The event takes place at the Mathematischen Institut in the Georg-August-Universität: travel directions.
Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and Hannover Airport (HAJ) both feature excellent train connections to Göttingen. Travel directions to the Mathematics Institute can be found here. We definitely do not recommend to book flights via Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN) because of the bad connection to the public transportation network and Berlin (BER/TXL/SXF) because of the open problems coming with the planned airport move.
- Hostel 37 is a good and cheap option (single room 32 Euro per night; 4-bed and 6-bed rooms at a cheaper rate)
- Göttingen Youth Hostel is another option, reservations can be made through Hostelling International.
Accomodation in a hotel can be booked via the website of the Göttingen Tourist Office. Since the booking robot might give you hotels in the outskirts of Göttingen, make sure that the address in fact is Göttingen (but not "Adelebsen" or "Ebergötzen" and the like). Prices per night range between 40 Euro per night and infinity. The following hotels charge a price at the lower end of this interval:
Further options are Clarion Parkhotel, Hotel Schweizer Hof und Hotel Central. If nothing else works, then Intercede Guest rooms might be an option (simple, basic accommodation, no-frills, no catering, shared kitchen).
are an excellent option and can be directly booked via the website of the Göttingen Tourist Office.
University Guest House
Unfortunately fully booked - no accomocation available.
Lunch / Zentralmensa
Lunch (and diner) at very affordable prices can be taken in one of the students' canteens of the Göttingen students union ('Studentenwerk'). The nearest one, the 'Zentralmensa', is within walking distance (15 minutes). Upon Check-In, students participating in the summer school will receive a certificate so that they have to pay the same low prices as Göttingen students (instead of the higher prices for visitors).
Computers with internet access will be available as well WiFi access via participants' personal laptops.
General information about Göttingen (including cafes, bars and shopping) can be found in the GöGuide.
