  • How to reach AIP
    From airport Berlin/Tegel it migth be wiser to take bus 109 and change to the metro line S7 at "Charlottenburg" (direction Potsdam, Hauptbahnhof) because of some reconstruction on the way of bus X9. Please, leave the metro at station "Babelsberg", if you want to reach AIP or the hotels nearby.
  • How to reach the hotel

After 200 meters you will reach first "Apart Hotel Vivaldi" (Southern end of green line in our map) and immediately after "Pension Unicat" (both on the right).
    You may either walk every day up- and downhill (10-15 min) to AIP or use the bus 694 (3 stops) to go there.

Hotel Mercure is number 13 in our map. To get to AIP on Monday go back to "Potsdam Hauptbahnhof" and take bus 694 (direction "Stern Center"), get off at "Sternwarte" (blue cross East to "Park Babelsberg" on our map).

  • Tickets
    To get from Berlin to Potsdam you need a three-zone-ticket (ABC) valid for Berlin/Brandenburg. The recent price is 2.80 EUR, valid for 2 hours, and you can buy it in the bus. If you took accomodation in Berlin you should buy a weekly ticket for 32.30 Euro instead, immediately after arrival at the airport. With this ticket you can go everywhere inside Berlin/Potsdam.
    For accomodation in the center of Potsdam (Hotel Mercure, Hotel am Luisenplatz), you should buy a weekly ticket for Potsdam (zone AB) for 11.60 EUR immediately after arrival at the mainstation Potsdam Hauptbahnhof. With this ticket you can go everywhere inside Potsdam including the way to AIP and backwards.
    Even for participants living in Babelsberg (Pension Unicat, Hotel Vivaldi) who prefer to take the bus to the institute every day, a weekly ticket is recommended. You can buy it in front of the Babelsberg metro station. Please, take into account that a usual single ticket inside Potsdam is 1.70 EUR (or 1.20 Euro if you go not more than 3 stops).
