What Do I Need to Do When Traveling to Germany for Customs?

Please review the latest official regulations here.


  • If you followed our advice you’ll land at Frankfurt Airport, please check its website. Pick up your luggage and pass the security.
  • Make your way towards “Frankfurt Flughafen Fernbahnhof” (Frankfurt Airport long-distance station)
  • Shortly before you enter the station, which is constructed out of glass, you pass the socalled “AIRail Terminal” on your left side. Go in there and get yourself a ticket for the train to “Heidelberg Hbf“.
  • Note: There are some connections during the day, where you enter the train and drive directly to Heidelberg. Ask the staff at the AIRail Terminal for these. With the ‘normal’ and more frequent connection you have to change trains at “Mannheim Hauptbahnhof” once. This is still very easy!
  • Go into the station, orientate yourself, choose the right track and use the escalator to get to the trains.
  • If you took the direct connection sit back and drive about 45 minutes to Heidelberg Main Station.
  • If you took the connection over “Mannheim”, exit the train after ~30 minutes at Mannheim Main Station and change tracks/trains accordingly to your ticket. NOTE: You can always go to track 9 and drive with “S3” to Heidelberg. Your ticket is valid in any case.
  • Congratulations: You arrive at “Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof”. The conference is on the other side of the street.

Use the Deutsche Bahn website.

Your destination station is: ”Heidelberg Hbf”

TIP: If you visit us by plane, enter “Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf” as start and “Heidelberg Hbf” as destination (see above).

  • Hauptbahnhof = main station
  • Hauptbahnhof is often abbreviated as “Hbf”.
  • Deutsche Bahn = German train company
  • Ankunft = arrival
  • Abfahrt = departure
  • Gleis = track/platform
  • Verspätung = delay

Please use your favorite maps application (Google Maps – for example – works fine for Germany) and plan your trip to one of the relevant addresses. Your hotel or the Print Media Academy (PMA) is maybe the best choice to start with.

TIP: To find PMA just try to find Heidelberg Main station – it’s right there.


Follow the “P18” (Google Maps Link) signs at the “Hauptbahnhof”. It’s close.
