Arrival by plane:

We suggest you fly to Frankfurt. There is a direct train (ICE) from Frankfurt Airport to Göttingen which takes about two hours. You can buy tickets online at Select Frankfurt Flughafen Fernbf as your point of departure. If you buy the ticket online ahead of time, you need to bring the credit card that you used for your booking for identification on the train. It is easiest to take a taxi (no more than 10€) to the hotel when necessary.

Another option would be Hannover Airport. There is a regular direct connection from Hannover Hbf to Göttingen. Regional trains take roughly an hour, and ICE or IC trains take 30 minutes.
