Itinerary - where to find "Beyond Canon_"

How to get to Regensburg

Regensburg is easy to reach from either Munich airport "Franz Josef Strauß" or from Nuremberg airport "Albrecht Dürer".

From Munich airport terminal, the "Flughafen Express" train connects every hour directly to Regensburg main station.

  • From Nuremberg airport, there is a subway shuttle (U-Bahn) every 10 minutes to Nuremberg main station and from there, a regional train (RE) connects ro Regensburg main station.
  • If there is no convenient train connection from/to your flight, the Airportliner (to be booked in advance) is a good alternative.
  • For the timetables, please check: www.bahn.de

How to find "Beyond Canon_"

The Centre for Advanced Studies "Beyond Canon_" is located on the university of Regensburg campus, in the so-called Sammelgebäude.

  • From Regensburg main station, please take bus line 6 (direction "Klinikum") or bus line 11 (direction " Burgweinting Sophie-Scholl-Straße") and get off at the bus stop "Mensa".
  • Please enter the Sammelgebäude  (a six story building directly opposite the University Mensa bus stop).
  • Take the elevator to 3rd floor (European counting) and follow the signs to the coordination office (room 319a).

Travel and accommodation

Travel expenses

The project will cover the travel expenses (economy class) as well as the agreed nights of accommodation for invited speakers. Please book early to get a reasonably priced flightand make your own travel arrangements to/from Regensburg. We kindly ask you to keep all the original receipts for the reimbursement of your travel expenses (via bank transfer after your visit).


For your hotel/holiday flat bookings, please confirm your dates of arrival and departure as soon as they are known. Our coordination office will be happy to assist you finding a nice accommodation.

Papers in our Fellows' Brunches

For our Fellows' Brunches, we are usually planning with 90 minutes for each paper. Thus, a speaking time of 35-45 minutes would be ideal to leave enough time for a vivid discussion afterwards.

In case you would like us to print handouts or if you have a .ppt presentation, please send us your data a few days in advance.

We will provide you with a projector, a Windows laptop and laser pointer, but of course you may bring your own devices. If you have a MacBook, it might be practical to bring your own adaptor (as well as adaptor plugs).

Your audience consists of researchers from various fields (theologians, but also historians, philologists, archaeologists, art historians, etc.) and career stages. For a fruitful discussion, we kindly ask you to observe our Guidelines for Papers.
