Arrival and first day

Your arrival – we accompany you

Darmstadt’s location in Germany is very central, thus, you have various possibilities to arrive. The international airport Frankfurt am Main is only 30 minutes away and there is an airport shuttle service (AirLiner) in operation that takes you directly to Darmstadt main train station. The budget airline airport Frankfurt/Hahn is approx. 2 hours away. Moreover, you can also take the German railroad (Deutsche Bahn) or long-distance busses to get to Darmstadt. Detailed directions on how to reach Darmstadt and find h_da can be accessed here.

While planning your itinerary please keep in mind that participation in our orientation program is mandatory. We will start early in the morning. For this reason Non-European students are asked to arrive one day prior to the start of the orientation program. Information on accommodation can be accessed here.
