Take the A5 motorway to Karlsruhe. Leave the motorway at the Karlsruhe-Mitte exit and take the next exit to Oststadt. Continue on Wolfartsweierer street and take the second exit Ludwig-Erhard-Allee at the roundabout. Turn right into Fritz-Erler-Straße and continue on Waldhornstraße. The parking garage is located on the right-hand side next to the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) (address for the navigation system Zirkel 2, 76131 Karlsruhe).
We recommend a couple of hotels near the convention centre "Gartenhalle" and in the city centre of Karlsruhe.
