trip. For most trips beyond a regional train connection, this means significant savings. We will post the information here once it becomes available. In addition, Deutsche Bahn offers a number of special discounts for foreign visitors.
From the Goslar rail station, you can already see the hotel and walk there within five minutes.
Getting to Goslar by car is easy, driving in Goslar, an old medieval town, is less fun. So think about the question whether you really need a car. For those who will arrive by car, the hotel offers parking at a charge of 10 Euros per night. Please by advised that cars that you desire to park in the hotel garage cannot exceed a height if 180 cms. If higher, cars need to be parked at one of the parking lots outside of old town Goslar. In order to navigate you towards the hotel entrance, please use “Goslar, Bismarckstrasse 3A” for your device. Rental cars are available at all German airports and all major railway stations. Advanced booking is recommended.
