Arrival by Plane

There is no airport in Regensburg. The closest one is Munich Airport but you can also fly to Nuremberg or Frankfurt. Trains leave regularly from all these airports to Regensburg.
At www.bahn.de you will find schedules, connections and prices.

Arrival at Munich Airport:

If you arrive at Munich Airport, there are two ways to get to Regensburg: 

  • Shuttle service:

    There is a commercial shuttle service running from Munich Airport to Regensburg. You can find more information at: http://www.airportliner.com. Costs: EUR 42. Advance booking necessary! Have the shuttle drop you at the bus stop "Universität" and follow the signs to the International Office!

  • Bus and train to Regensburg:
    If you take the train from the Munich airport to Regensburg, you do not need to go to the central train station in Munich. Take bus 635 from in front of the airport's central area (Z) to the train station in Freising (the trip takes approximately 20 minutes) and change here to a train to Regensburg. All trains running between Munich and Regensburg stop at Freising. This will save you time and money. Costs for train and bus are EUR 21. A taxi from the Regensburg train station to the university costs about EUR 10.
